At the same time, the software developed by Microsoft, have been swallowing all the processing power available.

    The management of the network varies according to demand. There is no unique way that is applicable to all environments. However, there are some common elements that are applicable to almost all network applications. The definition of network management says this is a process to maximize the reliability and use of components of the network to optimize network availability and responsiveness. The question arises, which will be managed by this process? The answer is, it's the network. But this response is considered too vague. This becomes essential in large complex environments, where networks covering the whole world would vary depending on the topology, platform, protocols, security, and suppliers.

    There may be infrastructure that is responsible for two classified and unclassified networks, with a wide variety of security requirements, supplier involvement , and government regulations. This should be a quick decision, since the network management is concerned. It is imperative to decide which elements of the management task would be administered by any department. For example, responsibility for managing the encryption could be entrusted to a government agency and the department's internal security organization could be responsible for managing network security, while the support service facility is managed by computer Operations Department, which administer network password and other allied tasks.

    The owner of the network management process must be well versed in network operating systems, utility programs, software support, and key components such as switches, routers, hubs, and repeaters. The responsible person must be target oriented and have excellent skills in planning. It is desirable that the owner must have a thorough understanding of infrastructure software and hardware and the ability to analyze metrics.
