What is Network Management

Encyclopedia of Networked and Virtual Organizations
Since networks are dynamic and thus not only “one-time foundation events,” they need support when they are established, in their operation and when they have to be modified and when they are closed, that is they need network management. This instrument can be realized through a specific partner as well as in cooperation.

The provision of services and the production of wares and services nowadays often require the cooperation of partners from different sectors. These cooperations can comprise public and private organizations, companies, universities, NGOs, and other groupings as well as individuals. The cooperative collaboration is esteemed as a core element of democratic social systems within a free market economy (Kirsch, 1996; Pongsiri, 2001). As one relevant method of organizing such collaborations, public private networks (PPN) extend the concept of public private partnerships (PPP) by adding the idea of networking and its core elements. From a scientific point of view as well as from the business perspective there is a shortcoming in the systematic processing of ideas, motivations, and forms as well as implications for internal and external participants of PPPs/PPNs. In the following, partnerships between partners from public and private business environments will be discussed. (Pongsiri, 2001) In particular, PPPs and PPNs in the field of academic education will be portrayed, since the cooperation in knowledge intensive areas is seen as an important issue. (Inkpen, 1996; Seufert, von Krogh, & Back, 1999) In the following the concepts of PPPs and PPNs will be explained. This will be done by an extensive literature review. The aim is to provide the required definitions and to discuss the incorporated views of others.

Much of the information required by a network manager is located in the devices which make up the network, in particular, monitoring stations; and producing a complete understanding of the network behavior requires information from different locations, hence either the decision maker must fetch the data, or the decision maker must travel to the location(s) of the data.
