BSM software is an outgrowth of network management systems as the software tracks the performance and availability of the networks components across a data center. 4 Traditional network management systems focus on measuring and monitoring the technical metrics and trends of IT applications and infrastructure.

Although these systems enable the IT operations team to identify problem areas from a technical point-of-view for a given piece of the infrastructure, significant gaps exist in determining the business impact of a specific problem. For example, if a router and a server fail at the same time, these systems offer no way for the network operations center operator to determine which of these is more critical or which business services have been impacted by the failure of these devices.
