Canon and Netaphor Software Announced Advanced Capabilities
LAKE SUCCESS, NY and IRVINE, CA—Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc., and NETAPHOR Software Inc. announced an agreement where Canon U.S.A. will make available an integrated software module based on Netaphor's MetaConsole technology. The solution will allow IT Administrators to monitor, manage, and control their imageRUNNER and imageCLASS devices directly within their Windows based version of Unicenter NSM from Computer Associates International, Inc (CA).
Java-based MetaConsole enables management of a
variety of network devices, like Canon's imageRUNNER line, within leading
network management consoles such as CA's Unicenter NSM, which provides superior
management of the health and availability of the heterogeneous computing
"IT managers who use Unicenter NSM to manage their overall network now have the ability to use those same powerful tools to manage their networked Canon digital copiers, which are becoming pervasive throughout large corporate enterprises," said Dennis Amorosano, director and assistant general manager of Canon U.S.A.'s Integrated Business Systems Division. "Adopting MetaConsole preserves in-house development resources while providing users with a proven solution."
