Rapid Network Management Application Development

Whereas the recent hardware innovations brought increasingly powerful computers to the market at constantly lower prices, the development cost and time of software applications has not decreased at all. In the field of network management, applications and tools are usually large, expensive and difficult to build and maintain, preventing their diffusion.

This paper proposes three ways of building low-cost management applications including a new method for rapid application development based on tools developed by the author. Reducing development time, complexity and cost gives developers the chance to create their own management applications without having to be network management experts or highly skilled developers.
