Ipswitch Network Management Division Launches WUGspace Community Universe

New Community Portal Launches for Network Professionals Worldwide

Lexington, Mass. – March 24, 2011  Ipswitch Inc.’s Network Management Division, developer of the WhatsUp Gold suite of innovative IT management solutions, today announced the launch of its WUGspace online community portal. WUGspace is an IT community centred around meaningful and valuable technical content for network engineers, IT managers, architects and system administrators.

 

As the first port of call for network professionals, WUGspace will continually evolve with brand new content added daily designed to help and educate. In addition to a resource centre, technical white papers, tips and tricks, and WhatsUp Gold scripts, members will be able to leverage a revamped community forum so that customers can communicate directly to WhatsUp Gold’s product management and development teams as well as offer usage cases and recommendations to each other. 

 

Community members can fully complete their WUGspace profile to network with peers and colleagues throughout the world and list their professional abilities, personal interests, associations, documents and reports, and even existing social media accounts. 

 

“We developed WUGspace for the global network professional community,” said Ipswitch Network Management Division Community Manager, Jason Williams. “Through WUGspace they can ask questions, voice their opinion, share knowledge and find meaningful solutions to enable them to optimise their infrastructure. WUGspace also allows them to keep up with IT trends by seeing what their peers are doing, and benefit from shared scripts and best practice recommendations.”
