Today's need for IPAM goes far beyond IP address tracking and allocation. With the ever-increasing size of today's networks, keeping track of multiple types of data pertaining to the devices connected across the network becomes increasingly complex. While IT vendors are creating more and more tools to help track network devices, the information is just not centralized, resulting in reduced confidence in the data's accuracy and timeliness. In some cases data is growing more disparate and out of sync among each "ecosystem" of information tracking, with little or no sharing with other groups, making the overall picture even murkier. The single greatest challenge today in IP address management is to centrally track and maintain a near-real-time view of all the adds, moves, and changes occurring on the network. Every time a virtual machine is provisioned, or a tablet leaves the wireless network, the IP address allocation landscape changes, and the IPAM database needs to be kept up to date.
