What are Instant Best Practices?

Instant Best Practices are Argent’s unique technology that combines the best expert knowledge into one fully-integrated solution.

Until Instant Best Practices, you’d have to read tedious White Papers, download and install quirky scripts, install so-called “Management” packs, find a slew of vendors’ add-ons, etc, etc, etc.

All these tedious chores took you time and not to mention all the finger pointing from different vendors.

Rather than being a manager and looking to move up the food chain, you were stuck wasting your time doing the donkey work of trying to make yet-another badly written script work for your environment.
