Think remote work is just a passing fad? Take a look at the businesses popping up in support of the concept, and you might be convinced otherwise. Take, for example, Pizzatime, a new service from digital agency Planetary that organizes virtual pizza parties for teams collaborating from multiple branch locations. Leveraging Slack, the tool takes orders from each team member...

The opening keynote from Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins started by pointing out that this was the company’s 30th year hosting a version Cisco Live, emphasizing just how much has changed in the tech world since the conference was born in 1989 as “Networkers.” (Shoutout to our intern @JarrettLee828 for leveraging that bit of knowledge for a prize during the show)...

Many businesses are supporting remote locations, which include any office or location that doesn’t have its own data center and connects to a company data center over a network—LAN, WAN or public internet. Scaling to these locations means that network types are expanding too. Plus, application infrastructure is becoming distributed. SaaS and cloud providers host their apps from a huge...

We heard recently from one of our customers about how they’ve been using AppNeta’s performance monitoring at their company, a healthcare support organization. (They’ll remain nameless here.) The key application our customer, the head of IT, is supporting is the electronic health record system for hundreds of hospitals and doctors’ offices. Reliability, efficiency and security are obviously the top goals...

Here’s a bold statement: AppNeta is simply the best solution for monitoring modern web applications and the networks that deliver them. The simple truth is that traditional monitoring tools aren’t designed to provide visibility into applications delivered via the WAN, whether they are internal or third-party SaaS apps.

How Big Data Causes Big Problems for the WAN
by Joe Michalowski on

Who doesn’t love data these days? For business leaders, the more data you can collect, the better. Some might resist certain technologies in digital transformation, but it seems everyone can agree that big data analytics makes business life easier. Everyone except IT leaders, that is. While business leaders add ever-increasing data inputs with IoT sensors, IT teams are left to...

Update Your WAN for the IPv6 Transition
by Joe Michalowski on

No one would blame you if you can’t muster up much enthusiasm for IPv6. After all, IPv6 has been “the future” of internet protocols since its inception in 1998, without much evidence it's happening. Even though you’ve been reading about the impending downfall of IPv4 since 2007, here we are in 2017 watching adoption just barely creep above 20%. You...

Just as you’re starting to get comfortable with the cloud, IT reporters may have you thinking there’s a new wave about to replace it—edge computing. And as the Internet of Things takes hold in the workplace, moving processing power to the edge will certainly be important.

Ghostbusting in Real Time for Remote Offices
by Damian Roskill on

You’ve just gotten to work when a new support ticket comes in from your company's San Francisco remote office (you’re at headquarters in Boston). Office 365 was running very slowly yesterday. It’s their third help desk ticket this week, and the others are still unresolved in ServiceNow. Your first move is to call the user, only to hear that everything...

Do You Have Empathy for Remote Employees?
by Joe Michalowski on

The last thing an IT leader needs is more to worry about. Networks are more complicated than ever, and you already have your hands full with new configurations, infrastructure troubleshooting, resource allocation and new tech deployments. But there’s a problem. The business problems you used to let other leaders solve are starting to bleed into IT territory. You aren’t just...

Remote Monitoring With End Users in Mind
by Alan Earls on

Remote monitoring is an old problem. In fact, it was a challenge 150 years ago with the emergence of the so-called Victorian Internet, the global communication network based on electric telegraphy. That “internet” depended on human monitoring and the most basic kinds of performance measures. Today, no one charged with monitoring distant IT functions at remote locations has the luxury...

In today’s increasingly mobile workplace, organizations need to consider productivity, operational efficiency, and business continuity when migrating their employees, data centers and critical applications to the cloud. As new collaboration technologies make productive, remote teamwork possible, businesses can expect their roster of off-site employees to continue to grow. Along with employees working remotely, companies today are often supporting a remote...

Are Your End Users Haunted by Ghosts?
by Joe Michalowski on

No, that’s not a question for superstitious IT leaders. We’re talking about application performance ghost issues—the bane of IT’s existence. Ghost issues are the ones that come up intermittently to degrade end-user experience, but are often impossible to reproduce, identify and fix. Your IT team might be a great group of problem solvers, but application architectures are getting more complicated,...
