Innovative businesses that view the network as critical to success are coming to the realization that legacy network infrastructure often can t keep pace with today s escalating demands and risks which compromises effectiveness. Performance limitations, an inability to quickly adapt to changing business requirements, and administration complexities can divert IT resources, stifle innovation and diminish competitive advantage.
"IT organizations supporting high-performance businesses are under continuous pressure to support the ever-changing application and service requirements. The network is no longer about basic plumbing -- it s about aligning business priorities with a service-enabling network infrastructure," said Mark Fabbi, VP and distinguished analyst, Gartner. "Networking infrastructure must deliver operational simplicity and reliability to enable the accelerated deployment of applications and services. Solutions built with this in mind will meet the dynamic IT requirements."
