But when creating IT budgets, organizations need to consider the impact of investment in network and application management on overall revenues. IT efficiency should be a priority item for any corporate agenda, and executives need to understand that the network is not only a core part of what their organization... Read More

Guide to IT Best Practices in Application-Aware Network Performance Management

Businesses are constantly striving to do more with fewer resources, and information technology (IT) departments are subject to the same pressures. They must contend with a growing number of applications and an increasingly complex infrastructure. The IT department’s arsenal includes tools for monitoring network, application, server, database, and end user performance, but typically they are not integrated with each other.
