Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a research Webinar entitled “Managing Networks in the Age of Cloud, SDN, and Big Data: Network Management Megatrends 2014,” featuring EMA VP of Research, Network Management, Jim Frey and EMA Principal Research Analyst, Network Management Tracy Corbo.
Public/Private/Hybrid Cloud, SDN, virtualization, mobility, Big Data... the list of technology changes and innovations affecting the daily lives of network managers, planners, and engineers is long. And in parallel, the network has never been more visible or important as an essential element for IT success. How are networking professionals dealing with these major disruptions while keeping their eyes on the ultimate goal of highly reliable, high-performing connectivity? What changes must be made to network management products, workflows, and organizations to keep pace, let alone stay ahead of the game?
In response, EMA has conducted a major research study to assess and better understand the current and emerging influences affecting the daily priorities of network managers and operators and the management tools, technologies, and practices they employ.
During this Webinar, Frey and Corbo will provide highlights of this new research and:
Detail current demands placed on network planners and operators
Examine the impact that Cloud is having on network visibility and control
Discuss organizational shifts towards increasingly application and service-oriented teams
Look at the top most common root causes of network and application performance issues
Reveal surprising results on which management data sources are considered most valuable and important for network managers across organization types and sizes.
The Webinar is Tuesday, April 15 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Those who wish to attend can register at: http://research.enterprisemanagement.com/network-management-megatrends2014-webinar-pr.html.
