For the teams tasked with managing network performance, the job at hand continues to grow more important to the business, and more challenging. More applications continue to come online and compete for network resources. It grows increasingly vital, yet difficult, to parse which applications are running on the network, and even harder to ensure that the highest priority applications continue to perform optimally. This paper draws on a market survey to provide a current look at network performance management, outlining network teams’ current approaches, challenges and opportunities.
Review the findings from this market survey on the challenges and priorities of managing network performance in an application-driven economy including more than 200 executives. The survey was focused on polling respondents from large enterprises who were responsible for network administration. 78% of respondents were from organizations that had annual revenues of greater than $1.5 billion and 90% of respondents were network engineers and managers.
