Managing the growing pains in today’s expanding networks
Change may be constant, but in today’s IT networks there’s one type of change that’s more constant than others—growth. More people are generating more data than ever before with iPhones, iPads, Android phones and other mobile devices. Each platform and each business operation requires new applications. Work occurs across greater distance. But functions still occur on the network. The result? To accommodate increasingly sophisticated personal devices and wider ranges of service types, networks are expanding exponentially. And the pressure to expand creates larger and more complex network infrastructures, with greater challenges for network management.
