The Art of Application Centric Networking
Trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), virtualization and cloud are rendering application deployment and delivery more challenging than ever for IT departments. Applications have moved further away from the employees who rely on them, introducing the potential for latency, security and availability issues. Still, these trends can’t be ignored. Employees want to access applications anytime, from anywhere, on any device; and they expect the same level of performance and reliability that they’re used to in the office. At the same time, enterprises are eager to gain the cost and management benefits of centralizing applications in the data center or cloud. Bottom line: IT departments need to deliver. They need to find a way to ensure optimal application delivery to keep employees productive and the business agile - or put the company’s ability to innovate, compete and contain costs at risk.
