How to Boost Your WAN to Top Speed


While globalization can bridge distances and enhance communication, the story is a little different when it comes to wide area networks (WANs) and their effects on branch application performance. High-latency connections and chattiness cause slowed data transmission, and consequently, decreased user productivity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: a fast branch office application delivery infrastructure.

Transportation Management and the Adaptive Supply Chain Network


To respond to the demands of today’s highly competitive global environment, traditional linear supply chains are evolving into complex, global ecosystems. These “pull” (demand-driven) environments working in conjunction with traditional “push” environments are known as adaptive supply chain networks (ASCNs). ASCNs allow all supply chain stakeholders to share knowledge, make collaborative decisions, and sense and respond immediately to changing conditions.

Counting the Cost of Network Efficiency


It is hard to quantify the costs of poor network or application management, but they include lost productivity due to time spent fixing problems and increased capital and operating expenses. 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 does, but plays a key role in achieving business goals.

There is actually a direct correlation between network performance and application performance. There is of course intrinsic value in network hardware and software, but more importantly many people in the organization rely on the applications that the network supports—so if the network is running slowly, users’ applications will slow down too. Hence a budget priority should be where changes in the network are needed to avoid problems arising or improve application performance and hence overall productivity.

This white paper makes a case for the organizational need for solutions and tools which provide network performance information and help identify problems and their causes and areas where improvements should be made, making it possible for budgetary decisions to be based on performance data. It looks at questions the IT team needs to ask to get to the heart of network problems and find the best solution, as well as three categories of network improvements, and also details how an AANPM, or application aware network performance management solution, takes an application-centric approach to network issues and can lead to faster problem solving, reducing downtime, increasing productivity, and saving troubleshooting time.
