Market Wire reports that Network Instruments released its fourth annual State
of the Network Global Study. Results from the study indicate that although a
majority of companies are implementing new technologies, they are lacking
appropriate tools to accurately manage performance. Most of those surveyed
realized benefits by migrating to the cloud, including infrastructure cost
reductions and increased application availability.
“While network teams saw substantial benefits from cloud computing, virtualization, and unified communication initiatives, they are spending more time managing and troubleshooting related performance problems,’ said Brad Reinboldt, senior product manager of Network Instruments. ‘I was surprised by the number of organizations failing to verify if their monitoring solutions support these environments. If IT can’t address these problems, they risk not only degrading application performance but threatening overall business productivity.'”
