  • Marimba’s Castanet Product Family bridges that gap in this new world, to enable Internet Services Management
  • Open standards are critical to the fundamental transformation occurring right now that expands how customers get solutions and how technology is provided. It's similar to the transformation we experienced in computing, where the closed, protected, and centralized mainframe gave way to an open computing model. No longer did all the pieces of the solution trickle in from one vendor. Rather, we experienced an explosion of innovation, competition, and solutions offering customers more choice, flexibility, and providers. This same phenomenon is happening in telecommunications. The vertically-integrated, closed model of the central office switch is simply incapable of quickly delivering the range of flexible solutions demanded in this fast-paced, whitewater business environment. By necessity, the rigid structures of the past are giving way to an open communications world built on standards, where many providers can contribute to the customer solution. And deliver them faster. This ecosystem as it's sometimes called, is quickly creating an increasing number of best-of-breed providers, delivering applications, servers, Internet appliances, systems integration, and more. In the Internet ecosystem model for doing business, a company creates value by forming an ever-expanding community through direct links, with partners, suppliers, distributors, employees, and customers. Key Ideas : — Customers are now in control -- they are demanding choice and flexibility. And given the pace of change, they want the best solutions quickly. Transition :
