  7. 7. Impact <ul><li>IT infrastructures and applications were designed for an agrarian model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dominance of the LAN </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Nomadic model requires very different design & development paradigm </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Proliferation of the WAN </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This has a significant impact on the efficiency of the WAN </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Application Protocols were designed for a low latency, LAN environment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Because of this LAN applications delivered over a WAN suffers from </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Latency </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Congestion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>In general, unlike a LAN-dominant environment , a WAN-dominant environment suffers: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Latency </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Congestion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>QoS </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Visibility </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Application responsiveness </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Creates unproductive sub-segment of the workforce </li></ul>

  9. 9. Issues Facing IT Execs <ul><li>Optimization of capital on IT solutions (solutions that scale/protect long term investment/are part of the strategy for their companies); </li></ul><ul><li>Security of applications, data, customers, etc (compliance with regulatory laws/GLBA for banks, etc. HIPPA for medical, etc.); </li></ul><ul><li>Enhancement of the user experience (as the IT staff is a staff functional position and not line and must now show value to their customers the users!). </li></ul>
