Customer InterviewsNetwork Team is now the “Trusted Partner” Instrumental in success of key IT initiatives Increased visibility drives “awareness” and moves team from reactive to proactive Supports risk management Better utilization of costly resources “Visibility into the network that we never had.... It allows us to rearchitect to save money…to troubleshoot in real time” “Greater visibility into virtual environments helps us size our virtual server farm. It helps us buy less, reduce apex by looking at data flows between virtual servers…Let’s put these 5 apps over onto this physical server, virtualize and move this big app over there, and we don’t have to add another 10 blades. It helps us re-architect our compute engine, and that helps us delay increases to the server farm.”© 2012 IDC Aug-12
