  • Forrester, “Is Software-Defined Networking Ready for the Enterprise? Part 1 of 3, March 5, 2014Empowered buyers: We are now in an era in which competition comes from new sources that are unexpected, fast-moving, and easily funded. Forrester believes that the next wave of competitive advantage will come from deep customer knowledge, engagement tied to the buyer's timing, and actions based on an obsessive desire to deliver what your customers want before your nearest competitor does. Forrester defines this as the age of the customer. Business-to-business (B2B) CMOs will need to drive customer intelligence into sales, service, support, and product development to create meaningful business-focused customer interactions that lead to greater levels of visible value tied to a consistent, distinct brand experience. 40% of US adults always addressable: They use 3+ connected devices, access the Internet multiple times per dayfrom multiple locations, one of which is on the go. They are also more exacting or more demanding than ever. Users expect web pages to load in under 2 seconds. 40% will abandon a site if page load time is >3 secsand a bad e-commerce experience reduces repeat purchases by 79%. These expectations spill over to employees, partners and suppliers.Staying competitive in the age of the customer requires deep customer knowledge, engagement tied to the buyer's timing and optimizing the customer experience.

  • IPv6. If you're moving to IPv6, it's likely for one of three reasons: 1) You're running out of private address space; 2) you're doing business in Asia or South America; or 3) you're under government mandate. IPv6 is much more of a management problem than an equipment problem. Large organizations may implement IPv6 to avoid exhausting their IP addresses, but it will be an operationally costly process because they will need to test all of their applications and devices to make sure that they're compatible with the new address scheme. Network staff will need to be prepared to manage this transition by understanding which elements of the network are likely to be affected and orchestrating a phased implementation to ensure minimal network interruptions. Phase II: WTA Analysis of IPv6 web apps(future)WTA will be able to analyze IPv6-based web apps Phase III: Analysis of IPv6-based traffic in optional ARX modules(future)CX-Tracer, AppSQL Xpert, and UCMM will support IPv6 analysis
