Network Optimisation: How can you manage what you can’t see?November 17th, 2015 by Open Reality
Whenever you take a management training course the phrase “you can’t manage what you can’t measure” pops up; at least it does for me. In network optimisation and application performance we find this to be true time and again. You can’t manage for improvement if you don’t measure to see what is getting better and what isn’t. In the IT environment this is even more pertinent as it can be hard to see what you need to; you need visibility of network traffic in order to measure and then manage performance and improvement.
Many organisations don’t have satisfactory visibility of network traffic and as more medium sized business are starting to put an increasing number of applications and data in the cloud they run the risk of blocking their Internet connection – and then probably spending money on increasing its size. Visibility and management is key to maintaining great application performance and it will save you money in the long run.
