Delivering Visibility with Forrester Research and Gigamon

Guest speaker Andre Kindness from Forrester Research and Shehzad Merchant from Gigamon discuss today’s top IT challenge around delivering visibility.

Organizations are starting to change the way they design networks as a result of trends like BYOD, virtualization of the server environment, and the utilization of cloud solutions. These trends and the associated architectural changes are creating enormously complex visibility and manageability issues. The following topics are discussed:
• The effect that convergence of these trends is having on visibility and manageability; why the old method of monitoring is breaking down and how a Visibility Fabric™ can help.
• How a Visibility Fabric works, the benefits it can offer to your monitoring, performance, and security tools, as well as why customers need visibility in order to be more responsive to meet the needs of the business.
• The practical components of visibility across next-generation architectures like SDN, network and server virtualization, and how the Visibility Fabric can help address those needs.
