WALTHAM, Massachusetts, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
David White, Ipanema's President, North American Operations, to Participate in Panel Discussion on "Redesigning Corporate WANs"
Ipanema Technologies, the industry leader in application performance solutions for business efficiency - today announced that David White, its recently named President of North American Operations, will be participating in a panel discussion at the Interop 2012 exhibition and conference, which takes place in Las Vegas, May 6-10, 2012. White will be among a select group of industry experts, led by industry authority, Dr. Jim Metzler, who will address the topic of "Redesigning your WAN." The session will take place at the Mandalay Bay on Wed., May 9, 2012 from 10:15-11:15 a.m.
The panel will discuss the most promising emerging WAN technologies and services that are addressing the challenges stemming from IT transformations and cost reduction constraints (new uses based on Internet, Unified Communications, SaaS applications, Hybrid Networks, consolidation of applications and servers from branch offices into centralized data centers, etc.). The perfect quality and stability of the experience is critical for end-users' productivity, day-to-day satisfaction and finally the business. At this end, guaranteeing performance for each business application is increasingly difficult because of the dynamicity and variety of the applications that run over the network (ERP, Unified Communications, desktop virtualization, file transfers, Internet, etc.) as well as the complexity of the delivery (on-premise, cloud, hosting, peer-to-peer, etc.). The growing budget constraints that IT departments are facing do not help, either.
"Ipanema is taking steps in North America to address the growing need for guaranteed application performance across today's global enterprise networks -- an ever-changing technology landscape, made even more challenging by the adoption of cloud computing and increasing complexity within IT operations," said White. "Ipanema's business-driven WAN Governance approach reduces network complexity and enables enterprises to align IT performance with business objectives. Ipanema protects existing IT investments, enabling customers to manage their networks at much higher levels of performance with lower costs."
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Jim Metzler, Vice President of Aston Metzler Associates. Dr. Metzler is widely recognized as an authority on both network technology and its business applications.
"While the WAN has always been important, its importance is increasing dramatically as IT organizations use it to support a significant increase in the deployment of bandwidth hungry applications such as video and to connect enterprise users to cloud computing solutions. Ipanema is one of the companies that is driving significant innovation in the WAN and so I am very pleased to have them join my Interop panel entitled 'Redesigning the WAN,' said Dr. Jim Metzler.
