In a quick interaction with SmartTechie, Alamuri Sitaramaiah, GM –Sales & Marketing, Fluke Networks talks about the rapidly changing Networks space and Fluke Network’s approach to the market and growing needs of the enterprises.

1. What are the trends driving the networking space today?

Increasing Convergence of Data, VoIP and IP-Video applications is an all-encompassing trend. Further, there is an increasing realization to design and implement networks from an application performance and a user-experience perspective. In fact, even networking vendors are moving on to become more than supplying network-plumbing products – switches and routers - to supplying collaboration solutions that leverage underlying networks to enable enterprise’s business processes.

2. What are some of the top networking challenges face by organizations today?

Managements of enterprises are increasingly demanding ROI into investments made into IT Infrastructure and such ROI is being increasingly viewed on how well IT Infrastructure enabled business processes to lower transaction costs, increased customer satisfaction and reach out to customers 24 x 7. Network Managers are hence increasingly called upon to ensure not only the uptime of IT Infrastructure but also on user experience of enterprise applications delivered on the network. Uptime does not assure performance. Hence, network managers are not only being challenged to manage user experience, but to continually improve upon the same as well as reduce mean-time-to-react to problems by managing such issues more proactively.
