Many networking teams make the mistake of assuming that WAN Optimization management is a case of ‘set and forget’. So long as the management console reports optimization levels that appear positive, they believe their solution must be performing well enough to negate the need for daily tuning, so they focus time and effort elsewhere.
However, in any complex, global 24×7 network environment, user, data, and application priorities are changing every day, and the optimization levels displayed in reports often relate to outdated strategies. For example, one organization reported optimization levels of 80%, but because this was based on applications that were no longer viewed as critical, the solution was in fact delivering very little business value. Another organization was running an old version of software and was missing out on important features that would have delivered a crucial performance boost to their most important application. A global WAN Optimization strategy will fail unless the solution has constant attention from those qualified to know how to get the best out of it.
A managed service is the only sure way to deliver a successful, global WAN Optimization strategy. It provides the people, certified skills, and time to manage, tune and update your solution around the clock for optimum results and business impact.
With over 15 years of deep WAN Optimization expertise and experience, our services have been tried, tested and proven by many of the world’s leading organizations, including the Forbes Global 2000.
