Troubleshooting Branch Issues with NEW SteelCentral NetShark Virtual for SteelFusion Edge
As organizations get more distributed and the IT environment increasingly hybridized, it’s more important than ever to have visibility into the branch and other remote sites. Today, many site-to-site applications like VoIP or SaaS applications completely bypass traditional centralized monitoring in the data center and that means IT is essentially blind when problems happen. In the past, they’ve typically had to install smaller versions of dedicated monitoring appliances in the branch to get the visibility they need—an expensive and time-consuming proposition—or just go without....

Make Your Troubleshooting Routine Work for You
Or the Value of Troubleshooting Routines
If you’re like most people, you have a morning routine so you can get out the door by a specific time and beat the traffic. You take a quick shower, brush your teeth, then grab underwear and socks from the dresser and pants and a shirt from the closet, then eat in the car (bad, but you know we all do it). Whatever your routine, you have one and you probably don’t vary it much because it works for you....

SaaS: The dilemma of visibility and control
The shift to software as a service (SaaS) is the leading agent of change in application adoption as companies seek better business agility, quicker implementation, and a more frequent and less disruptive updating model.
Organizations have embraced SaaS; in fact, a whole generation of users has never loaded software onto a personal computer. It should come as no surprise that those same users carry their experiences and expectations into the workplace for everything from customer relationship tools like Salesforce.com to HR software like Workday.
The supply of SaaS solutions is increasing and will continue to do so at an ever increasing pace. According to Forrester Research (Application Adoption Trends: The Rise Of SaaS) SaaS spending accounts for the 23% of the application software budget. However, it grew a whopping 53% over the previous year (4Q 2012-4Q 2013). In addition to customer relationship management (CRM), SaaS adoption is strong in human resources management, collaboration tools, and e-procurement. Forrester is also seeing a dramatic increase in SaaS interest in business intelligence (BI) and several other application categories....
