Keysight World Delivers A Day of Presentations Showcasing Two IT Trends That Will Affect You in 2019

August 20, 2019 by Keith Bromley

During early spring and summer 2019, Keysight (Ixia’s parent company) hosted a serious of technical seminars talking about key trends in the industry to help our customers. Businesses must obviously react to the plethora of rapidly changing technological infrastructure and cyber security threats that are emerging and disappearing without warning. Some trends are merely fads while others will have important ramifications. So, which ones are fads? More importantly, how do you get a clear view into the most important areas so you can focus your business. How you respond to these shifts will dictate whether your business will thrive (not just survive) in this new environment.

The obvious answer is to sort the wheat from the chaff when it comes to these trends. This will help identify what the most important trends (i.e. the shifts) are for your organization and give you that clarity of vision. To this end, Ixia conducted research into key near term trends that could be impactful to the enterprise. We found that there are two key IT trends that will/are affecting enterprises in 2019 and 2020.

That data is summarized in the following presentations.

IT Trends That Will Affect You in 2019 As businesses remain under pressure to stay competitive, they must react to the rapidly changing technological infrastructure and cyber security threats that are emerging and disappearing without warning. Some trends are merely fads while others will have important ramifications. This session will give you a clear overview of the most important areas to focus on in your business along with how to thrive (not just survive) in the new environment.

Shift Happens Make New IT Changes Work For You Recognizing that a market place shift has occurred is one thing, but how do you actually make it work for you? How do you harness the power within that shift? This session will show exactly how to do this. You will acquire a deeper understanding of how to apply the shifts in 2019 to optimize network security, maximize network performance, reduce your costs, and offer new revenue generating services.

How to Respond to the Shift From Cloud Computing to Edge Computing There has been significant interest in core (cloud) computing in the last year. However, bandwidth consumption increases due to IoT, rising costs for cloud networks due to unplanned costs that are now being revealed, and higher data transmission costs as the amount of network data increases are creating a shift from core network computing to edge of the network computing. See how you can these mitigate problems and increase your network visibility.

TLS 1.3 Will Affect Your Whole Network The adoption of the newest version of TLS, version 1.3, is a true game changer. If you are doing any kind of data decryption (or even thinking about it), learn how the newest version of this protocol will affect your whole network and make you re-engineer your security decryption practices.

SD-WAN – The Next Phase of SDN? SD-WAN deployments are on track to grow 40% over the next four years. Learn why you should be deploying this technology and the pitfalls that most people are facing. Specific use cases will show you how you can optimize the performance of your SD-WAN deployments.
