Looking Back, Looking Forward: Alex Pepe (Senior Vice President and General Manager, NVS, Ixia) on Ixia Anue
What a great Q4! The addition and successful integration of Anue into the Ixia family continues to produce strong results. The Anue NTO visibility business benefitted from Ixia's broader global sales and marketing footprint, and began accelerating product development through access to Ixia’s extensive and rich technology portfolio. These benefits, combined with customer adoption of our recent product innovations, drove tremendous quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year growth. Customers are responding positively to our expansion and investments in the EMEA and APAC markets. Our development teams also accelerated the pace of innovation as we released:
- The AFM 16, which brought greater control and advanced capabilities to our customers
- The NTO release 3.7, which brought additional control over sensitive and time-critical traffic
We’ve continued to grow our successful technology partner program. Recent additions include Splunk, Compuware, IBM Tealeaf, and LogRhythm. We also grew our channel partner program with more strategic partners around the globe and working with them in such endeavors as educational seminars on emerging IT trends and fun, F1-themed, get-togethers.
We see continued excitement and evolution in the monitoring market with the recent acquisition of one of our technology partners (OPNET by Riverbed) and smaller competitors getting purchased by monitoring companies. Ixia Anue is part of one of the fastest growing technology segments, with a market that is easily increasing over 30% year-on-year – despite the global, macroeconomic challenges.
Based on publicly available information from competitors, we believe we are rapidly gaining market share. We’re achieving this success by doing what we always do – focus on developing and delivering best-in-class visibility solutions with world-class support for our customers.
