Upcoming Webinar on Network Visibility ROI

March 19, 2014 by Ixia Blog Team

Over the course of the next several years, there will be many places to optimize savings for IT. An increased network visibility solution will offer you one of your best opportunities because it allows your IT department to:

  • Reduce complexity
  • Decrease costs
  • Improve your business agility

The follow up question to this is “How can I validate these three benefits?” The simple answer is to determine the return on investment (ROI) on any network visibility proposal. A high ROI from your IT network solutions can be directly correlated to lower costs. Lower costs are come from reduced complexity (the converse is absolutely certain – high complexity will result in higher costs). Reduced complexity then can be leveraged to improve business agility.

Many companies are now taking advantage of network visibility solutions to improve their IT initiatives. The ROI for these solutions can definitely quantified in terms of standard metrics such as:

  • Mean time to repair (MTTR) reduction
  • CAPEX/OPEX reductions
  • Productivity improvements
  • Network uptime

Ixia is sponsoring an upcoming webinar that addresses ROI for network visibility solutions and how to quantify this. Ixia will be joined by guest Forrester’s Andre Kindness (Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc.) in an interactive webinar presentation and discussion on this topic.
