About Ipanema Technologies
We live in an age where businesses are constantly battling to become more efficient, and increase output whilst minimizing costs. It’s a ruthless arena, and CIOs are consistently looking towards IT as a key enabler, and one which will give them an edge.
IT solutions and innovations are embedded into everyday business functions. Desktop virtualization, cloud applications, BYOD, social media and unified communications are just a few examples of IT functions which companies rely upon on an everyday basis. All of these apps or services are offered to the user via private or public networks, and it’s the network therefore which needs to bear the brunt of the strain. Inefficient network = inefficient business performance.
The CIO needs to guarantee the performance and success of the entire application portfolio. After all, who wants to ensure good video quality at the price of a shaky SAP experience? Choosing is not an option. ERP, unified communications, cloud applications, virtual desktops, social media, video, telepresence, big data, mobility and BYOD: all contribute to business efficiency.
This is where Application Performance Guarantee comes into play. It allows businesses to guarantee each application’s performance at any time, and directly align the network with the enterprise’s business goals. When we talk with customers we stress four key reasons to consider an application performance guarantee approach:
- Increase business efficiency and therefore the experience employees receive by suppressing application performance ‘brownouts’
- Ensure the success of strategic IT projects thanks to the dynamic (self-learning and self-adapting) behavior of a system that adapts automatically to all traffic changes that occur
- Improve IT productivity by dramatically reducing application performance incident handling, lowering the ‘Mean Time To Innocence’ (MTTI) by drilling down into performance data to quickly identify the root cause of problems.
- Reduce IT infrastructure costs by tripling the potential of the current network without needing bandwidth upgrades, whilst reducing the amount of network governance undertaken by IT staff themselves.
WAN optimization tools are limited to simply increasing the efficiency of the data network and are unable to handle the increasingly sophisticated demands of hybrid networks, video traffic flows and cloud applications. The time has come to think differently, the time has come to go Beyond WAN optimization to guarantee application performance.
Ipanema helps enterprises to guarantee the application performance to each user whatever the IT complexity. CIOs recover control of their applications and dynamically adapt to new usages. They easily manage their strategic IT transformations including Unified Communications, SaaS and Cloud applications, they embrace social media and BYOD and take full advantage of their hybrid networks while reducing their IT expenses.
