Connectivity. Performance. Reliability. Flexibility. These are the kinds of things CIOs, technology executives, and IT professionals talk about when the subject is enterprise networking.
And those are the sorts of things we're talking about at Enterprise Conversation, an online community for IT decision makers looking to derive the greatest value and highest levels of innovation from their technology and infrastructure investments. Whether it's high-speed switching and routing, unified communications, collaborative applications, network management, wireless networking, or security, Enterprise Conversation has its finger on the pulse of enterprise technology's latest trends and challenges.
The nature of networking seems to be constant expansion -- enterprise networks are either extending their reach (the factory floor, a newly acquired business unit, a patient's bedside), or getting called on to handle more strategic tasks (run financial performance reports, integrate multimedia information, lock down all fixed and wireless access points).
For most IT professionals and the users they support, performance and response times are only as good as the last upgrade or supplemental buildout. So any company that can consistently make apps run more smoothly, keep servers up and online, or shape traffic loads during peak demand hours is going to have an edge over the best-effort approaches of some enterprise networks.
Enterprise Conversation features daily blogs from the smartest voices in networking and communications, all manner of message boards for sharing thoughts among peers, and live chats with industry experts, site contributors, and newsmakers.
