Hi, I am an editor for SearchNetworking.com and I am looking for some insight into how networking professionals approach their jobs and the technology they work with.
I read an article yesterday about the "commoditization" of the network. Do you feel that the network is being commoditized? In your job, is there less focus on nuts-and-bolts networking and more on the specific applications or services the network delivers? If so, what are those applications?
Does your company have a different view than you do? Perhaps you are focused on the network on a daily basis, but your IT executives have different priorities?
Thanks for your time -- any and all ideas and experiences are appreciated greatly! If you'd rather, feel free to respond to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
