The IT world has gone acquisition bonkers. Dell is paying as much for EMC as any football club would do to secure the combined services of Messi and Ronaldo. Well almost...

Meantime, a couple of companies I keep tabs on have also been in acquisition...

Been doing a few catch-ups with old vendor friends recently; one was Brocade - and more of this next month - which has a REAL SDN/NFV story - and another was NetScout; networking monitoring!!!! Except that network monitoring now goes way beyond SNMP probes and...

I was at a Gartner event in Barcelona last week, where Computer Associates were playing host.


Not only was there the amusement of the excellent and straight-talking EMEA CTO Bjarne Rasmussen referencing Forrester several times at a Gartner event (especially amusing for my...

Been researching an article for CW's very own Cliff Saran while, by chance, also speaking with a number of IT investors - the research being on networking innovations; oh and, by another chance, also judging an awards event, networking category and also visited a Cambridge Wireless innovations...

IT and networking reinvents itself partially or wholly every few years, and here we are again now - distributed, virtualised, cloud (private and public) based, hybrid networks... So where does this leave traditional Network Management (NetMan) applications?

Every few...

Reinventing Network Management

Network management is the proverbial bus syndrome - nothing shows up forever and then there's a whole queue of them  - in this case interesting technologies, but here's the really interesting one I'm about to start testing with - Moogsoft.

Such was the count at the end of Day 1 of Netevents Portugal. Thirteen "paradigm's" and two "paradigm shifts". Surprisingly there were no "out of the boxes" and only one "granularity" reference.
