I remember writing a column for a long since deceased IT publication, where I was discussing the rebirth of the mainframe as a network server, I remember it, not simply for the content, but more specifically the context, and how the sub-editors, in the name of...

Trouble-Ticketing – The Future Is Here!

IT doesn't so much go round in circles as overlapping rings - think the Olympic sign. That's to say, it does repeat itself but with additions and a slightly changed working environment each time.


So, for the past few decades we've had good old Helpdesk, Trouble-Ticketing and...

So here we are, already several weeks into 2013 and is there anything new to report on the networking front?


Not really - currently the same stories as we've been hearing for the past year or two - SDN, Cloud etc.... I am, at least, about to put some element of cloud to the...

Paradigm 13 Shift 2 SDN (lost count)

Steve Broadhead Steve Broadhead Profile: Steve Broadhead

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. It should also be noted that the "p" word" was used by at least four different nationalities, so it's...

IT Is Prawn Cocktail ?

Bem Vindo from the Algarve, at the latest Netevents symposium.


One of my favourite topics in networking (and IT in general) is how often we revisit old "recipes". In the same way that prawn cocktail has become trendy again, so it is with networking and Netevents. Two panel...

And Yet More SDN…

I don't think I can remember a time - and this is saying something - when there were SO many hyper buzz-phrases in IT circulation as there are currently. Every cloud variant, Big Data, SDN...


So it's good for the system, soul and sensibility to get behind the hype and see what...

Live from the home of tack - i.e. Vegas, the Blackpool of the desert but without the classiness...or piers - is the latest bombardment of SDN, er, ness, care of Interop 2012.
