Ipanema Technologies Positioned as a Visionary in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, the industry leader in network solutions allowing
enterprises to guarantee their application performance, today announced
it has been positioned for the fourth consecutive year in the
"Visionaries" quadrant of the 2014 Gartner's (News - Alert) "Magic
Quadrant for WAN Optimization". (Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for
WAN Optimization, Joe Skorupa, Bjarne Munch, March 27, 2014).
"Companies accelerate their push toward more efficiency and agility,
driving the take-up of unified communications and collaboration, SaaS (News - Alert),
public cloud and Big Data. Employee-driven BYOD, social media and video
are also promoting the public Internet within the enterprise.
Digitalization initiatives like zero-paper, real-time marketing, digital
signage and on-line experts increase the business performance dependency
on application performance.
Enterprise applications require more than classical acceleration. The
increasing complexity drives the shift from pure WAN Optimization
solutions towards solutions that provide full control of the rich
application portfolio in a hybrid environment" explained Jim
Darragh, CEO of Ipanema (News - Alert) Technologies.
<>Darragh continued, "At the same time, there is a strong
attraction from enterprises to outsource the management of this
increasingly complex application network. This drives a powerful trend
towards WAN Optimization Services (WOS) and multiplies opportunities for
Service Providers to expand their application aware services."
Darragh concluded, "At Ipanema, we've anticipated these trends
and leverage our technical foundations (autonomic networking and
objective-based performance management). Using our unique technology,
our ecosystem of global and local partners delivers added-value services
that provide global control and guarantee application performance over
large and complex enterprise networks."
