The Three Vs of Network Performance Management in the Age of ‘Big Data’

At its most basic definition, “Big Data” is a term applied to data sets whose size is beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time.1 That definition perfectly describes why so many network operations teams are reactive rather than proactive, and also explains why the duration of their user-impacting events go on for too long – there is so much data to sift through that they can’t get the right data when they need it. This lack of timely data leads to damaged reputations, frustrated users, and lost business.

It also explains why discussions on so often focus on challenges posed by the three Vs – Volume, Variety, and Velocity.

What are the challenges that Big Data poses to network operations teams, and what can be done to move teams from a reactive mode to proactively managing network performance?

Using Speed at Scale to Ensure Network Infrastructure Performance for Financial Services

This whitepaper examines the ever-increasing need for speed at scale, proactive analysis, and higher levels of accessibility, granularity and visibility, as IT managers strive to ensure uptime and rapid response in business-critical networks and customer-facing networks.

In the financial services industry, failed trades and an inability to understand why they failed within a reasonable period of time not only frustrates users and management, but has a direct impact on the bottom line. The same is true in the retail banking and insurance industry when understanding the failure of online transactions. Every minute of downtime is well quantified, and financial services firms know exactly how much money they are losing whenever transactions fail. Moreover, poor performance in customer-facing applications can lead to high levels of churn. In either case, performance degradation results in lost revenue, and brand damage.

Addressing these issues end-to-end or at scale however, poses a multitude of challenges, given that performance is the sum of the delay imposed by the network (servers, middleware, storage), the communications infrastructure (local and wide area connectivity), and also the way in which the applications running over them are written.

Wi-Fi Enabled Healthcare

Different organizations and departments within the hospital often mandate the wireless medical devices to purchase. In order to avoid a chaotic situation, they must be required to utilize risk management techniques and to thoroughly test each and every device that is being proposed for deployment on the Wi-Fi network. If any of the devices cannot meet minimal security requirements, they need to be identified. The shared experience and lessons learned from the authors provide essential guidance for large and small healthcare organizations in the United States and globally.
