BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- Verizon and SevOne are joining forces to deliver added levels of visibility into the performance of Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD WAN) services. With these new capabilities, Verizon’s enterprise clients benefit from a singular view that spans multi-vendor technology without the burden of managing disparate monitoring systems.

Using an integrated Web interface, enterprise clients gain an end-to-end view of services spanning the physical and virtual network. IT professionals can:

  • Analyze performance of the hybrid WAN to help enhance delivery of applications to users.
  • Correlate disparate metrics into a single-services view spanning the SD WAN, application performance and the supporting infrastructure.
  • Automate baseline performance metrics that drive predictive alerts on service performance.
  • Unify performance metrics across network, security and applications
  • Provide speed to intelligence at scale across the global enterprise footprint

Digital transformation simplifies, yet increases complexity

As more companies pursue digital transformation initiatives, they are looking to next-generation infrastructure such as software defined networking services to support their business goals and increase business agility. These new environments are more complex and difficult to scale, support and maintain. Many of the legacy infrastructure management tools cannot support these environments.

Management systems should be able to collect, visualize and analyze infrastructure to better understand what is happening, whom it is happening to, why it happened and how they experienced it.

"Companies are well into their journeys with next-generation virtualized environments to accelerate their businesses, yet many don’t have the required level of operational insight," said Jack Sweeney, CEO, SevOne. "The collaboration between SevOne and Verizon provides organizations with unprecedented business agility that allows them to proactively manage more of their digital infrastructure, visualize and report and troubleshoot quickly."

"Verizon's SD WAN portfolio is a major milestone in our company's multi-stage journey toward fully virtualizing the network and delivering virtual business services that help increase reliability, agility and efficiency," said Shawn Hakl, vice president of networking and innovation. "This initiative plays a major part in our overall enterprise digital transformation strategy, in which we are committed to helping clients accelerate innovation and maintain a competitive edge through simplified management and cost control."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
