Today’s Economic Environment Exacerbates the Demands on Network Administrators

• Headcount flat to decreasing

• Training budgets remain flat or continue to shrink • Technology investments must contribute to bottom line – Reduce operational costs – Improve productivity

• More devices to manage with fewer people

• Yet management’s expectations of IT are higher preso_CMS_public.ppt

8

Today’s Network Puts Increased Demands on Network Administrators • New Technologies to Support – Increased mix of data traffic – web, file server, email, CRM, ERP, etc. – IP Telephony – Videoconferencing – E-learning – Wireless connectivity

• Less Predictable Traffic Patterns – Mix of light, two-way communications and oneway bulk transfers – Delay-sensitive traffic mixed with delay-tolerant traffic

• Stronger Network Security – Increased flow of confidential info on the network – More sophisticated internal and external hackers preso_CMS_public.ppt

9

Value-Added Resellers Are Faced with the Same Challenges • Reduce operational costs by: – Deploying networks faster – Supporting more customers with less staff

• Improve revenues by developing expertise and entering new technology areas beyond data networking: – Voice – Videoconferencing – E-learning – Ongoing Support/Monitoring Contracts

• Deals are more competitive, driving the need to differentiate skills, capabilities • Customers looking for one-stop shop for technology solutions preso_CMS_public.ppt
