  • Choosing the Best Approach for Monitoring Citrix User Experience Choosing the Best Approach for Monitoring Citrix User Experience Innovations Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations Recorded: Mar 9 2017 64 mins
    Choosing the Best Approach for Monitoring Citrix User Experience: Should You Monitor from the Network, Server or Client?

    A great user experience is key for the success of any Citrix application virtualization or desktop virtualization initiative. To ensure user satisfaction and productivity, Citrix administrators should monitor the user experience proactively, detect times when users are likely to be seeing slowness, pinpoint the cause of such issues and initiate corrective actions to quickly resolve issues, thereby ensuring user satisfaction and productivity.

    A key question is where should the monitoring of the Citrix infrastructure be performed from - the network, the server infrastructure, or from the client?

    In this webinar you will:

    Learn about the different approaches to Citrix user experience monitoring, their benefits and shortcomings
    Hear about a hybrid approach that provides the most cost-effective yet comprehensive monitoring for a Citrix server farm
    See a live demonstration of the hybrid Citrix monitoring approach and its ability to cover all aspects of Citrix user experience

  • The Global Expansion of 5G: Network Connectivity Appears in Emerging Markets The Global Expansion of 5G: Network Connectivity Appears in Emerging Markets Wally Swain, Ken Rehbehn Recorded: Mar 9 2017 71 mins
    Going into this year’s Mobile World Congress, it is easy to predict that 5G will be the hottest topic of conversation. Targeting revolutionary use cases beyond the reach of LTE, 5G presents opportunity and challenge. But while pre-commercial trials in South Korea, Japan and Russia get the headlines, decision-makers planning for network investment must ask hard questions. When will these technologies come to emerging markets like Latin America? Do emerging markets users need the firepower that 5G promises? Why would operators spend money on 5G if they have not yet realized all their investments in 4G? How does LTE Advanced Pro play into the 5G timeline?

    Join 451 Research analysts Wally Swain and Ken Rehbehn as they debate the impact and timing of these new wireless ultra-broadband technologies across the globe.

  • Performance Management for Cloud-based applications Performance Management for Cloud-based applications Nicolas Leszczynski, Senior APM Solution Specialist Riverbed Apr 19 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Cloud. Elastic computing. Containers. Microservices. Shared Libraries. These technologies are being adopted at almost exponential rates since they greatly simplify application design, development, deployment and manageability.

    Unfortunately, that surface-level simplicity comes with the price of dramatically more complex under-the-covers behaviors and relationships. Application topology is often transient, nebulous, and unpredictably interrelated with countless other applications and services. This has posed a serious challenge for performance management, since many tools and techniques are still rooted to static physical concepts like tiers, servers, and JVMs.

    There’s also been an expansion of the consumption of APM data, as LOB management and application owners look for more KPIs to help them improve the bottom line of the business. APM isn’t just a tool for developers and troubleshooters anymore.
