About this talk

Three seasoned experts share what they’ve learned through real-life experiences dealing with the uncertainty sparked by a vendor you use being acquired or their product going end-of-sale. We’ve all experienced that twinge of concern when we hear that a critical piece of our architecture has been end-of-life’d. Or when the vendor for a product upon which we heavily depend has been acquired. What do I have to worry about? After all, I don't know what I don't know. What can I expect? Who can help me? Fortunately, our panel of experts have conquered these exact challenges and have over 100-years of real-world advice to share. Join us as Martyn Crew, Gigamon’s Director of Industry Solutions, hosts a video panel discussion with fellow Gigamon experts: Ian Farquhar, Jim Mandelson and Mike Valladao. What you’ll learn: • What are your options in an acquisition or end-of-life situation? • How does this really impact you operationally? • Best-practices for evaluating replacement options
