Due to the scale and real-time nature of business and IT services, it takes years for communications service providers (CSPs) and global enterprises to productize and launch services to market. Gaining a holistic view of the network is incredibly important, particularly as most organizations grapple with increasingly complex networks driven by the adoption of network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networks (SDN). And, as CSPs and large enterprise requirements differ from traditional enterprises, they need to partner with specialized vendors allowing them to cost-efficiently deploy their services.
We are thrilled to share that on March 6, 2014, InfoVista was recognized in the very first Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics. We believe our technology assessment reaffirms our position as the go-to vendor for CSPs and as a wise choice for many large enterprises, government organizations and managed service providers (MSPs). We have proven to help them meet their goals of offering customers a consistent quality of service (QoS), while allowing for the optimization of network costs, not only by managing multiple network technologies in parallel, but also by helping with rapid migration to the latest technology evolutions.
Our positioning in offering carrier-grade application and network performance management solutions has been further reinforced with the launch of multiple large-scale application visibility services such as Vodafone's Online Performance Reporting (OPR) and Telstra's application visibility and usage service.
Estimated to be worth $1 billion and growing, the network performance monitoring and diagnostic segment is an exciting one, and we look forward to continuing to improve and innovate in an effort to offer the best solutions to our customers.
