Ipanema Positioned as a Visionary in Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization

PARIS, France and HERNDON, Virginia – March 31, 2015 – InfoVista, the global leader of network performance orchestration software solutions, today announced that Ipanema, they company’s Application Performance Guarantee solution,  has been positioned for the fifth consecutive year in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the 2015 Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization”. (Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization, Bjarne Munch, Neil Rickard March 17, 2015).

In our hyper-connected world where users can consume IT and apps as they please, the volume of data running over the corporate network increases exponentially. The main challenge facing IT departments in 2015 will be trying to do more with the same resources, making sure business productivity and end-users satisfaction are guaranteed while avoiding costs explosion. The increasing complexity and application velocity drive the shift from pure WAN Optimization solutions towards fully automated, business-centric and global solutions to control application performance across hybrid networks, making sure business applications are protected against recreational others.

At the same time, there is a strong attraction from enterprises to outsource the management of this increasingly complex application network. This drives a powerful trend towards WAN Optimization Services (WOS) and multiplies opportunities for Service Providers to expand their application aware services.

 “The network is the key enabler of every business, connecting applications, business processes, devices and people. The key IT challenge is connecting people to technology and applications, and making them more successful by delivering excellent user experience in this hyper-connected world” explained Matthieu Silbermann, Product Management Director, Ipanema solutions, at InfoVista. “We’ve anticipated these trends and leverage our technical foundations, namely our fully automated and objective-based performance management platform. Using our unique comprehensive solutions, our ecosystem of global and local partners delivers application aware added-value services providing global control and application performance guarantee over large and complex enterprise networks.”
