If you take a step back to think about it, isn't it mind-boggling the wealth of organizational functions for which the IT network plays a critical, if not the critical, role? In fact, the network has emerged as such as given, that stakeholders and users—the marketing teams launching product campaigns, the HR managers assessing hundreds of job candidates, the accounting department employees scrutinizing travel expense forms, and so on—probably take optimal performance for granted. As the CIO, of course, you can't take anything about network performance for granted. And that is why you need to stay on top of emerging tech developments that can significantly boost the way your tech employees provide network support, while saving dramatically on operating and hardware costs. To lend further insight, we're presenting the following nine top IT network trends. They are adapted from a number of online resources, including those posted by CDW and CommScope, addressing the impact of virtualization, IPv6, the Internet of Things, mobility and other driving influencers.
