WAN optimisation vendor given “visionary” placement
WAN Governance and optimisation firm Ipanema Technologies has received a boost with the announcement that it has been positioned in the visionaries section of analyst house Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimisation Controllers.
The news comes after a busy 2010 for the Paris-based firm. In April it launched its Hybrid Network Unification platform, an automated monitoring and control system for networks.
"In 2010, Ipanema achieved tremendous success with our customers and partners. This is a direct result of our commitment to innovation and customer focus," said Jean-Yves Leclerc, chairman and CEO of Ipanema Technologies. "We believe our placement in the Visionary quadrant is an important milestone recognising the vision of the next generation of network infrastructure and services that are tightly coupled to enterprises’ IT and business needs, and Ipanema’s unique way to address them through WAN Governance and autonomic networking."
"Today’s ever-changing technology landscape, from the rapidly increasing adoption of cloud computing to the growing complexity within IT operations is driving the need for more intelligent solutions to dynamically align global networks with IT transformation and business priorities. WAN Governance, a strategic and business-driven approach to network management within IT Governance, will become even more critical for executives to achieve their business goals," Leclerc added.
Ipanema’s customers include Aviva, Barclays, Virgin Atlantic and DHL.
