11.6.2020 | Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire ThousandEyes
ThousandEyes to Enhance Cisco’s Network Performance and Monitoring Capabilities Across the Enterprise and Into the Cloud
The combination of Cisco’s expertise in network and application performance and ThousandEyes’ visibility into the Internet will provide customers with an end-to-end view into the digital delivery of applications and services
Common tooling and sharing datasets for application and network health will help remove silos, giving IT teams real-time visibility into application performance degradation issues
The last few years have seen a rapid acceleration of Cloud adoption, widespread use of SaaS applications, and a reliance on the Internet and networks outside of enterprise control. This increased dependence on the Internet and other third-party infrastructures, compounded over the past several months during the COVID-19 pandemic, substantially reduces the ability for enterprise IT teams to predict, visualize and control operational behavior. The result is often a chaotic and unmanageable IT environment that makes issue resolution a time-consuming ordeal that can potentially have a massive impact on customer experience, brand reputation and revenue.
