    Comments Off on Don’t Buy an Integration Tool Without This Functionality

    Enterprises are buying integration solutions to combine new and old systems and simplify their IT environment. However they are recklessly embracing new technologies without evaluating the integration functionalities. Combining a highly convoluted legacy IT environment where a mix of cloud and on premise applications are running in parallel is not possible without any-to-any integration. Here are some benefits that you get with the tool.

    Makes You Easier to Do Business With: Plays a critical role in smoothing electronic data interchange with partners and clients. Leverages a no-code self service integration approach that reduces customer data on-boarding by 70%.

    Puts IT in a Governance Role: Provides a central platform where IT assumes a governance role and business users can handle operational load. Allows IT to focus on other important roles. IT teams can focus on building integration and business users can build integrations faster.

    Optimizes Resources and Lowers Cost: Delivers faster go to market capabilities that accelerate time to revenue. Drives down operational cost by 80% and increases profit margins by 20%. Less coding means less cost involved and improved time to revenue. Businesses can transact documents faster and lower the cost involved significantly.

    Foundational support to IT: Scales to address pervasive integration needs. The enterprise class integration solution handles any-to-any integration scenarios. It performs polyglot programming for combining systems. This means businesses can transact structured, unstructured files with top most integrity.

    Faster Data Deployment and Safer Data Exchange: Provides secure, end-to-end encrypted environment for all data that is transferred and exchanged between partners. Pre-built application connectors ensure secure electronic data interchange across hybrid IT environments.

  • How to Monitor 10G Links Using 1G Tools

    Comments Off on How to Monitor 10G Links Using 1G Tools

    While these numbers are relevant to larger businesses and corporations, smaller companies will also soon require such extensive bandwidth to manage daily IT and network operations. In preparation, vendors have begun to drive demand through the use of aggressive marketing and price reductions.

    With reduced prices on 10G equipment, many organizations are choosing to upgrade their bandwidth immediately for new technology purchases. After all, why purchase older, slower technology at comparable prices, when your organization can simply begin to prepare for the future now?

    THE CHALLENGE: MONITORING 10G Given the current state of the economy, network operations teams are being challenged to do “more with less,” a phrase that has become pervasive enough to take on the look of an industry theme of late. This trend is showing up in 2009 budget estimates, which are expected to fall by an average of 2.5% from 2008 levels, according to Gartner Research. In response, decision makers are forced to more thoroughly evaluate all capital purchase and make hard decisions about canceling / delaying some transactions.

    10G projects are not immune to the budget crunch. Although the cost of 10G equipment has come down recently, it is still selling at a premium to 1G tools. At the same time, enterprises are faced with the daunting task of monitoring 10G networks to ensure that their business critical applications are secure and running at acceptable performance.

    With the move to 10G, many IT strategists are concerned about whether they will need to upgrade the many different types of network and application monitoring tools that they have already purchased. These business critical tools include: application monitors, intrusion detection systems, compliance tools, data recorders, VOIP monitors, and protocol analyzers. Few organizations have the budget to upgrade some, let alone all of these tools.

    THE SOLUTION: TOOL AGGREGATION Imagine a world where you can use your 1G tools to monitor a 10G network. It can be done due to two important enablers:

    1. Most tools only need to see a small fraction of the network traffic to do their jobs. In fact, sending more data than is required actually degrades efficiency, because tools cannot keep up.
    2. Tool Aggregation, a new industry trend, enables traffic to be filtered and dynamically directed to the correct tools. With this technique, you can increase monitoring coverage and save money.

    Tool Aggregation enables traffic to be received at 10G bandwidths and filtered on Layer 2/3/4 criteria. In most cases, traffic from a 10G link can be reduced to 1G or less by filtering out data that a tool does not need to see, so your existing 1G tools can still be used. If the filtered traffic is over 1G, then operators can still use their 1G tools by load balancing the traffic to two 1G tools using Tool Aggregation. With proper filtering, multiple 10G links can be monitored with a single 1G tool in many cases.

    So exactly how should traffic be filtered? It depends on the tools you are using, the applications you are monitoring, and your business objectives. For example, a typical application performance monitoring tool only needs to see TCP traffic from the specific application ports that it is monitoring. Likewise most VOIP monitors only need to see certain protocols such as SIP, SCCP, and MGCP. Tools work most efficiently when they are sent only the specific traffic that each tool needs. Only then can 1G tools can be used to monitor 10G links.

    Anyone who joins MLM Lead System Pro from your recommendation will be put onto your team. They will then have access to all the same courses and marketing products which will be open to you. The big advantage of promoting MLM Lead System Pro is that you will also be promoting the education courses and affiliate products within the system. Therefore, commissions from these sales are paid directly to you… and rightly so!

    Join MLM Lead System Pro – Step 2

    After you have set up all of your affiliate accounts, you should then put in place your Auto-responder messages. I recommend that you take full benefit from the fact the system may be integrated with either an AWeber, or GetResponse account You PERSONALLY OWN. By loading your leads into your very own Auto-responder, you keep full ownership of your leads. This is critical, as you will discover at a later time!

    Don’t panic! If you don’t currently have your personal Auto-responder account or follow-up messages then you will be able to take advantage of the step-by-step tutorials in the back-office. By following your tutorials you’ll be shown the right way to create an account, as well as the way to preload all the follow-up messages that have been written for yourself by MLM Lead System Pro. These messages will promote the affiliate products with your personal affiliate links. These are the links that you set up in the first step.

    I actually do suggest you read and modify the follow-up messages when you get time, as you want to make sure that they fit your business as well as match your style of writing. Remember, you need your subscribers to get to know YOU!

    After getting your affiliate accounts and email Auto-responder set up, it’s time to construct your first campaign. I am not going to go into precisely how this is achieved, since there are tutorials inside the back-office that can cover this. Instead, I would like to provide some general pointers on what I’ve done to produce the best results.

    In my opinion the key with a successful campaign capture page, would be to customise the page fully to market yourself, your training and your business. Some of the capture pages provided inside the system may convert slightly better, but don’t forget your aim is to position yourself as an expert. Therefore, you’ll want to record your own video and modify the Headlines and text to suit your message. If you aren’t comfortable recording videos then get comfortable with it!

    To be serious though, if you prefer to not use video at this point then make use of your own pictures while using text formats, so that your message will be tailored to you personally and what you can offer.
