Applying network performance and optimization capabilities to a global network involves working around varying network types, carriers, platforms and other hurdles. This report looks at how one company addressed the challenge of bringing high-performing applications to their globally distributed offices and analyzes how strategies such as cloud or service-based performance optimization tools can help organizations meet the performance management challenge of the global enterprise.

Finally from Jim Rapoza,"Pushing Application Performance Optimization Past the Development Stage" looks at how many organizations take a developer-oriented approach to creating high performing and reliable applications. Aberdeen research has shown that many companies that focus on application optimization and acceleration in the development phase do not have the same level of commitment to ongoing performance management such as monitoring, problem resolution, and real-time optimization. This report addresses how some organizations take this developer-only focus on application acceleration, and analyzes the performance trends that are moving businesses towards managing all phases of application development, deployment, and maintenance.
