IT continues to change to address needs of businesses and employees. The consumerization of IT has uncoupled users from the desktop, and virtualization and cloud have added to the agility of servers. While the attention and appreciation of our often under-recognized industry is welcomed, for network administrators these new methodologies can add complexity while trying to monitor a corporate network.
