Click through for five trends that are affecting the way admins must monitor their network assets, as identified by Jim MacLeod of WildPackets.

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.

Some of the growing trends that we have seen in 2013 are BYOD, cloud migration and a continued growth in VoIP, which dives a bit into more technical territory. Accepting these trends while shifting your network monitoring strategy to accommodate them can be difficult. Jim MacLeod of WildPackets, an international provider of network monitoring tools and equipment, provides top trends in the IT industry, and how best to monitor your network while still enjoying the benefits of IT consumerization and virtualization.
