There are many factors to consider when a technology vendor decides to pull the trigger on an acquisition. Things such as impact to channel, customer reaction, product rationalization and other issues must be thought out.

However, sometimes an acquisition seems to be a great fit and the decision is “black and white,” meaning it’s crystal clear with no shades of grey. This appears to have been the case for Extreme Networks, which earlier this week scooped up the wireless LAN (WLAN) business from Zebra Technologies for $55 million.

its portfolio to better align with SD-WAN, and its recent
announcements show it has come roaring back

The term “software-defined” has been applied to a number of technologies, including networking, WAN, security, storage and data center.

Earlier this year, I wrote about a startup called ZeroStack that lets customers easily build an OpenStack-based, plug-and-play private cloud. The company offers a turnkey solution that can be used in a private data center or in a colocation facility. ZeroStack customers can use the platform to move away from legacy virtualization platforms to a dynamic, standards-based cloud environment without requiring a bunch of OpenStack engineers.

The digital business era is highly competitive with companies looking for a way to one-up the competition. One way to do that is to gain new insights from data gathered from various systems.

A significant source of data that has been vastly underutilized is the network. Business today is network-centric, meaning companies should leverage network information to make better, more-informed decisions.
