2 About TheInfoPro Networking Study TheInfoPro s Networking Study takes an in-depth look at key industry trends and tracks the performance of individual vendors. Now in its eighth year, this study was finalized in July 2013 and is based on 155 interviews. TheInfoPro s methodology uses extensive interviews with a proprietary network of IT professionals and key decision-makers at large and midsize enterprises. Each interview explores several fundamental areas, including the implementation and spending plans for technologies, evaluations of vendors observed from business and product perspectives, macro IT influences transforming the sector, and factors affecting decision processes. Results are collated into comprehensive research reports providing business intelligence in the form of technological roadmaps, budget trends and vendor spending plans and performance ratings. Examples of Vendors Covered in the Study AT&T AirWatch Arista Networks Aruba Networks Blue Coat Systems Brocade Cisco Systems Dell F5 Networks Fortinet Hewlett-Packard IBM Juniper Networks Meru Networks About the Author Microsoft Palo Alto Networks Polycom Riverbed Technology SolarWinds Splunk Verizon This report was written by Daniel Kennedy, Research Director for Networking and Information Security.
