The future of network and application visibility


A virtual roundtable with AppDynamics and ThousandEyes

Everyone talks about the business impact of the pandemic, but what’s changed for IT organizations? Trends like work from home, digital transformation, and increased adoption of cloud and SaaS have put IT teams under increased pressure to deliver seamless digital experiences. But how can they manage digital experiences across so many service providers and networks outside of their control?

Join Linda Tong, General Manager, AppDynamics, and Mohit Lad, CEO, ThousandEyes, as they sit down with Zeus Kerravala (Founder and Principal Analyst at ZK Research) for a roundtable to discuss how IT can help ensure business continuity in this new digital era.
