Hello and welcome!

Hello and welcome to the ACG Network Analytics Blog!

I lead ACG’s analyst and consulting practice in network visibility & analytics, which covers a wide array of use cases for gaining real-time, actionable operational and business intelligence, such as root cause analysis, service assurance, digital experience, cyber security, network automation, optimization, data monetization and IoT.

I focus on the salient business and technology trends in three interrelated markets: telecom services, cloud-scale services, and enterprise IT. My research encompasses visibility and analytics from the network edge to the core to the cloud across each of these domains, including the full stack of software-driven infrastructure for cloud-scale application and service delivery.
