RISC Networks Launches Technology Analytics Services in Europe and Asia

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - RISC Networks is expanding its global operations for its business technology analytics services in Europe and Asia. The catalyst for expansion is an increase in global demand for RISC Networks services from partners such as Cisco Systems. Global analytics engagements will be delivered from Data Centers located in Ireland and Singapore.

"One of our major partners, Cisco Systems, and many of our enterprise clients are asking us to work with their operations in Europe and Asia, and now we can do that more easily," said Jeremy Littlejohn, chief analyst at RISC Networks, LLC. "Through our global infrastructure, we are able to meet theater specific requirements such as the European Union's strict data privacy laws."

RISC Networks does not sell network monitoring software or hardware. Instead the company uses its own proprietary Unified Correlation Engine Logic (UCEL) analytics software and RN100 advanced networking appliance to provide business technology analytics services.

"We provide services, not software, and that means fast, clear results for organizations trying to evaluate anything from network performance to readiness for new projects like Data Center consolidation and virtualization, Cloud Readiness, and Unified Communications," said Littlejohn.

RISC Networks fulfills a much needed service role in the IT industry, providing objective analytics and independent reporting to help guide clients in making strategic decisions to improve and optimize their IT Infrastructure. 

During an engagement, RISC Networks' clients quickly and easily deploy the RN100 advanced network appliance on premise, where it collects valuable information for analysis by RISC Networks' expert team. The RN100 Analytics Node performs a network discovery, fully mapping the infrastructure including all Windows devices, and then collects data to provide valuable network performance information. RISC Networks' engineers then use the company's proprietary Unified Correlation Engine Logic (UCEL) analytics software to correlate and analyze the data, identifying problems at the device and traffic path level and creating a "punch list" of prioritized network reliability, scalability and performance issues.
