RISC Networks to Deliver State of the Network Report at ITPX Conference

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - RISC Networks has announced that it will be participating in the upcoming ITPX Conference at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. RISC will deliver a presentation aimed at providing valuable insight to government bodies to help gain insight on where their network stands in relation to their competition and find out how others are using analytic data to solve problems, reduce risk and improve ROI. Jeremy Littlejohn, chief analyst for the firm, an analytics provider to Cisco and IBM, will present his "State of the Network Report: Analytic Data versus Surveys in Predicting the Real Trends in IT" at the 4:00 P.M. slot on Wednesday, April 13th 2011.

RISC Networks fulfills a much needed service role for the government and public sector, providing objective analytics and independent reporting to help guide clients in making strategic decisions to improve and optimize supporting IT services. 

Networking, unified communications, voice and video over IP and telepresence are all strategic technologies that enable organizations to compete more effectively and increase the productivity of their workforces. But many have come to realize that maximizing performance and achieving an ROI on their business technology is an uphill struggle.

Drawing from actual statistics gathered in thousands of analytics engagements on real IT infrastructures, Jeremy Littlejohn's session will provide a wealth of useful information on what is really happening in networks across the country and around the world. With this data, IT executives and network managers can compare themselves against their peers and industry best practices, find out if their issues are unique and learn how others are using analytics to improve their existing infrastructure.

"RISC has undertaken thousands of analytics engagements over the years, through which we have developed significant insight into what government and public sector institutions can achieve through more effective use of their business technology," said Jeremy Littlejohn, chief analyst at RISC Networks, Inc. "For our session at ITPX, we will be drawing on the full depth of our analytics resources to prepare a must-see event for anyone in government who is involved in managing IT infrastructures, or considering a UC implementation or other network upgrades, and wondering how analytic data can be employed to help them effectively adapt in a fast-changing IT environment."
