Executive Perspective
Daniel Adam, Chief Information Officer, Extreme Networks
"As we seek to deliver an effortless experience to our customers and partners, we've planned to implement ExtremeCloud IQ to manage our globally distributed network since we released it last year. With this initiative, we've finally reached that goal and did so in the middle of a pandemic. If that doesn't speak to the speed and simplicity of cloud to onboard and manage a distributed network, I don't know what does! We proudly use the solutions we sell, and with this deployment our employees, customers, and partners will experience firsthand the value of unlimited data and the benefits of a centrally managed cloud networking platform and end-to-end cloud-managed network."
