MARKETING HEAVYWEIGHT HITS INDUSTRY APATHY HEAD ON Wednesday 25 April 2001 PDF Print Koby Amedume, a specialist in marketing firms in ‘unsung’ areas of the IT industry, has been hired as vice president of global marketing by Chevin, the leading network optimisation and management software vendor. Amedume’s experience lies mostly in storage area networking (SAN) technology and high technology industries. His most pressing task is, he claims, ‘to make Chevin stand out in what is an incredibly important yet widely under estimated area within IT.” Chevin makes TeVISTA, a next generation network management system that has revolutionised mid size to large companies’ networks. Network management systems, while hugely important, are often regarded by IT managers as an afterthought. However, as network intelligence grows so does the need to keep it free of bandwidth problems or overloading – both problems TeVISTA predetermines, saving users money while keeping essential or mission-critical services available. “Network management traffic often accounts for as much as 70 percent of overall traffic,” states Amedume. “That is frankly unacceptable in modern mission critical networks and represents a significant drain on resources for what should essentially be a ‘quality performance tool’. I see it as my task to draw the IT world’s attention to this fairly astounding statistic, and show how TeVISTA reduces this overhead to almost nothing.” Chevin considers apathy to be the greatest danger to network management’s wider acceptance as a ‘must do’ issue for IT managers and directors. Chevin CEO, John Earley, says: “Koby Amedume is ideal for this task. He’s a big hitter with great vision. He’ll get us the attention I think this part of the industry needs. Chevin’s got a great story to tell and Koby will tell it plainly, simply and forcefully.” ABOUT CHEVIN Chevin is a leading provider of innovative software systems that enable organizations to manage and optimize their mission-critical networks.
