Recognizing Effective Leadership: Denise Arboleda

Denise Arboleda, Vice President of Compulink Technologies, has recently attended the Women of the Channel (WOTC) Leadership Summit East 2018.  This event took place on December 4-5, 2018.  WOTC Leadership Summit is an exclusive event where prominent and rising women business leaders in the IT Industry are invited to network, collaborate and find professional development opportunities.  We at Compulink Technologies are proud of Denise for this honor due to her genuine, diligent efforts to become the effective business leader she is today.

It is in this environment of collaborative business engagements where Denise is at her best.  Throughout the past thirty years, Denise has helped develop Compulink Technologies from a network cabling service to a full-fledged IT Solutions provider servicing agencies in the City, State, and Federal Government.   She has helped Compulink establish partnerships with leading IT manufacturers such as Cisco, Dell, HPE, HPI, F5, etc. and manages all these business relationships diligently.

In an interview with CRN, Denise said “We offer entire solutions designed by Compulink Technologies to the customer, which most of the time incorporates multiple manufacturer products.  That is the real value of what we bring to the table.”

It is through these connections that Denise and Compulink Technologies has been able to effectively package solutions from different manufacturers for large government agencies.  For example, Denise and Compulink Technologies assisted the New York MTA in obtaining GPS capabilities for all of their buses.  With the same client, Denise collaborated with both HP and Cisco systems to develop a solution package for tracking all MTA buses in the tristate area.

It comes as no surprise that Denise Arboleda is attending the WOTC Leadership Summit where she can develop and nurture more connections.  The guests, networking events, professional development trainings, and motivational speeches can only help enhance such talent as Denise’s in the IT industry.  More than business growth, it is Denise’s genuine commitment to quality service and adding value to clients that make this event exciting news.

When we asked Denise about her thoughts on this exclusive invitation, she answered, “It is an honor and a privilege to be considered a guest among such a talented list of women leaders.  Receiving these honors don’t come with ease and there are decades of hard work the Compulink team and I put into our business engagements with the government.  But while this is a great honor, the true question lies in how we can promote more collaboration between the business and government sector.”

From Compulink Technologies, we would like to congratulate Denise on all of her accomplishments and the genuine passion she brings to the table.  She has certainly earned her spot in the WOTC Leadership Summit.

SD-WAN solution essentials: Reliability, innovation and integration skills win

Business needs and enterprise reach are driving monumental shifts in the architecture of networks. Naturally, the SD-WAN vendor market has responded aggressively, knowing that by 2020 the space willbe worth more than six billion dollars, according to IDC. Choices are vast and include offerings from tried and true large networking vendors, focused WAN specialists and venture-funded startups.
We know SD-WAN technology is an effective and economical solution that addresses goals for agility, speed, security. Understanding your enterprise needs will help lead you to the optimal vendor. As
important as unique case scenarios is the assurance that a vendor partner will not disrupt the current WAN scenario as SD-WAN installation is in process and building an SD-WAN that can securely carry cloud demands.

The three main vendor types are:
1. Controller-based solutions
2. Appliance based overlay solutions that create a virtual IP network between vendors hardware across any network
3. Advanced automation and change control solutions using existing hardware

One reputable player cited in a Packet Pushers blog post written by Ethan Banks expounds on NetScaler (Citrix’s skin in the game), which features, “…treating multiple WAN circuits as a unified pool of bandwidth, centralized reporting, and integrated WAN optimization. The product “appears to be the real deal,” he said. NetScaler was also cited in Network Computing’s 12 Sizzling SD-WAN Vendors. Network World offers four considerations to help prepare you as you explore SD-WAN solution that is right for your business.

1. Automated management – The impact of automation on deployment and management costs =training and staffing. IT organizations should ask vendors how they minimize the cost and effort of
“Day 2” operations management such as policy changes, adding new applications, security and image updates
2. Route control – Without proper route control, business critical applications running on the WAN may not get the bandwidth, priority and load balancing needed for the best user experience.
Ideally, application traffic utilizes all available WAN circuits and bandwidth to make best use of and IT department’s existing WAN infrastructure, by load balancing across WAN circuits and utilizing
backup edge routers
3. Proactive – consider a solution’s ability to detect problems and respond to network outages so that critical applications don’t experience loss of service. Looking at the management tools of a
solution can provide insight into IT management
4. Support for hybrid deployments – Can the solution support hybrid deployments by combining multiple WAN transports such as MPLS, Internet, cellular or satellite links? Each has different
capabilities in areas such as bandwidth, SLA classes of service, security postures, and pricing

We know your choices are plentiful. After you’ve reviewed and prioritized against the needs of your business, next consider a checklist of vendor fundamentals where technological prowess, customer
service and agility in implementation are all of equal value.

Cisco will Acquire Skyport Systems

There is a new development in the ever growing information technology arms race. Cisco has announced it will acquire Skyport Systems Inc. Skyport Systems was a privately-held company that provided cloud-managed, hyper-converged systems that run and protect business-critical applications. Now the Skyport team will be absorbed into the Data Center – Computing Systems Product Group and Service Provider – Networking Group.

As the big names in information technology continue their arms race in innovation, more and more acquisitions and mergers will happen in the industry. Whether or not that is good overall of buyers will remain to be seen. A little fun fact was that Cisco was a big investor of Skyport Systems in the beginning.

As a Cisco partner we are excited about the acquisition and to see the new innovations that come from it. The IT industry is very competitive and when a manufacturers leads in innovation, it does trickle down to the resellers. It give us something new and exciting to bring to our customers and potential customers.
