Network Performance refers to the level of quality of service of a telecommunications product as seen by the customer. It should not be seen merely as an attempt to get "more through" the network. Performance can also be modelled instead of measured; one example of this is using state transition diagrams to model queuing performance in a circuit-switched network.

While marketers usually look first to customer facing applications when making technology acquisitions, taking into account the entire marketing value chain--from strategic brief to a personalized communication--is the best way to look at achieving marketing ROI.

In good economic times, success simply means keeping pace. After all, the market is demanding your company’s products and services, and your responsibility is simple: keep up with the demand no matter what it takes. Most managers, whether they are business managers or technology managers respond to this situation the same way. They hire more people to shoulder the increased load. Sales managers seek out more sales reps. Foremen bring more assembly workers online. Customer service beefs up the call center. And IT managers hire more administrators to maintain the constant flux of demands from users, applications, systems, and networks.
