What to Expect During the First Annual Solutions Review Networks Insight Jam


What is the Networks Insight Jam?

The Solutions Review Networks Jam is a network hardware and software community web event taking place on December 17th, 2020. Solutions Review editors are bringing the best and brightest minds in the industry together for a one-day social media gathering under the hashtag #NETWORKSInsightJam. Participants will include industry analysts, experts, influencers, authors, practitioners, and hardware/software solution providers. We’ve gathered network hardware vendors, network security professionals, industry leaders in network automation, and more to deliver their insights into the network technology space.

Join the Largest Network Hardware/Software Buyer and Practitioner Community

Solutions Review is one of the largest buyer and practitioner communities on the web. Our Universe of Influence reaches more than 4 million business and IT decision-makers, as well as C-suite and other top management professionals. Our readers primarily use us as an enterprise technology news source and trusted resource for solving some of their most complex problems.

Our collection of vendor-agnostic buyer’s resources help network hardware/software buyers and practitioners during the research and discovery phase of a buying cycle. This critical stage of information gathering is where buyers narrow down the field of solution providers to a short-list they plan to engage. The mission of Solutions Review is to make it easier for buyers of network performance monitoring software to connect with the best providers.
