With the Networld+Interop 99 Spring show in full swing and with more than 50,000 networking professionals descending into the Nevada desert, does it seems that everyone is smiling? The reason could be job satisfaction, say the results of a recent a Web-based industry survey, hosted by International Network Services (INS).
According to the Sunnyvale, CA-based provider of network consulting and software products, two-thirds of network professionals are satisfied with their jobs overall. Although this finding is an improvement over 1998 when only 56% of network pros reported satisfaction with their employment situation, satisfaction levels of network professionals on a number of critical job factors do still lag.
The survey results detail a number of important trends:
INS network industry surveys conducted over the last 12 months have examined network and systems management total cost of ownership, network operation centers, performance management, virtual private networks, network security, service level management, and Web/Java-based management issues. INS provides professional services for the lifecycle of a network, including planning, design, implementation, operations, and optimization.
