At this time, not a lot of people are optimistic that the current dire conditions will be turning around anytime before the end of the year.In answer to that, let's twist the topic around for a minute: What do you think probably won't be happening in 2009, thanks to these recessionary times? Michael Jannery, president and CEO of Entuity, has his own views on this question. Entuity is a UK-based provider of IT management software and services that deliver better control within a network. Its flagship product, Eye of the Storm (EYE), automates the discovery of network infrastructure inventory and connectivity to maintain an up-to-date knowledge base of the network from the core to the edge.
