MILPITAS, CALIF. May 3, 2016Aryaka®, the Software-Defined Network Platform provider, today announced that Nikesh Kalra, Senior Vice President, Business Development and Product Management at Aryaka, will be presenting on “SD-WAN: Why Application Performance Matters” on May 4, 2016 at 3 p.m. at Interop 2016 in Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Room J.

SD-WAN represents a fundamental shift in how networks are architected and managed. During the session, Kalra will focus on how increasing globalization and growth in cloud adoption are putting application performance at risk. SD-WANs do not address the application performance problem for global deployments due to their reliance on the public Internet. Kalra will discuss why application performance needs to be a major consideration when enterprises are looking to deploy SD-WAN.

With two decades of leadership experience in diverse functional areas including sales, marketing, product development, strategy, finance, and operations, Kalra is an authority on product innovation and business alliances that enhance the customer experience, drive partner engagement, and expand market reach.

Kalra will be joined by Aryaka customer, Venkat Kankipati, VP and Head of IT, Infrastructure and Customer Engineering at Augmedix.
