Recently, Riverbed has been evangelizing the vision of "location independent computing" (LIC). The concept of LIC is something I agree with -- computing isn't just in the cloud or in a data center, it's everywhere.

Riverbed's AppInternals, combined with the company's NPM platform, should give IT departments the necessary visibility and data required to manage this ever-changing application environment.
