hi,

would you rephrase the part I underlined? not sure even wha the subject is..

"Enterprises are increasingly deploying a mix of both in-house and cloud-based applications," said Joe Skorupa, research vice president, data center transformation, at Gartner. "As this shift to hybrid networks occurs, ensuring application performance and end-user productivity is critical, creating a need to integrate access to corporate applications, as well as SaaS, in a single pervasive framework."

Thank you,

It's quite concentrated.

All of the users within a given corporation must be able to conveniently use all of their needed applications without leaving the single framework.

I guess "pervasive" is like "ubiquitous" here. The single framework reaches into allthe applications - not to mention SaaS. Emotion: big smile

I'd say "integrated access" means about the same thing.

I suspect "platform" and "framework" are closely related here.
Hello Avangi,

Thank you for the explanation. I got the main idea of the sentence but would you tell me what the subject is? I think I understood what that means but can't see the structure of the sentence. It still looks broken.

Thank you in advance,

Sorry! I thought you meant the "subject" of Joe Skorupa's remarks! Emotion: big smile What the heck is he talking about!?Emotion: thinking

As shift occurs, ENSURING IS CRITICAL, creating need to integrate.

The "creating" phrase does not have a subject. The participial phrase modifies the main clause.

That is, it modifies the fact that "ensuring is critical."

As we move forward, doing X becomes more important, creating a new set of needs.

(The subject of the sentence is a gerund. But "creating" is a present participle.)
Thank you! sounds great!
