The article presents a letter from the editor of "Business Communication" concerning the January 2007 issue. The issue features an article by Jim Metzler about WAN optimization and application acceleration, and why these technologies are expected to be extremely important in 2007. The article surveys end users about organizational issues surrounding application performance and found that it is often a lack of communication that diminishes productivity, rather than a failure in the technology used by a company.
