Recently, IDC published a report called “Cloud Management Powers the Branch Network of the Future”, expressing how the enterprise is becoming more mission critical due to digital transformation. Digital transformation is where organizations leverage digital technologies to achieve disruptive changes. To transform, organizations rely on the network as the backbone for operations and innovation.
Thanks to soaring cloud adoption, today’s branch network now requires public cloud security, and their networking capabilities to be consistent with headquarters, but any solution must be easy to deploy and manage. Today’s branch network needs a cloud-managed, software-enabled converged networking solution that’s easy to deploy, provision, and manage, and is optimized for a blend of public and private cloud applications. They also need cost-effective connectivity and bandwidth for access to SaaS applications.
