In a world of digital transformation, Enterprises are increasingly more dependent on technology and WAN connectivity for success. As Service Providers look to better meet Enterprise customer requirements, they may find that the lessons learned in a recent home computer project, just might help them to better support their Enterprise customers and simplify their network as well.
It recently struck me that SD-WAN might be going through its “horseless carriage” phase. When cars originally came out, they were marketed not as cars, but as horseless carriages. At times even with a dummy horse in the front of the car to manage the transition to car adoption, since initially the whole value chain could not wrap their heads around the idea of cars and their potential productivity.

In 2017, PwC conducted research with the primary objective of identifying what the major drivers in data center networking were. That research, made up of more than 250 responses from CIOs and IT leaders at large enterprises around the globe, suggested that the top priorities have shifted as IT charges towards cloud.
Previously, I had posted a blog about the results of PwC research about the changing design criteria for data center networking. Follow-on blogs detailed the insights gleaned from that research. Namely, security has risen to the top position in IT priorities for data center networking, and automation is firmly entrenched as the number two.
Based on these findings, it’s clear that IT is changing. But the question that remains is: how will all of these changes happen?
It is well understood that the technology that underpins the data center is changing. In fact, it’s not just changing—it’s accelerating. And that acceleration and change ultimately drives changes in how leaders think about how they design, build, and operate their infrastructure.
