New technologies such as SDN, cloud, and big data are designed to make managing networks easier, but they can also introduce a great deal of complexity in the process.
According to a new Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) survey of 250 enterprise networking professionals in North America and Europe, it is becoming increasingly complex to deliver applications and services, making network monitoring and management more critical than ever.
In the following infographic, Packet Design Inc. , which sponsored the survey, delves into the growth of networks and the challenges facing service providers as they consider the network management requirements of the cloud, SDN, and other major developments.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
