While network technology continues to evolve at a breakneck rate, the approach to network management hasn’t maintained the same pace. As a result, Infrastructure & Operations (I&O) teams often struggle to manage all of their enterprise’s network testing, provisioning, and incident resolution requirements.
If you think things will get easier on their own, think again: next-generation technologies like NFV, SD-WAN, IPv6, and 5G will spread the network wider–and I&O teams thinner. The time to take a modern approach to network management is now.
Yet remarkably, 65% of enterprise networking activities are still performed manually. Not only does this approach increase daily operational complexity, but it also makes it nearly impossible to react effectively when an outage hits. And in a digital world where connectivity is a necessity, an outage of even just a few minutes can be devastating.
In this eBook, we’ll explore the past and future of network management to help you understand how to incorporate network automation to keep pace with today’s technology.
- A brief history of how I&O teams have approached network management
- How to achieve the greatest value at the fastest rate
- Key features to look for in a network automation platform
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how automation can save you hundreds or even thousands of I&O hours a year – hours that can then be deployed toward innovation and high-value tasks.
