In a digitally transformed enterprise, IT organizations must be able to make frequent changes to the infrastructure that supports the critical business operations that drive revenue, productivity and innovation, and deliver exceptional customer experiences. This requires speed and agility as IT organizations are constantly deploying and scaling applications, as well as changes to underlying network infrastructure, to keep pace with the business’s needs.
Yet, too often, network infrastructure management activities are done manually. Application delivery, networking, and operation teams deploy and configure physical or virtual appliances and use command line interfaces (CLIs) to operate them. These manual processes can cause delays and introduce potential for costly errors that impact the business bottom line. Provisioning network resources becomes untenable as the network scales and diversifies, leading to more complexity, cost, and overhead.
To gain the speed and agility required to keep pace with fast-changing business needs, IT and networking organizations must focus on enabling network services automation.Get Guide
