Steps to Take Before Deploying SD-WAN, 2019: The Year of Automation & Data Mining to Improve DevOps
Week of March 10, 2019
2019: The Year Of Automation?
The efficiency, dynamism, and rapid service delivery of today’s cloud titans is the envy of world business, but new research reveals that the same technologies are being eagerly embraced by cloud services, web scale enterprises and SaaS cloud network operators. The research report Cloud Network Automation Trends, released by Futuriom, focuses on the interest in and uptake of cloud network automation technologies. It provides a detailed analysis of cloud networking goals and challenges, and the technological components best suited for network automation.
AI-Enabled Network Automation Supports Milliseconds Response Time
Enterprises need to respond to network and security events in milliseconds, not seconds. Network automation coupled with artificial intelligence tools can help.
Three Steps To Take Before Deploying SD-WAN
As enterprises develop network strategies and technical roadmaps, one hot technology that will be on their radar is SD-WAN, a significant transformational solution in networking and a major change from the MPLS status quo that most enterprises have deployed. As bullish as we are on SD-WAN, we recommend that any enterprise contemplating its adoption take a few preliminary steps to minimize the disruption and costs associated with transitioning from the legacy network.
What Is Network Automation And Why Is It So Difficult?
Depending on which industry your business is in, you may have heard about network automation and why you should implement it in your business. However, what many people fail to mention is what network automation is and what it can do for your business when implemented effectively. Having said that, some people fail to mention how difficult it is, which ends up leaving many business owners with some questions; notably something like why is network automation so hard?
How To Use Process Data Mining To Improve DevOps
DevOps combines the information technology and software development teams and increases communication and collaboration between the two groups. With DevOps, then, it becomes possible to adopt an approach to project management that allows for shorter times between new versions of apps or other products. As such, DevOps encourages continual evolution brought about by team or client needs and feedback. Something called process data mining — analyzing large amounts of data about processes and taking action accordingly — could enhance DevOps practices in several ways. Here are five ways that leaders and IT professionals can apply process data mining to DevOps.
Network Automation Predictions in North America
North America dominates the network automation market due to the presence of large key players in this region. The advancements in recent technologies such as IoT, AI, and SD-WAN are projected to offer an ample number of opportunities to the key players in this market. Canada is projected to witness the highest market growth with a compound annual growth rate of more than 22 percent.
Streamlining The Supply Chain With Automation
We’ve seen the developments of Industry 4.0 through the establishment of smart factories, automated and digitized manufacturing processes and smart data. But how is Industry 4.0 impacting the supply chain? In today’s world, the supply chain is a hugely complex, multi-faceted ecosystem. As many of us know, it’s all too easy for one weak link to break this chain and completely shut down the entire manufacturing process. In a world where digitization and automation are completely transforming traditional processes from the very core, the supply chain can hugely benefit from these developments which will help businesses future-proof themselves in this new world.
What’s Driving The Growth In SD-WAN Adoption?
According to analyst firm IDC SD-WAN adoption is predicted to reach $8 billion by 2021. Businesses across the globe are looking to access the benefits provided by SD-WAN implementations including cost savings of up to 50 percent, increased network resiliency, and better application performance across complex network environments.
Using Version Control To Automate DevOps
While the industry trying to speed up software development and deployment with methodologies like Agile, DevOps and CI/CD, one company believes that tools and solutions that go along with these approaches aren’t changing fast enough.
Leveraging The Managed SD-WAN Services Advantage With The Leaders
Traditional networks are struggling to keep up with the demands of new IT delivery models across enterprises – from the widespread adoption of cloud services, ever-expanding SaaS/application traffic, the explosion of IoT devices and increasing reliance on mobility and big data. Today, SD-WAN, with benefits of improved bandwidth economics, application prioritization, and centralized management, is reshaping the branch network architecture.
Is Your IT Workforce Ready For AIOps?
AIOps will change the way organizations operate. In the AIOps-enabled enterprise, where artificial intelligence and machine learning automate tasks to augment technology operations teams, businesses undergo a monumental shift that enables them to be more proactive, predictive and ultimately preemptive.
