Navigating Network Transformation with the Convergence of SD-WAN and Security
The adoption of managed SD-WAN services has steadily increased in the past couple of years across geographies and industries, driven by a rise in remote work. SD-WAN managed services outsourcing grew by about 40% from 2021 to 2022. Additionally, the enterprise need for network security, effective application, and user and policy optimization is driving joint SD-WAN and SASE implementations. However, businesses still face challenges, such as migration from existing legacy networks, vendor management, and lack of skilled resources, while implementing SD-WAN. These trends, and others, are covered in Avasant’s SD-WAN Managed Services 2022–2023 RadarView™.
SD-WAN a Pillar for Business and Digital Transformation
The network serves as the backbone for the success of any digital transformation strategy. Incorporating SD-WAN as part of an organization’s digital strategy will improve the agility and flexibility of the network. But despite these benefits, adoption and investment levels for SD-WAN are low. On the other hand, early adopters are experiencing high ROI and TCO success rates. This Research Byte summarizes our full report, SD-WAN Adoption Trends and Customer Experience.
SD-WAN Adoption Trends and Customer Experience 2022
Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) has evolved from a technology designed to reduce costs and enhance operational efficiency to being a crucial element in business sustainability. It is a fundamental pillar for business and digital transformation. This study quantifies the current adoption and investment trends for SD-WAN as well as the benefits driving companies to expand their SD-WAN implementations. We assess these trends by organization size and sector. We also look at the ROI and TCO experiences of adopters along with current investment levels. We conclude with practical advice for planning new investments in SD-WAN and associated services.
Enabling Business Agility and Digital Transformation at Speed with SD-WAN
With the increased use of cloud and digital services, the traditional wide area network (WAN) can no longer satisfy enterprise network requirements, such as on-demand scaling, centralized traffic management, immediate network visibility, and enhanced security. As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) services to replace or support their existing network infrastructure. In this scenario, service providers play a pivotal role in helping companies implement and manage their SD-WAN services to transform their network infrastructure and drive the overall digital transformation agenda. These trends, and others, are covered in our SD-WAN Managed Services 2021-2022 RadarView™.
