What is the Business Case for SD-WAN?
Enterprise application delivery has changed. Public cloud is now the source of 44% of enterprise traffic, with the average business using 10-15 cloud applications at any one time. Meanwhile, IoT is proving a disruptor for that traffic with network-connected devices in remote sites increasing every day. The result is that the WAN is more important than ever.
While everybody will accept a service ‘going down’, losses and inconsistencies on networks with no sure sign of quality improvement are another matter for customers and end users. Low-quality voice and video communications or variable bandwidths in file sharing and collaboration can prove huge daily headaches for businesses.
