Most enterprise leaders know they need to change how their IT environment is designed, planned and managed to keep pace with the opportunities and demands of digital transformation and Industry 4.0. With 71% of organizations either actively researching or having SD-WAN in production*, it’s clearly regarded as the smart way forward. But with so many vendors and delivery approaches out there, where do decision-makers start?
SD-WAN is a critical decision that merits careful consideration. Should you build your SD-WAN or buy it as a service? That depends on several factors including time to market, cost model preferences (CapEx versus OpEx) and whether your in-house team has the expertise to deploy and manage services and connections to remote sites.
Outsourcing presents an opportunity to source your SD-WAN from a growing number of service providers who can handle the design, installation and operational challenges, freeing your IT team to focus on delivering innovative and competitive services. This is your chance to see why a managed SD-WAN is the smart answer, all round.
