Why SD-WAN Is a Critical Component in the Future of Retail

The seismic effects of digital transformation are reshaping the retail world. Many retailers are starting to use technology to enhance the customer experience, which will be the defining characteristic of market winners in the years to come. But some, hamstrung by legacy WANs, are struggling to adapt their organizations to bandwidth-intensive applications that are the cornerstones of the digital world. They know they need to change, but to what? SD-WAN, which abstracts the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network, is the modern approach many retailers are choosing to keep pace with digital transformation. Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN makes the network more agile and reduces cost. For organizations looking to compete and win in the brave new digital world download our free whitepaper to learn more.

Simple AWS Networking with Application Defined SD-WAN

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud is a proven route to help organizations achieve rapid scalability, reduced time-to-market, and cost-effectiveness in their IT infrastructure. These benefits are delivered, in part, by automation, greater ease-of-use, and simplified management.

Many are challenged, however, with legacy network infrastructure and management solutions, as the complexity of managing dynamic workloads, as well as inconsistency in performance and security, can impair many of the benefits AWS provides. SD-WAN helps organizations overcome this challenge by providing automation and simplified management for cloud networking. This whitepaper looks at how Riverbed SD-WAN can help organizations improve performance, agility, and security in their cloud-centric network.

Digital Business and Cloud Demand New WAN Architectures

Today’s WANs (wide area networks) represent up to 25% of support costs for a typical end-user environment—yet fail to deliver the application performance and business agility required of digital business. The emergence of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions is changing all that.

Read this Gartner paper to explore how:

  • SD-WAN provides the foundation for digital business by automating manual tasks involved in configuring current networks
  • To align WAN strategy and architecture with business and application requirements
  • To create a strategy team from a broad range of disciplines to map out the new WAN architecture and successfully execute it

NetOps 2.0: Embrace Network Automation and Analytics to Stay Relevant in the Digital Business Era

Today, less than 5% of network operations teams are sufficiently skilled to realize the value possible from network analytics and automation solutions. This will improve over the next three years, but not much—by 2020, only 30% of network operations teams will be able to fully realize the benefits of these tools.

Read this Gartner paper to explore how to achieve greater network agility and reduce complexity by:

  • Building or retraining NetOps teams to embrace a process-driven culture
  • Applying network automation technologies
  • Translating business impact into network automation requirements
  • Translating network configuration changes to intent-based policy

Digital Businesses Need to Rethink Their Network Strategies ZK Research White Paper

The network plays a fundamental role in enabling the shift to digital. But it simply cannot fulfill this function while it is hardware-bound and hard-coded.

The network must become cloudlike to enable delivery of dynamic, rich digital services quickly and easily. This means shifting away from old approaches that require configuration of individual boxes to an approach that is software-defined, based on policy and orchestration. It’s time for SD-WAN.

Read this ZK Research white paper to:

  • Understand the challenge with traditional networks
  • Chart a path to SD-WAN
  • Learn what to look for in SD-WAN vendors
