In our present digital world, the primary interaction your employees and customers have with your business and services is online. While the driving force behind investing in advanced technologies like software-defined networking (SD-WAN) is to overcome complex IT challenges such as improving network and application performance or security, often overlooked is the power or “brains” of the technology that delivers the overall results of the solution—the online portal.
When we think of an online portal, we may initially think of a place to log in and pay our bills. However, when it comes to sophisticated technology solutions, an online portal is the ‘make it or break it’ factor for the overall technology delivery and user experience. Let’s discuss the why.
The interface for solutions like SD-WAN are much more intricate in the role of the technology itself. Network connections are complex in nature and even more so, are their requirements. Network performance requirements and security needs vary by business and the number of users, transactions and applications involved. With a reliance on more cloud-based applications to operate and properly serve customers, the performance of applications has become ever-more critical to business success.
This is where the online portal comes into play. Having the power to see, control and prioritize your network and applications in real time, as they fluctuate, is essential to maintaining the appropriate performance required for your business.
