Work is no longer a place you go, but rather a thing that you do from wherever you are and on whatever device you choose. With the explosion of mobile tools and applications, companies need to ensure that all employees have access to their applications anytime, anywhere, can work together in real-time, and seamlessly meet client demands. As workers and resources become more mobile, and edge computing further redistributes resources, having a core network that functions as a hub for multiple branch offices is becoming more inefficient.
Companies in every industry are embarking on digital transformation journeys to keep up with customer demand and be more data-driven. To create exceptional customer experiences means being available to consumers in the spaces they are and making it easy for them to get what they want and need through the channels of their preference. Digital transformation is a foundational change in how an organization delivers value to its customers. It doesn’t come in a box – it means that businesses must rethink how they use technology, branch offices, people, and processes to change company performance.
IT leaders have to dramatically transform how their networks are managed, especially to embrace an increasingly complex IT landscape. Organizations with distributed branch offices and users expect to be able to have predictable network access. For true cross-organizational collaboration, productivity enhancement, and improved user experience, every employee and customer needs access to essential business applications. Businesses can only survive so long without effectively addressing user expectations, and meeting these expectations means having the technology in place to deliver.
The End-to-End Solution
While emerging technology and revamped processes are crucial, having the right network solution is essential to any digital transformation. Software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) offers businesses a host of significant benefits, including simplified monitoring and management, improved network and application performance, easy installation, and, of course, seamless scalability. Modern enterprise applications work across numerous clouds. SD-WAN can provide the necessary speed and connectivity to take full advantage of a multi-cloud architecture.
SD-WAN makes it easier for IT departments because it provides more visibility and control. SD-WAN routes traffic around problems, ensuring application performance, and adapts to changing conditions. It provides analysis that drastically reduces false positives and unnecessary escalations, saving your IT department time to focus on what matters.
Transitioning to SD-WAN can seem overwhelming, but it is not complex. VMware SD-WAN™ by VeloCloud® was designed with simplicity as the main goal—without sacrificing security, flexibility, or speed. VMware delivers high-performance, reliable branch access to cloud services, private data centers, and SaaS-based enterprise applications.
