Enterprise Drivers for Network Modernization
Digital transformation is a key driver of network modernization. As applications become the digital lifeblood of the modern enterprise, end-to-end enterprise networks should be regarded as the digital nervous system. It should also be evident these networks must be comprehensively modernized, in lockstep with other components of IT infrastructure, if enterprises are to fulfill ambitious mandates for organizational digitization. If compute is modernized, for example, but the network is unchanged — remaining hardware defined, brittle, static, relatively unintelligent, and operated manually — digital transformation initiatives cannot help but fall short of their goals.
