VIAVI Solutions released the results of its 11th annual State of the Network global study. Findings demonstrate that a significant portion of enterprise IT teams are unsure how to handle cloud migration challenges. The annual study was compiled from the insights of over 600 respondents, including network engineers, IT directors and CIOs from around the world.
“Based on this year’s State of the Network, you’ve really got to feel for enterprise IT teams,” said Douglas Roberts, Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise & Cloud Business Unit, VIAVI Solutions. “They’re losing control of infrastructure and services that are migrating to the cloud, while simultaneously supporting employees who may be working anywhere and yet remain on the hook to maintain performance and resolve issues. They need solutions to increase their scope of visibility and speed of response, as well as smarter analytics.”
Highlights of the this 2018 study include: IT teams responsible for resolving cloud issues, Employees accessing resources remotely, Application performance monitoring challenges, Emerging technology deployments and Bandwidth demand growth.
The four key takeaways for IT service delivery teams are: Adopt a cloud by default approach, Bring in network tools that can provide performance insight into Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, Achieve end-to-end coverage and Gain remote user intelligence.
