Juniper is Engineering Simplicity for the Multi-cloud Journey

IMG_3932I recently attended Juniper’s NXTWORK 2018 event in sunny Las Vegas. Well, I assume it was sunny--as most of these events go, most of my time was spent in the convention center. Juniper has had a number of key additions to its executive team since last year and we are now starting to see the results of those shifts. Most noticeable this year was the focus on enterprise customers and enabling them to drive operational efficiency into their multi-cloud environments.

According to Juniper, the new era of multi-cloud requires:

  1. Visibility.
  2. Insights.
  3. Automation.

Juniper didn’t stop with the “what” and “why,” they also developed a framework for “how” organizations will make the transition to the multi-cloud era. They laid out a five-step framework to do just that. It includes:

  1. Human-driven.
  2. Workflow-driven.
  3. Event-driven.
  4. Machine-driven.
  5. Self-driving.

The key for most organizations will be to ensure they have the appropriate levels of connectivity for all users, applications, devices etc. and deliver a positive experience in this new era Juniper refers to as multi-cloud.
