ESG NETWORKING

IT organizations are evolving their networking infrastructures and operations to keep pace with changes in the data center, remote/branch offices, and endpoint devices. Data growth, virtualization deployments, cloud strategies, consolidation initiatives, and next-generation web application implementations are some of the trends driving the need for enhanced networking infrastructure performance, elasticity, and scalability. Software-defined networks are often depicted as the vehicle by which IT organizations can achieve these capabilities. The challenge for IT planners, however, is charting a steady course to SDN implementation without negatively impacting business operations. This means not only transforming legacy networking infrastructure, but also fundamentally changing how IT organizations collaborate with their application development peers to increase business agility.
