For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding
the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional
wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in
the adoption of public cloud services (a projected
86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1
organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective
network solution to address distributed traffic across
remote sites and branch offices.
Some of the specific issues organizations face with
their traditional WANs include:
- High total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Lengthy provisioning cycles
- Performance degradation with the growth of cloud
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity
To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are
adopting a new approach for their distributed branch
office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN)
offers improved performance, agility, and operational
flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN
solutions are created equal.

As enterprises become more distributed and migrate applications to the cloud, they will need to diversify
their network performance management solutions. In particular, the network operations team will need to
complement its packet-based monitoring tools with active test monitoring solutions to enhance visibility into
the cloud and help enterprises scale monitoring gracefully and cost-effectively.
This report outlines the limitations of legacy networks and how adding a technology called multipath networking can greatly improve the performance of cloud applications. It also provides advice on the evaluation criteria for multi-path networking solutions.
IT organizations struggle with numerous challenges — hybrid environments, lack of visibility during cloud migration, multiple infrastructure monitoring tools, and reliance on manual processes. Yet according to a 2018 global survey, less than half of IT practitioners are confident they can ensure performance and system availability with their current toolset.

The modern enterprise workforce poses new challenges for IT. Today’s employees work in more places, on more devices— personal or company-owned—and over more networks than ever, using a diverse array of datacenter applications, mobile apps, SaaS and cloud services. As they move among apps, networks and devices, IT needs to be able to control access and ensure data and application security without impeding productivity. That means enabling users to get to work quickly and easily in any scenario without having to deal with different ways of accessing each app. Traditional VPNs and point solutions add complexity for both users and IT, increase costs and fail to enable a holistic approach to business mobility. Over the years, many IT organizations have addressed these evolving requirements through point solutions and by case-by-case configuration of access methods. The resulting fragmented experience poses a key roadblock to productivity and increases user frustration. For IT, the lack of a

The goal of a Cloud-Managed Network is to make deployment, management and control over network infrastructure devices very easy, offset the need for trained IT staff at remote locations or for geographically dispersed organizations, and it provides both OpEx and CapEx savings. This comprehensive white paper provides you with information needed to successfully guide you through the decision-making process of determining the right network for your business.
To best support global users and customers, enterprises require seamlessly connectivity between branch office locations, applications, and workloads hosted in the
cloud. Many WAN solutions are ill-equipped for this task because they are generally rigid, complex to configure, and expensive to maintain.
IoT adoption, a dramatic increase of the number of network devices, and the sophistication of security threats further compounds this challenge. Geographically-distributed devices need secure cloud connectivity, limiting the ability of existing WAN solutions to fulfill the need of distributed organizations.
Cisco SD-WAN on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an overlay WAN architecture that is designed to address modern enterprise cloud applications and workloads, heterogeneous WAN connectivity, distributed global workforces, and other business needs that traditional WAN solutions cannot meet.
