"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN.
No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward.
Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."
"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."
"McKinsey conducted a study of CIOs and CTOs of large enterprises from 17 industries. 80% said they hadn’t reached the agility their business needs due to costly trade-offs like sacrificing speed for security or preferred tools for uniformity.

Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging
technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are
quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a
Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications
environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid
scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility.
Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and
reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a

Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration
"Digital Transformation Is Changing How Enterprises Provide Secure Web Access to Users.
According to Gartner, “Digital business and edge computing have inverted access requirements, with more users, devices, applications, services, and data located outside of an enterprise than inside.”
A New Approach to Enterprise Security in the Cloud Is Needed.
Gartner recommends, “Complexity, latency and the need to decrypt and inspect encrypted traffic once will increase demand for consolidation of networking and security-as-a-service capabilities into a cloud-delivered secure access service edge (SASE, pronounced “sassy”).” This new approach requires an Internet isolation solution that:
- Provides 100 percent malware-free email and web browsing
- Preserves the native email and web browsing experience
- Gives users ubiquitous yet secure access wherever they work

enough to make sense of all this data in every
language and in every dimension. Unless
you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and
you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going
to have some unknowns in your world.
In the world of security, unknown threats exist
outside the enterprise in the form of malicious
actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware
that moves fast and destroys everything
it touches. The unknown exists inside the
enterprise in the form of insider threat from
rogue employees or careless contractors –
which was deemed by 24% of our survey
respondents to pose the most serious risk to

form of new devices, new cloud applications,
and new data. The unknown is what keeps
CISOs, what keeps you, up at night – and we

As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration.

Why your data catalog won’t deliver significant ROI
According to Gartner, organizations that provide access to a curated catalog of internal and external data assets will derive twice as much business value from their analytics investments by 2020 than those that do not.
That’s a ringing endorsement of data catalogs, and a growing number of enterprises seem to agree. In fact, the global data catalog market is expected to grow from US$210.0 million in 2017 to US$620.0 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.2%.
Why such large and intensifying demand for data catalogs? The primary driver is that many organizations are working to modernize their data platforms with data lakes, cloud-based data warehouses, advanced analytics and various SaaS applications in order to grow profitable digital initiatives. To support these digital initiatives and other business imperatives, organizations need more reliable, faster access to their data.
However, modernizing data plat
