EMEA Enterprise Networking Outlook for 2019: Moving Toward Digital-Native Networks
This IDC Presentation provides insight into how network virtualization is transforming the enterprise networking market, as the entire network infrastructure market moves toward the long-term goal of end-to-end digital-native networks built on the convergence of previously distinct boundaries between network types and locations. It also presents IDC's top 5 predictions for how this change will affect the EMEA market in 2019.
"The enterprise networking industry is changing as network hardware and software becomes increasingly disaggregated and the rapid adoption of new use cases such as edge IoT and multicloud applications push network requirements further than ever before. In EMEA, 2019 will see more disruption from software-based networking start-ups capitalizing on the disaggregation of network hardware and software, as well as shifts from network vendors and life-cycle services firms to align their portfolios, business models, and talent strategies to move toward the long-term goal of delivering end-to-end digital-native networks," said Roz Parkinson, research manager, EMEA Enterprise Networks and Life-Cycle Services.
