IDC at Interop ITX - Intelligent Automation of Networks Everywhere

May 02, 2018 - Las Vegas, NV, United States

Organizations today are becoming data-driven, technology-focused enterprises. To execute on this imperative, businesses must rethink how their critical network infrastructure is architected, operated and managed. Networks must be modernized architecturally and operationally, from the datacenter though the enterprise campus and out across the WAN to the branch and remote offices. Rigid architectures and manual processes must evolve to become flexible models powered by intelligent automation. This will make networks simpler to procure, provision, deploy, and manage. It will allow networks to be more closely aligned with application needs and more capable of delivering meaningful business outcomes.

In this session, IDC will explore how the network is increasingly being powered by intelligent automation, including:

  • The rise of Intent Based Networking (IBN)
  • SDN beyond the Datacenter, from SD-Access to SD-WANs
  • The growing importance of network visibility and analytics
  • IoT and the intelligent network edge
  • Cloud-based Network as a Service (NaaS) deployment models

This session will examine not only how enterprises can embrace these trends, but also how vendors and service providers intend to deliver new network services based on intelligent automation platforms.
