This IDC study provides predictions for the top 10 trends impacting enterprise and datacenter networking in 2017.
"IDC believes that in 2017, both enterprise networking and datacenter networking will continue to respond to rapidly emerging digital transformation trends (cloud, mobility, big data, and social business) including emerging accelerators such as IoT, cognitive computing, and robotics. These drivers will have a profound effect on business and technology requirements across the entire enterprise network. IDC expects that these factors will place unprecedented demands on the scalability, programmability, agility, analytics, and management capabilities of enterprise networks. IDC predicts that in 2017, overall enterprise network revenue will grow 3.5% to reach $43 billion," according to Rohit Mehra, vice president, Network Infrastructure.
