Managing the Network: What Has Changed? What Will Change?

By: Mark LearyResearch Director, Network Analytics


This IDC Survey Spotlight presents the outlook for network management investment and priorities for 2021 and beyond. It contains data from IDC's survey titled Enterprise Networking: Emergence of the New Normal. Survey responses were gathered from 250 United States–based IT and business executives and managers in midsize and large enterprises operating across all major verticals.

"COVID-19 has acted as both a disruption and an accelerant for network management. Business practices and levels changed overnight when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020. These changes had a dramatic effect on network management focal points and investment. While the pandemic is still a primary influencer in 2021 plans, enterprises are starting to look forward and beyond COVID-19. Here, network innovation is accelerating. And permanent changes are now taking hold in network management." — Mark Leary, research director, Network Analytics at IDC
