This IDC PlanScape provides a framework for how enterprises can deploy software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) infrastructure to drive a future of connectedness strategy. It describes the key evaluation criteria, use cases, risks, and success factors of choosing, implementing, and managing SD-WAN. It showcases how SD-WAN deployments can be a key enabler to drive organizational digital transformation goals.
"SD-WAN infrastructure continues to be one of the most dynamic markets within the network industry as organizations across the globe invest in this technology both for the first time and, increasingly, when expanding their use of SD-WAN technology to help meet their business needs," says Brandon Butler, research manager, Enterprise Networks. "As organizations look to deploy SD-WAN infrastructure, ensuring that the technology buying process meets organizational business needs should be a chief priority.
