Migrating to a Software-Defined Network (SDN) is a major transformation for any enterprise. SDN offers simplified management, security, provisioning agility, and improved data center economies. Additionally, many are also implementing Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) for remote site connectivity, as well as migrating some key services to public cloud.
Avoiding and reducing impact from degradations, during and post transition, is a top priority to ensure user experience is preserved. However, pinpointing the root cause of disruptions involving SDNs, SD-WAN, and cloud can be difficult if IT staff lacks economical visibility or uses inefficient point tools.
Successful migration and ongoing operations will depend on overcoming a lack of visibility into application dependencies and user experience. Your bottom line depends on continuous availability and quality end-user experience; anything less, puts your business at risk.
