What does the current network technology landscape look like?
The world seems to be changing at breakneck speed and the pandemic has already accelerated digital transformation.
FREMONT, CA: People have seen some of the biggest networking technology upheavals of recent years. But nothing compares to the speed with which the epidemic arrived, bringing with it unintended consequences. Companies rushed to stay in touch with their employees when they walked away, practically overnight.
But there was a silver lining to this disaster. The epidemic has accelerated the digital transition which should take place in the coming years. According to the survey, 45.1% of respondents are willing to invest in cloud-based communications, such as VoIP, video and other collaborative services.
As a result, this year’s trends and developments will be driven by geographic independence, a people-centered approach, and increased connectivity (and beyond). CIOs need to keep up with the changes that will impact 2021 to stay connected, ensure business continuity, and stay smart by investing in secure networks.
Hybrid work is here to stay
In response to the epidemic, a wave of remote working shattered conventional ways of working and ushered in the culture of remote working, also known as The New Normal.
On the other hand, companies have recognized the negative consequences of working only from an office or home and have argued for a hybrid working style. Employees are free to work from any location, including a cafe, coworking space, or any other work-friendly setting. This approach will ensure employee collaboration and good productivity.
Network automation is essential
The importance of network automation has never been more vital. In the wake of the global epidemic, concerns about rising costs, scalability and business agility have arisen.
Businesses need a common point of contact to administer both conventional and cloud native applications, given the expanding culture of remote work, IoT, use of cloud infrastructure and increase in online transactions. This is where network automation can help. Automation allows the organization to handle many more service requests while maintaining the same level of efficiency.
AI will drive digital transformation
AI is beneficial for both IT professionals and end users. Lessons learned from the impact of the pandemic are not being overlooked.
Artificial intelligence will intelligently identify precise, real-time traffic and detect any malicious action. Businesses are now using algorithms to monitor networks for unusual activity and heavy traffic, such as distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
AI will take it to the next level by collecting real-time data and preparing businesses for important events and special occasions where high traffic is expected, such as Black Friday, Olympics, etc.
