A smarter SD-WAN with Application Intelligence+ maximizes ROI on infrastructure dollars
MOVING to the cloud brings many advantages to organizations. However, when the move to the cloud is augmented by an intelligent software defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) solution, its specific capabilities maximize performance and provide exponential returns to the business.
For organizations chasing important digital transformation goals and looking to deliver smarter and faster business outcomes through lighter and more flexible applications from the cloud, an SD-WAN solution is an important piece of the puzzle.
Modern businesses environments heavily depend on business applications that can be accessed from anywhere. It’s how sales teams, project managers, and business leaders are mobilized and enabled — this is the end result of an ideal state digital transformation project involving the cloud.
However, the reality is that without an intelligent SD-WAN solution, the applications might suffer from lags, delays, and other delivery issues that mar the user experience. You can be sure that this will happen at key times, when it matters most!
“The emergence of SD-WAN technology has been one of the fastest industry transformations we have seen in years. Organizations of all sizes are modernizing their Wide Area Networks to provide improved user experience for a range of cloud-enabled applications,” explained IDC Network Infrastructure VP Rohit Mehra.
According to IDC’s predictions, the SD-WAN market is set to see unprecedented growth in coming months. Most recent forecasts point out that there will be a 40.4 percent compound annual growth rate from 2017 to 2022 and the market will balloon to a valuation of US$4.5 billion by 2022.
Businesses realize that the internet is expansive and cloud deployments provide a smart way to reduce costs, improve agility, and push flexibility across the organization’s operational infrastructure. However, without a smart SD-WAN solution, it all falls apart.
The network is invisible but mission–critical
Given IDC’s forecast, it’s natural for the market to be flooded with SD-WAN vendors, but there’s one that stands out that is more than merely fit for purpose and convenient to deploy — it’s Infovista’s Ipanema SD-WAN offering.
The company has evaluated its users’ needs and built a solution that provides the most marked improvement of end-to-end application visibility, reliability, and performance in terms of quality of experience (QoE) right out of the box.
Ipanema SD-WAN uses Application Intelligence+ to enable organizations to allocate resources independently, automatically, and dynamically – either to preset rules, or according to pre-defined triggers. IT managers can now set configurations once, and the system takes over, ensuring optimal performance for end-users.
The automation that Infovista bakes into its Ipanema offering is not only able to provide the organization with complete control of user QoE at the individual session level but is also able to provide the fillip that the company’s transformation program really needs in order to scale the digital maturity curve.
While those moving to the cloud for the first time might not realize the importance of being able to control QoE at the session level, Ipanema SD-WAN wins over experienced users immediately because session-level granularity via end-to-end dynamic QoS provides the guarantee that applications are serving the needs of the business 100 percent of the time.
Ipanema SD-WAN provides a market-proven solution that guarantees the performance, security, and success of the organization’s entire digital application portfolio under any network conditions, letting enterprise CIOs maximize their returns from infrastructure investments.
A recent study by Forrester, commissioned by Infovista, found that 42 percent of enterprises that move to an application-aware SD-WAN enjoy a much more consistent user experience.
However, only 22 percent of non-application-aware SD-WAN users expect to see application performance consistency as a benefit. That’s the difference between good-enough and exceptional, clearly defined by the Infovista difference.
