The Make or Break Role of SDN: according to recent research by McKinsey & Co., “The majority of [market or industry] incumbents do not respond” adequately to digital threats “and ultimately fail.” Here in Part Two, we summarize McKinsey’s tips for attaining digital success – and explain the make-or-break role Software Defined Networks (SDN) play in transforming your entire business model with digital technology.
Digital strategy is the most important game – a survival game, really – of every business’s life right now. And it’s playing out at breakneck speed in every single industry. Yet, shockingly, most companies are losing that game. According to a recent McKinsey study, only eight per cent of companies believe their existing business model will still be economically viable if their industry keeps digitizing at its current rate. That means 92 per cent fear their business isn’t going digital fast enough – and could fail as a result.
3 keys to finding the right SD-WAN vendor right now: The SD-WAN market is poised to explode in 2018, with growth projections in the range of $8 Billion by 2021. This presents a huge opportunity and the entire industry of network, cloud, and telecom services is intently preparing for the imminent market disruption. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has essentially created a land-grab as customers have begun ditching their legacy Cisco and MPLS networks in favor of more elegant software-defined solutions that provide greater agility and superior cloud performance for dramatically lower cost. Time is clearly of the essence as multiple competing SD-WAN solutions have emerged in the past few years, but for those looking to offer managed SD-WAN solutions it’s not too late to stake your claim.
There are a multitude of feature comparisons that can bog you down in a confusing SD-WAN vendor evaluation process, but here are three ways Service Providers can quickly narrow their focus; Public Cloud Optimization, Performance for Real-Time “Killer Apps”, and Time-to-Market. By focusing on these three critical features, a Service Provider can literally become an overnight SD-WAN sensation.

IT personnel and network engineers have a palpable feeling of uncertainty as a new set of challenges confront them. Digital transformation is turning business models on their heads. While enterprises take measures to bolster IT departments and gear up to adapt to the latest technologies, they face fundamental resistance from within. Hardware-centric enterprise networks are based on static deployments, which makes configuration changes too slow and too costly. These legacy networks were never designed to evolve at the pace which business requirements are changing today.
