  • How to get ahead with SDN.

    Large enterprises are under pressure to stay ahead of ever increasing customer expectations and developments in technology. They need to be able to innovate, scale and deploy at speed without incurring high costs. That’s why many organizations are now looking into the benefits of SDN with its promise of elastic, scalable networking and near-real-time service delivery.

    We worked with Longitude, a Financial Times company, to discover the true extent to which organizations are embracing SDN, and their plans for the future. Our report is based on the experiences of 165 senior IT leaders from large organizations in a range of industries and countries. It provides an in-depth analysis of global organizations’ ambitions and challenges around SDN.

    The research found that 15% of organizations have already implemented SDN. And adoption is set to accelerate—with 57% of respondents expecting to have deployed SDN within two years. Read the report for insights into how global enterprises are benefiting from SDN, with real-life examples of successful SDN deployments.
