Not every organization has the resources to pull a hybrid WAN together on its own. It can take a lot of expertise to develop an access strategy that considers how and where users and applications will intersect and the performance and resiliency required to facilitate those intersections.
The right partner can offer a managed SD WAN service that provides the tools and expertise that businesses need to reduce latency and bottlenecks and free IT staff from configuration and maintenance issues that prevent them from performing more valuable tasks.
Though the return on investment for SD WAN projects is typically measured in reduced capital and operating costs and improved IT productivity, additional value will be felt across the entire business. A successful project will enable a company to speed its growth and expand into new markets. At the same time, improved network capability can boost trust in technologies that rely on consistent network uptime and secure communications—technologies that customers expect and government regulators demand.
As applications continue to grow exponentially, organizations need to be confident that they have the right technology in place to support their business needs. An SD WAN can give them that, but not unless they can trust their partner to effectively design, implement and manage deployments instead of introducing more complexity.
In the end, improving business communications networks might not necessitate anything as dramatic as a total overhaul. If handled correctly, the impact of a simple evolution could be just as transformative.
