According to 'Everest' Group, the COVID-19 pandemic fuelled the digital transformation initiatives of enterprises to ensure business continuity. With a work-from-home culture prevalent for the past 12-18 months, there has been a shift in network strategies of enterprises to provide seamless and secure connectivity to their workforce. Rapid cloud adoption along with other digital transformation initiatives have further accelerated the enterprise needs to adopt next-generation network technologies.
The network services industries are bound to undergo radical changes as next generation network technologies such as private 5G network, SD-WAN, and IoT/edge networks gain popularity. Service providers need to realign their strategies with these shifts in the network services market to ensure that they can provide next-generation network services to enterprises.
