Today’s organizations are operating in a very Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) business environment. Like the saying goes “If you keep doing what you have been doing, you will keep getting what you have been getting”. To stay relevant and competitive in this VUCA world, businesses need to jump the curve by evolving continuously and rapidly. The key aspect of such an evolution is end-to-end flexibility to accommodate future advancements and unexpected changes.
Network is the backbone of any organization that uses technology in its day-to-day operations. It is the most critical component when it comes to implementing changes in the software or hardware ecosystems. It is as important as the nervous system of a human body. Hence, for a business to evolve, the end-to-end flexibility of networks becomes a primary aspect.
IoT is making steady inroads in multiple business areas. Hence, 50 billion additional devices are expected to be connected to the worldwide network by 2025. This is expected to boost the network automation market, which is expected to rise at a CAGR of 50% in the same period. These changing technology trends emphasize the need for flexible and smart networks to fulfill the present needs and adopt to the future needs.
Network DevOps offers this end-to-end flexibility combined with speed, agility, quality and scalability. Many organizations have started focusing on enhancing their network capabilities using Network DevOps to redefine business processes, provide high quality value added services to customers in a short span of time to generate more revenue. Network DevOps ensures that the organization is flexible enough to accommodate future digital advancements, thereby ensuring continuous revenue growth.
