The next wave of SD-WAN adoption will require an unprecedented degree of automated intelligence, including pervasive visibility and extensive security capabilities. Integrated AIOps will feature heavily too, ensuring networks and the applications that traverse them perform optimally, securely, and cost-effectively.
As features are added and extensibility grows, enterprises will place a premium on SD-WAN offerings that abstract the inherent complexities of provisioning, managing, and securing the WAN. Complexity incurs the expenditure of time and resources, which slows the speed at which business can move. Simplicity will take the form of easily consumable turnkey offerings that involve no compromise in the functionality and performance of both the SD-WAN overlay and the underlying network transports.
As enterprise buyers of the next wave of SD-WAN evaluate the available options, the partnership of CloudGenix and Wipro is well placed to help them achieve their digital-transformation objectives. This partnership will help deliver business benefits such as greater employee productivity, enhanced digital engagement with customers and partners, faster time to market, great WAN cost optimization (CapEx and OpEx), improved business agility, and ultimately, greater competitive advantage in a world where challenges come from traditional rivals as well as digital natives.
