Rethink the Network to Support Digital Business

The network has always been important, but as more enterprises embrace digital business initiatives, it becomes even more critical. However, many network environments have not kept pace with the rest of IT and are unable to meet business requirements without major changes. In this session, we'll explore the organizational culture that must shift to include network managers in digital initiatives, and the technical options available to help modernize network systems, including software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and network function virtualization (NFV), network automation, and cloud services.
