Networks that deliver change : Key trends and transformation insight for future proofing your network

This IDC White Paper presents the outcomes of a survey exploring the views of medium and large enterprises in EMEA on major aspects of their IT and networking operations, advanced network technologies adoption trends and projections, purchasing behavior, staff qualifications, and ecosystem market transformation.

In IDC's view, results prove that networking in datacenters and campus environments is ripe for major disruption, with trials of new techniques being well under way, while the chasm that exists between theoretical knowledge of advanced networking technologies to use them to solve networking challenges is evident. The main challenge is overcoming current networking legacy, requiring much faster adoption of automation, which in turn requires adoption of SDN and virtualization.

Skills shortage is, in IDC's view, another significant underlying issue hampering the adoption of advanced networking technologies. Vendors and their partners need to bolster enterprise clients' capabilities here by providing advanced services, serving as a catalyst to accelerate adoption of advanced technologies, supported by improved service capabilities to assist enterprises in all stages of networking infrastructure design, deployment and operation.
