Digital transformation post-COVID-19: it all starts with WAN

7th September 2020 | 2:00pm BST
How to modernize your network to support changing business requirements?

COVID-19 has disrupted all enterprises in more ways than one, challenging the way we do business, where we operate from and the budget we have available. That said, the crisis has also presented great opportunity to accelerate transformation.

It’s become clear a cloud-first approach to infrastructure will enable network modernization to support the level of performance required to connect our now dispersed workforces. While on-premises architecture has its place, is can hinder our ability to adopt SaaS applications and gain end-to-end visibility of our networks.

To get ahead in digital transformation, it’s crucial that enterprises get their Wide Area Network (WAN) architecture right. However, the journey is a risky one given the critical nature of connectivity, meaning simplifying complex networks, speeding up network performance and application acceleration can become a pipedream.

For anyone exploring their options when it comes to navigating legacy WAN environments, this virtual roundtable is for you.

Join Aryaka and a group of IT thought leaders for a discussion about the architecture requirements to securely connect the enterprise, the challenges Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) routing and the benefits of a WAN multi-cloud approach.

Discussion Topics

What challenges are you facing within your current WAN architecture? Has COVID-19 made you re-evaluate your network infrastructure?
How would you describe your cloud level of performance now you have a remote workforce? How has access to SaaS applications been affected?
How are you, or have you, navigated your legacy WAN environment, such as MPLS?
How are your budget priorities shifting and any mix between CapEx and OpEx?
