5 things enterprises need to do before implementing SD-WAN

Doug Farndale, Vice President, APAC Silver Peak | April 13, 2016
Doug Farndale of Silver Peak talks about what enterprises need to be aware of and the steps they need to take in order to ensure their organization is ready to reap the full benefits of SD-WAN.

5.     Evolve the skills of network operations. Even if the infrastructure is ready and the applications have been studied, the business needs a network operations team that can support it. Managing virtual workloads, network architectures, orchestrating services and analysing data requires significantly different skills than managing routers. If the organisation doesn't have the internal skills, consider using a managed service as a way of bridging the gap.

Evolving to an SD-WAN has a strong ROI for businesses but many of the benefits could be negated if the proper pre-work isn't done. Be aggressive with SD-WAN but makes its important to ensure the organisation is ready.
