The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.
As enterprises embark on the digital transformation to take advantage of artificial intelligence, big data, machine learning, IoT, and cloud, they need a network infrastructure that gives them a solid foundation. Juniper Networks® Unite CloudEnabled Enterprise allows networking across your entire enterprise—campus, branch, and data center—ultimately helping you reduce risk, increase agility, lower costs, and enhance the customer experience. Here are the Top 6 reasons why enterprises embarking on the journey of digital transformation should switch to the Juniper Unite Cloud-Enabled Enterprise solution.
Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.
