In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond
As mobile device usage has skyrocketed in recent years, mobile applications have emerged as the key engagement channel for businesses to connect with their most loyal and most valuable customers. Mobile app usage represents more than 85% of total mobile device time, and users now spend more time with apps than they do with television. But while app usage has increased more than 60% over the last two years, the number of apps each user actively engages with has remained fairly steady, at around 27 per month. This means users have a limited appetite for additional apps – but are heavily engaged with the ones they use. So while the mobile web gives businesses broad reach, mobile apps offer a robust link to their best customers. Users who value the company enough to go through the trouble of downloading and installing the app are a brand’s most engaged audience and loyal fan base.
To best support global users and customers, enterprises require seamlessly connectivity between branch office locations, applications, and workloads hosted in the
cloud. Many WAN solutions are ill-equipped for this task because they are generally rigid, complex to configure, and expensive to maintain.
IoT adoption, a dramatic increase of the number of network devices, and the sophistication of security threats further compounds this challenge. Geographically-distributed devices need secure cloud connectivity, limiting the ability of existing WAN solutions to fulfill the need of distributed organizations.
Cisco SD-WAN on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an overlay WAN architecture that is designed to address modern enterprise cloud applications and workloads, heterogeneous WAN connectivity, distributed global workforces, and other business needs that traditional WAN solutions cannot meet.

A hospital’s network is the foundation for the critical applications that run on it, where most of those applications are related to the hospitals core businesses. The return on the investments made in EMR (electronic medical records), PACS (picture archiving and communication system), clinical imaging systems and workstations on wheels, can only be truly realized if those assets are always available to the people in need in a reliable, secure and highly optimized way, at a fixed location, or while mobile.
