Today’s globally distributed and diverse workforce needs flexible yet straightforward access to the corporate network, regardless of user location, device type, employee affiliation, and application location (on-premises, SaaS, IaaS). Expedience and fluidity can’t come at the cost of security, especially given the realities of modern cybercrime. Learn more about the five demands you should make of an updated comprehensive application access solution.
Using PaaS to build and extend the functionality of cloud software products (SaaS) means that you:
- No longer have the cost of maintaining hardware and / or a data center (especially if it is not being utilized 100% of the time) \ lowering costs and expanding resources
- Can set up development environments quickly and easily, boosting speed, innovation and agility
- Save time, improving speed and agility and reducing time to market
- Only pay for what you use, further reducing costs and increasing flexibility
…which, in turn, will provide faster time-to-value.
Customers and partners, and recently investors ask the question “How is one Intent-Based
Networking (IBN) offering different than the others?” And more often than not I hear answers that
sound subjective, descriptive, and subject to interpretation. What is needed are tangible, fact-based
nomenclature that can help you reason about the maturity of IBN solutions. Using this nomenclature,
we should be able to map IBN solutions to an IBN maturity level, starting with Level 0 (low
maturity/incomplete) and going up to Level 3 which enables a fully compliant IBN solution
IT organizations are facing new challenges as a result of digital transformation,
widespread cloud and SaaS adoption, mobile proliferation and pervasive IoT
deployments. They must build and operate their internal data centers to deliver
high availability for mission critical applications, rapidly onboard new applications
and scale capacity on demand – all within the mandate to be cost competitive
with infrastructure as a service providers (IaaS) like AWS and Azure. They are
architecting and building new Intent-Based Data Centers to deliver private cloud
services to their internal and external customers.
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport. The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.
As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or branc

With today’s enterprise IT landscape evolving faster than ever, it’s hardly surprising that IT teams find it difficult to keep pace with the seemingly non-stop testing requirement for new software. That’s particularly the case in the SAP arena, where end-to-end SAP-enabled business processes now frequently span multiple SAP applications and platforms, and increasingly draw on multiple SaaS applications – all with their own separate release cycles.
Over the last several years, manufacturers have embraced cloud applications. According to one estimate, between 2013 and 2023 the percentage of manufacturing and distribution software delivered via software as a service (SaaS) will increase from 22% to 45%.1

The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
SaaS and clourl-enabled ERP systems are the de facto replacement for legacy on-premises ERP systems.
Organizations have spent millions on outdated legacy ERP systems over die decades., creating a technical
debt that is a nightmare to untangle. Most of these antiquated systems are over 1 0 years old, predate
current ecommerce systems, and are not able to work within the digital economy. With the advent of the
digital age, businesses need a new digital core that includes Saa5 and cloud-enabled ERP sofrware.
