As business leaders go through digital transformation, they recognize SD-WAN gives them the agility they need to scale cloud services while containing bandwidth costs. Entrusting the day-to-day operational management and troubleshooting of an SD-WAN to a managed service provider (MSP) creates additional value by minimizing risk and improving IT efficiency. But there’s another important benefit to consider when selecting the right SD-WAN solution. To truly optimize their network investments, business leaders need real-time network visibility with insights that support informed digital business decision-making.
With today’s reliance on cloud-based business applications, network connectivity is paramount to maintaining productivity. From cloud-based voice and video collaboration to applications that track customer engagement activities, high-quality connections ensure employees have access to the tools they need for the business to thrive. For the digitally transformed business, any connectivity outage or network performance issues can bring productivity to a halt.
The concept of a managed SD-WAN solution places the responsibility for maintaining network connectivity in the capable hands of the MSP experts. With the trusted MSP watching over the network and resolving any issues, how can business leaders verify the network connections and cloud services are performing as expected? What investments should be made to ensure the network will be ready to deliver as the business grows, and new applications drive up bandwidth usage and network congestion? These important questions are more challenging if your managed SD-WAN solution creates a blind spot. This is why network visibility is a key consideration for businesses who want to unlock the full value of managed SD-WAN.
