CASE STUDY: With great emphasis on round-the-clock connectivity coupled with the desire for cost savings, SD-WAN has emerged as the prime candidate that can address the changing needs of organizations today. As often is the case, no new technology comes without its own share of complexities and SD-WAN is no exception. In addition to overcoming technology issues, adoption requires an organizational culture change.

This session will discuss the different approaches that an enterprise can take to deploying SD-WAN including buying managed SD-WAN services or taking a DIY approach. It will discuss lessons learned and best practices from development and implementation experience. Additionally, attendees will learn about:
• How to do a comparative evaluation of Managed services versus a DIY approach
• How to overcome complexities and challenges when deploying an SD-WAN
• Why there is a need for solutions that deliver end-to-end data and visualization of real-time operations.
