Network Observability and Automation: Digital Priorities Demand Detailed Network Intelligence and Insights
This IDC Survey presents select results of multiple waves of IDC's 2022 Worldwide Future of Enterprise Resiliency and Spending (FERS) Survey. All contained results highlight digital initiatives, external pressures, IT requirements, and connectivity plans that drive the adoption and advancement of network management systems and services — particularly network observability and automation solutions. In assembling the selected slide content, results from Waves 4 to 9 in 2022 were processed.
(Note: Prior network management-related worldwide FERS Survey results for 2021 and 2022 are contained in Network Observability and Automation: Key Contributors to Digital Priorities and Pressures, IDC #US49271122, June 2022, and Digital Demands Drive Network Analytics and Automation, IDC #US48398421, November 2021.) While the results offered in these slides represent worldwide and regional views, more granular views (e.g., country, company size, and vertical industry) are available to IDC clients upon request.
"As networks have grown more critical and complex and, let's not forget, vulnerable, there is a pressing need to have full visibility into and control over not only networking components but those connected systems and services that fill out the end-to-end digital infrastructure. Network intelligence and insights need to extend from the inner core of the enterprise network, including LAN and WAN backbones, datacenter networks, and cloud services connectivity infrastructures, to the outer edge of the network, including branch locations, remote end users, and smart endpoint devices. Here, advanced network observability solutions bolster the integrity and impact of the networked infrastructure — whether on premises or cloud based — and boost the IT staff's productivity and impact." — Mark Leary, research director, Network Observability and Automation at IDC
