Cloud and Drive for WAN Efficiencies Power Move to SD-WAN

This IDC study provides a technology assessment and update for SD-WAN, which includes a market forecast for products and services through 2020. It looks at the market drivers for SD-WAN and considers how the various market segments will grow and evolve, including the role that CSPs and MSPs will potentially play in this rapidly evolving space. "Digital transformation of the enterprise based on the 3rd Platform pillars of cloud and mobility is having profound ramifications for network infrastructure and network services provided to the enterprise by vendors and service providers alike. Cloud computing and hybrid architectures, in particular, are driving significant changes to how WANs are architected, built, and managed to support increasingly critical cloud-based application workloads. As a result, the market for SD-WAN products and services will grow impressively for the next several years, reaching $6 billion in 2020." — Rohit Mehra, vice president, Network Infrastructure, IDC
