Japan Software-Defined WAN Forecast, 2017−2021

This IDC study provides market trends and forecasts for the Japan software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) market. It also discusses approaches to popularizing SD-WAN in Japan."The speed at which enterprises are changing is accelerating. Projects toward digital transformation (DX), including the use of the Internet of Things (IoT), which networks various devices, are also picking up speed. As the operation and administration of traditional static WAN systems is unable to respond to these rapid changes, IT departments are becoming responsible for more network operational and administrative duties. Companies need to understand that deploying the new network operation and administration paradigm of SD-WAN is the key to making it possible to respond to these changes," said Yoko Ono, senior communications market analyst, Communications, IDC Japan.
