Firms in the tech sector are both innovators and adopters of new technologies. This sector is unique in that they have large virtual teams spread across the world. These teams collaborate on multiple projects with huge interdependencies. For this sector, remote offices are not lean branches but full-fledged sites with a large number of employees. This model of operation creates unique challenges for the WAN infrastructure.
Adoption of cloud-hosted productivity applications like Office365 has a big impact on the volume and mix of WAN traffic. Carrying this volume of traffic over MPLS is expensive while transporting it over the Internet leads to degradation in application performance.
SaaS customer relationship management systems like Salesforce provide technology firms with the agility required in a very competitive sales environment. But these applications add to an already overloaded WAN infrastructure.
It is common for virtual teams operating in the US, Europe, India, China etc. to collaborate over virtual conference systems like Webex. Sub-optimal WAN transport can result in dropped or poor quality calls.
Adoption of DevOps is continuing to break down barriers between development and operations. For NetOps teams, the flexibility, speed and control offered by SD-WAN are critical to ensure that they play by the DevOps paradigm.
Virtual Desktop environments are widely used by technology firms with global in-house centers and IT service providers with regional offices in Europe, India, China, etc., to ensure security. But VDI applications are notoriously susceptible to delays and latency. Ensuring good application performance requires special consideration.
