Redwood Shores, Calif.—Sep 25, 2018
As enterprise networks grow, so does the challenge of effectively managing them a new Oracle Communications survey found. In the "Enterprise Networks in Transition: Taming the Chaos" report, IT and telecom leaders noted that security, fraud, and increased complexity resulting from channel proliferation are amongst their top concerns. Companies are increasingly looking to emerging technologies, such as biometrics, artificial-intelligence, and blockchain as opportunities to improve security and control.
In June 2018, Oracle surveyed 277 IT, telecom and network decision makers globally regarding their perspectives on key business and network trends and the solutions that will help them compete and thrive in a digital world. Sixty-six percent of respondents represented companies with at least 11 locations and 62 percent managed operations in multiple countries.
Separately, software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) was also listed as a critical technology underpinning the evolution of enterprise networks. Yet, North America lags other regions in software-defined networking (SDN) deployment (50 percent versus 65-78 percent).
“In today’s digital economy, enterprises face increasing operational complexities, heightened customer expectations and an unprecedented amount of chaos in the form of security breaches and communications overload that require a higher level of network sophistication than ever before,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.
