NaaS And The Intelligent Edge
As identified by IDC, today’s enterprises need the network to embrace the edge, wherever it may be. “The edge is where data is created, captured, and processed,” whether it’s the cloud or an internet of things (IoT) device.
To combat the increased burden of management for this extended enterprise network, NaaS offers enterprises a way to outsource the day-to-day management of the network. It also offers dynamic scalability and access to cutting-edge technology through a flexible consumption model. In the report, IDC identifies NaaS as a critical piece for extending the enterprise network to the edge.
Is NaaS with HPE GreenLake Right For You?
- Improved agility, which leads to better life-cycle management
- Improved productivity and business responsiveness to drive growth from quicker access to new functions and features
- Budgeting is improved through analytics features
Perhaps most importantly, “Customers quickly realized that the enhanced visibility, transparency, and flexibility of these models allow IT and business leaders to use real-time insights to make strategic business decisions.”
When it comes to NaaS, organizations have come to expect the same service levels and bandwidth access, regardless of the location. This need for availability and flexibility, as well as optimized network performance is driving enterprises towards the adoption of NaaS.
Another driving factor is the need to acquire new IT assets without significant upfront costs. In a recent survey conducted by IDC, 43% of respondents believed that the unique challenges of 2020 and beyond would “significantly or moderately increase” interest in aaS models. IDC also observed that once implemented, aaS models have a high retention rate and frequently lead to increases in implementation.
