The rise of cloud-based computing coincides with the increase of as-a-service models. Many companies realize that transitioning to this business model offers significant opportunities for business development, growth, and financial transparency. Enterprises adding new technologies to IT infrastructure can stretch existing networks beyond capacity. This is why many companies are finding that Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) is exactly what they need to fulfill their business objectives. In this article, we discuss the basics of NaaS, its benefits, and why these advantages can help with the costliness and complexity of managing multiple networks within your organization.
Network as a Service (NaaS) offers many advantages for network management teams such as flexibility and increased customization. It is an important way for companies to configure their network infrastructure and allows customers to operate their own networks without the clunky hardware; all that is needed is internet connectivity. As the technology world continues its shift in the “as a service” era, this standardized NaaS offering that Aruba makes possible should come as no surprise in GreenLake’s latest expansion. It is the first standardized version of NaaS, a breakthrough for seamless cloud services. In this article we review the benefits of NaaS, the eight new enterprise NaaS offerings from Aruba, and how they can improve network application and performance management.
When remote work became the norm due to COVID-19, companies rushed to give their employees access to the tools and software they would need in order to effectively perform their jobs at home. Two years after this transition, organizations and their employees seem to be settling in. According to Forbes, “25% of all professional jobs in North America will be remote by the end of 2022.” Remote work, or at least a hybrid option, will most likely be permanent workforce models for many businesses, which obviously leads to new challenges for IT. In this article, we cover IT network challenges, what Aruba’s EdgeConnect Microbranch is, and how it can help your enterprise stay protected while working from home.
More than 20 years ago in 1999, Salesforce launched its customer relationship management (CRM) platform at salesforce.com. Little did we know that this would kickstart the realization of Software-as-a-Service. And roughly ten years ago, Infrastructure-as-a-Service came on the scene to become a standard deployment method of servers. It is safe to say that enterprises have come to recognize the great benefits that “as a Service” models offer.
While 2021 hasn’t brought a definite end to pandemic-era IT challenges like many hoped, other technology predictions have held steady, largely propelled by the new remote working and hybrid workforce standard. Examples include the continued proliferation of internet of things (IoT) devices, the accelerated adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation technologies, and an increased interest in software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) technologies.
In today’s rapidly changing work environments, enterprises can no longer mix and match solutions in an attempt to provide security for on-premises and remote employees. Instead, enterprises need one solution that can provide comprehensive, holistic security from edge-to-cloud.
In the past year and a half, securely facilitating remote working has become a priority for a majority of enterprises. It’s also become clear that remote working is going to be a longer-term or permanent working model enterprises will need to support.
There’s nothing worse than an investment that doesn’t pan out. Whether it’s hardware or software, a solution that fails to meet expectations, or wastes time and resources, stifles your enterprise’s ability to do business. For these and many other reasons, IT organizations have turned to “as-a-service” models, which lower the burdens and risks associated with new solutions.

The cloud has revolutionized the way enterprises do business on every level. For IT, cloud brings some complexity to network operations and infrastructure management.
As software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications rise in popularity and enterprises continue to embrace digital transformation initiatives, it’s critical these applications are available at any time, from any location, and from any device. IT must also guarantee consistent network performance and superior experiences to employees and customers, while ensuring security over a rapidly expanding attack surface.
