In our increasingly technology-reliant world, most modern enterprises cannot achieve sustainable growth without an adaptive IT environment. That’s why having a stable, adaptable network makes the difference between a business that is succeeding and one that is struggling to keep its operations above water. Employees and customers alike depend on an enterprise’s network to do their jobs and conduct business. In other words, when the network fails, the business and its operations fail, too.
Leaders in the IT industry have turned their attention to creating a network solution that evens out the bumps in the road. If you are looking for a smooth connection process, Cisco DNA Center is for you.
To build a lasting house, you must first build a strong foundation. Without a strong foundation, you cannot build whatever you desire on it. The same principle can be applied to a data center. A data center requires a well-designed and stable infrastructure that offers the required agility to accommodate dynamically changing technology environments. Ultimately, this ensures greater longevity.
This summer and fall, our team has written a great deal on how Juniper Networks' intent-based networking (IBN) technology is helping companies automate the configuration, deployment, and management of enterprise data center components. We’ve identified how IBN validates the operational state of the network to ensure that it matches its slated intentions. That’s important because in the end, your technology investments are only effective if they further the business objectives of the organization. IBN prevents your technology directives from going adrift.
But what about security? Security must always be part of any discussion involving new technology solutions due to the prevalence of cyberattacks that originate from an ever-expanding threat landscape. The increasing risk factors that companies face today are forcing them to adapt zero-trust security strategies to reduce their threat exposure. Juniper Apstra not only complies with a zero-trust security mandate, but it also helps enforce it.
Enterprise technology vendors bombard IT leaders everywhere with messaging that emphasizes the value or added value that their solutions provide. However, value is an open-ended term, and as a consequence, eventually loses its effectiveness.
On the other hand, measured value is a whole other matter. The ability to assign a quantitative value to a respective solution allows for more informed decision making. That’s why Juniper Networks commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that an organization might realize from a Juniper Apstra deployment.
Modernized data centers require a great deal of investment and planning to be implemented and deployed correctly. As an IT leader, you must deploy the data center properly from the outset and ensure that it operates the way it was intended across its entire lifecycle. Otherwise, your enterprise will never realize its full potential and miss out on valuable ROI. While there are many challenges in building, operating, and supporting a data center today, we have identified five highly preventable pain points that companies find themselves struggling with today. The good news is that today’s intent-based networking (IBN) solutions such as Juniper Apstra can permanently relieve these common pain points.
In today’s technology-focused world, the foundation of a business’ digital presence is its network. From the top executives to the newest intern, your enterprise and the people that work with you depend on your network to do business. If your network performance isn’t providing the connectivity and bandwidth your employees need to be productive, your business will suffer.
We're all in IT together.
2020 has presented CIOs and IT Executives with unforeseen health and humanity challenges that affected the way business gets done, and significantly impacted how enterprise IT supported their users. And it's been one thing after another. Technology limitations were tested, as well as your company's leadership to lead through uncertainty. It's been a busy (and interesting) year for sure, and hopefully this week's roundup of articles can help as your company continues to architect a resilient IT environment for operating in a new normal—one that keeps employees productive and secure from where ever they choose to work.
The concept of intent-based networking is indeed an evolutionary leap in how we design, manage and maintain the enterprise networks of today. Gartner a while back actually coined the phrase of IBN. Rather than relying on manual intervention, intent-based networking incorporates AI and machine learning to automate administrative tasks and functions.
We could probably list 80 things to know about Cisco DNA Center, but for the sake of brevity, we will keep it to single digits. We say this because there is so much to this all-inclusive network management platform. This solution is the next step in network evolution. Its singular yet expansive platform includes a variety of tools that integrate with so many network functions and technologies. Some of these include network management, automation, virtualization, analytics, assurance, security, compliance and IoT connectivity. Cisco DNA Center is at the epicenter of Cisco Digital Network Architecture, which is Cisco’s architectural blueprint for today’s expansive enterprise networks. Regardless of the complexity of your hybrid architectures that incorporate multiple campuses, remotes branch and cloud architectures, Cisco DNA Center can help simplify it.
