"Digital transformation has simultaneously created pressure on enterprise networks to evolve to meet the increasing demands of the modern digital business while also creating a flurry of advanced technologies that help solve these challenges," says Rohit Mehra, vice president, Network Infrastructure at IDC. "It's imperative that networking professionals recognize these trends and prepare their networks for the continued changes that will impact their environments moving forward. The trends that have defined the central role of the network in the 3rd Platform era, such as the increased number of apps and devices — and related bandwidth requirements — will only continue to grow into the future."
