“While the CLI remains the dominant mechanism for more than 85% of system engineers to implement network changes, several alternatives are gaining popularity, including APIs, fabrics, and SD-WAN. By 2020, only 30% of network operations teams will use the CLI as their primary interface, down from 85% at YE16.” 

Read this Gartner report to understand:

  • How the network is fundamentally changing to support the performance requirements of digital business applications.
  • How intent-based network technologies can automate current manual operational processes.
  • What tools, teams and architectures to consider.

 

We expect enterprise network leaders to continually move away from using device-by-device CLI-driven configurations and increasingly move to centralized policy-based operations. This move is a required precursor for network teams to deal with increased scale requirements resulting from the use of microservices/containers and the proliferation of IoT devices.
