"Although network performance is increasingly important to the success of digital business projects, the enterprise network itself is undergoing fundamental changes, with disruptions caused by the cloud and at the edge. Infrastructure and operations leaders should rethink ways to monitor the network."
Read the new Gartner Market Guide for NPMD to learn how:
- "With the changing edge migration to the cloud and the introduction of microservice/container architectures, new dynamic network architectures are affecting the efficacy of traditional network monitoring stacks."
- "A well-performing network is critically important to digital business projects; however, the level of network agility and visibility often fails to meet the requirements of these initiatives."
- "The goals of network operations are increasingly aligned with security operations, which share the objective of guaranteeing a well-performing and secure network."
