The SaaS delivery model reduces IT dependencies, and with a usage-based subscription can deliver up to 25% lower cost of ownership.

Top Impacting Factors    

Growth in Hybrid Cloud Migration:

Organizations have embraced hybrid cloud migration as a strategic initiative to achieve a balance between security, flexibility, and scalability. Better visibility and control over the distributed network infrastructure has already resulted in the adoption of new technologies such as SD-WAN and network function virtualization (NFV). This migration has brought new skills to the networking table such as cloud infrastructure management, network automation, and orchestration. According to 2022 Global Hybrid Cloud Trends Report of Cisco, 82% of IT leaders have adopted the hybrid cloud, as hybrid clouds stay as long as the markets demand scalability, resilience, cost optimization, security, and streamlined IT operations.

Furthermore, many players have invested and exploring technologies through the partnership, product launch and acquisition to strengthen the market footprint. For instance, in February 2021, Italian software company Tanaza has partnered with Intelbras, the Brazilian manufacturer of telecoms and security products, to launch a cloud-managed networking platform for the Latam market. The platform allows remote configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting in real-time of Intelbras-Tanaza powered devices deployed in multiple locations, from a single dashboard.

Rise in Demand for Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM):

Digital experience monitoring is another essential aspect of network management, as it provides greater visibility and control over both managed and unmanaged networks. The need for experience-driven network observability and management solutions is critical as businesses increasingly depend on digital services. DEM provides visibility into every communication path and degradation point, empowering teams to identify and resolve issues that could potentially impact the user experience delivery chain. This growth in need for user experience measurement and monitoring is expected to drive the adoption of DEM.
