NaaS Can Address Today’s Enterprises Needs

NaaS Can Address Today’s Enterprises Needs-01

While the Network has been late in adopting the as-a-service model, it has arrived at the perfect time when the industry has been witnessing an upheaval.

While it has been in the industry for many years, most people still perceive Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) in terms of computing power and storage capacities, such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) or Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS). But the question that CIOs ask themselves why NaaS has emerged this late? What has changed? Was the Covid-19 the driving force behind it? The answer lies in understanding the shifting IT landscape.

Today’s on-premises networks of enterprises are predominantly being crafted, built, and operated by IT organizations. At the same time, the planning, as well as procurement methodologies are steadily evolving. Since organizations have begun to embrace public clouds and the various shifts in devices, technology, and workplace, the perimeter network restricted to their organization in a physical space has disappeared. Additionally, the evolving competition in the marketplace has left organizations with no choice but to focus on core business processes. This has resulted in IT teams transforming the traditional way of designing, building, procuring and running networks to the one that is dynamic and agile. Thus, with the removal of traditional network barriers and an ever-evolving IT infrastructure, there has never been a better time to consider integrating the NaaS.

Here are a few ways NaaS addresses the needs of today’s organizations:

  • Provides flexibility to meet the ever-evolving needs of today’s organizations:

As-as-Service models are helping organizations with the financial flexibility they are after to achieve continued business objectives without needing significant investments for IT infrastructure such as storage, compute, or network resources. The pandemic has left organizations with financial difficulties and forced them to preserve as much cash as possible. This has led many to adopt subscription-based models to ease the major capital investments they need for large deployments. This also means that organizations need to shorten their planning cycles. With NaaS, organizations can plan a more stable and predictable process for their operational budgeting.

●       Empowers organizations to keep up with innovation

Technology is evolving at a rapid pace. This accelerated pace often leads to some of the equipment becoming obsolete and the IT staff being unprepared for the transition. With NaaS, organizations have a methodology to keep the equipment and resources updated with faster refresh cycles through upgrading licenses or updating. Additionally, NaaS gives organizations the ability to meet line-of-business requirements to swiftly release new services and features. These extended services assist organizations to ensure maximum performance while keeping organizations safe from infrastructure vulnerabilities and out-of-date equipment.

  • Minimizes operational risk

The addition of services for NaaS deployments helps organizations to mitigate risks with proactive management capabilities. These capabilities can be in the form of artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) or skilled networking experts that help organizations maximize the deployment with the new features. Built to optimize the operations and infrastructure performance, the proactive management methodology helps to address any errors before they can cause any sort of disruption.

There’s no denying that networking has taken a long time to provide as-a-service offerings. However, the increased consumption of cloud-based technologies, shortened planning cycles, as well as diminishing the restricted network boundaries have brought the importance of NaaS to the forefront.
