With emerging technologies and innovative applications, the enterprise network infrastructure is slated to evolve phenomenally over the next few years. As the hybrid cloud takes a key part in all enterprise operations, infrastructure will never be the same again. Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst David Cappuccio stated some of the top ways this disruption will take place, in the research firm’s IT Symposium/XPO at Orlando this week. Some of these trends, he noted, were an outcome of new technologies that are taking over- cloud computing, automation and networking. He highlighted some of the thought-provoking network infrastructure trends.
A top one is an Automation-strategy rethink, which is not a new trend, but since automation has created a new complexity in the infrastructure that might cause confusion in enterprise strategy, it becomes critical.
