EMA to share insights from new research report “The Future of Data Center Network Automation” in a webinar

Webinar on the future of data center network automation

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced that it will host a research webinar titled “The Future of Data Center Network Automation data,” featuring Shamus McGillicuddy, vice president of network management research at EMA.

Even in today’s multi-cloud era, data centers remain essential for businesses and service providers. They host many applications and services that enable commerce and communications. As enterprises and service providers embrace digital transformation, they are modernizing their data centers to make them more agile and automated. However, networks are often a barrier to modernizing data centers.

Network automation can remove these barriers by making networks more agile, reliable, and secure. Successful execution of data center network automation strategies will be critical to ongoing digital operations. Unfortunately, a new EMA study found that only 23% of businesses and service providers have full confidence in this execution.

During this webinar, McGillicuddy will share insights into “The Future of Data Center Network Automation”, a research report based on a survey of over 350 technology decision makers and in-depth interviews with engineers and network architects of multi-billion dollar companies.

Topics covered will include:

  • How a networking team decides whether to build or by a data center network automation solution
  • What network automation features and functionality provide the most value to data centers
  • How network automation solutions collect and manage the data needed to make a network change
  • What are the buzzwords to pay attention to
  • What challenges you might encounter when trying to automate your own data center network

This independent research was sponsored by Gluware, IP Fabric, Juniper Networks, Nokia, Red Hat and VMware.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, February 15 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Registration is available at https://info.enterprisemanagement.com/the-future-of-data-center-network-automation-webinar-pr
