SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Juniper Networks, a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today released the first edition of the State of Network Automation Report (SoNAR). With this report, Juniper aims to identify key trends and challenges to support enterprises and service providers in achieving increasingly business-critical automation objectives.
“The networking industry has seen decades of progress in the technology and tools that enable automation but despite becoming increasingly business critical, adoption continues to be a challenge,” said Sumeet Singh, VP of Engineering at Juniper Networks. “At Juniper, we know that, while imperative, broad automation adoption will require enterprises to embark on transformational journeys that go well beyond products and technology. Through resources like SoNAR, EngNet and NRE Labs we aim to provide the guidance enterprises need to succeed in this journey.”
SoNAR is the result of in-depth surveying with 400 independent IT decision makers and offers a broad view into the industry’s challenges and opportunities. This independent research shows that 96% of enterprises are taking a few steps toward automation, yet most are just beginning with only 8% of respondents stating they have been automating for more than four years. While the broad interest in automation is promising, it also shows how far the industry still has to go.
Additional key findings include:
Automation is quickly becoming a critical, foundational element of the network as enterprises focus on multicloud, rapid application development and deployment, software-defined everything and much more. Yet most enterprises are still grappling with the challenges that this transition brings. Juniper’s focus is on helping enterprises on this journey through product and services addressing this need, as well as broader industry resources like SoNAR.
