Businesses are rapidly moving their applications to the cloud to accelerate agility, improve security, enable mobility, and minimize demand on IT resources. As a result, organizations are revisiting their WANs to ensure they are optimized for an increasingly PaaS/IaaS/SaaS world.

Enterprises need to carefully evaluate legacy investments and begin to develop hybrid or pure-cloud migration strategies to better support their business communications.

Many organizations are considering adopting SD-WAN to reduce costs, increase resiliency, and improve application performance.

Analyst firm Nemertes’ 2016–17 Cloud, Data Center, and SD-WAN benchmark and previous studies found that:

  • 75% of companies are now using public infrastructure as a service
  • Nearly half are using platform as a service
  • SaaS comprises approximately a quarter of the typical enterprise set of applications

RingCentral recently sponsored a white paper and webinar by Nemertes that provides the latest trends, stats, and details to help you develop the strategies that will satisfy current communications demands and also future proof your system down the road.
