IDC on Enterprise SD-WAN Drivers

What drives SD-WAN deployments in enterprise? According to a global IDC survey, the answer includes bandwidth optimisation, consistent application security, integration with existing WANs, and improved automation and self-provisioning.

SD-WANs leverage hybrid WANs but incorporate a centralised, application-based policy controller, analytics for application and network visibility and security, a software overlay to abstract underlying networks and optional routing capability providing intelligent path selection across WAN links. It provides means to optimise cloud/SaaS applications while providing a dynamic and secure WAN fabric for distributed enterprises.

The survey covers current and future enterprise plans for SD-WAN infrastructure and services. It suggests increased confidence in emerging SD-WAN architectures, as well as the further embrace of SD-WAN across enterprise and service providers, leading to infrastructure and services revenues worth $8 billion by 2021.

IDC: Branch Requirements Boost SD-WAN Market

IDC: Branch Requirements Boost SD-WAN Market

According to IDC software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) represent a major opportunity, with the global market set to grow at a CAGR of 69.6% and reach $8.5 billion in 2021.

SD-WAN leverages hybrid WAN, and adds a centralised, application-based policy controller, analytics for application and network visibility, a secure software overlay (abstracts underlying networks) and an optional SD-WAN forwarder (routing capability). It allows for cost-effective application delivery, meeting the needs of modern branch/remote sites, optimising software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud-based services, and improving branch-IT efficiency through automation.

The "most significant" SD-WAN driver for the 5-year forecast period is digital transformation (DX), or the deployment of 3rd platform technologies such as cloud, big data, mobility and social business. DX increases network workloads and elevates the end-to-end importance of networks to business operations. The increased use of public cloud-based SaaS applications is another growth driver, since SD-WAN is increasingly leveraged to provide dynamic connectivity optimisation and path selection in a policy-driven, centrally distributed network architecture.
