  • SD-WAN for Retail: Simplifying Segmentation, Security, and Services
    SD-WAN for Retail: Simplifying Segmentation, Security, and Services Rachna Srivistava, Director Product Marketing Recorded: Feb 6 2018 34 mins
    The retail experience has become much more than just finding the product you're looking for in a store. Today, customers require much more: POS systems must always be online so credit cards can be scanned; Wi-Fi for internet browsing; in-store kiosks connected to online stores; and secured data for all. All this is dependent on a fast, secure, and dependable network with enough bandwidth to support all communications methods.

    In this webinar, we'll discuss how SD-WAN optimizes the overall retail experience, how segmentation ensures that traffic is prioritized and treated appropriately, and the entire process is secure at all times.
  • SD-WAN in Retail: Powering Security and Segmentation for Digital Transformation
    SD-WAN in Retail: Powering Security and Segmentation for Digital Transformation Parag Thakore, VP of Product Management; Fan Gu, Product Manager Recorded: Jan 10 2018 35 mins
    In the last ten years, the profile of network traffic has completely changed from the ten years before that. The internet of things (IoT), the variance and number of connected devices, video, images, voice, credit card data and payments processing, wifi, and much more has changed the requirements of what networks must support today.

    Retail, specifically, must support various types of network traffic and each must be treated differently, such as separating PCI traffic from guest wifi from voice. This is where segmentation plays a strategic role.

    This webinar will cover the following topics:
    - What is segmentation as it relates to SD-WAN.
    - Why segmentation matters in Retail, illustrated with use cases.
    - A live demonstration segmentation with SD-WAN.
  • A Customer Story - A WAN Strategy that Unifies the Enterprise and Enables Growth
    A Customer Story - A WAN Strategy that Unifies the Enterprise and Enables Growth Daan Muizer, Stolt-Nielsen & Ferran van den Berg, Videns Recorded: Dec 13 2017 61 mins
    With offices in 30+ countries, a de-centralized network infrastructure, and a company-wide migration to cloud applications, the existing mix of MPLS and internet across sites was hugely limiting to Stolt-Nielsen’s future growth strategies.

    Of major importance was moving to a platform that connected Stolt-Nielsen’s entire network to the same applications no matter where offices were located, guaranteeing that those applications were always accessible, and provided a high-quality experience for all users.
    Stolt-Nielsen was using Office365, Skype for Business, and file replication across the entire organization and wanted every user to have the same experience regardless of location. Stolt-Nielsen turned to VeloCloud Managed Service Provider, Videns, to re-think its network strategy and transform the WAN.

    In this webinar, Stolt-Nielsen and Videns discuss the benefits they were looking to achieve, what the alternative solution evaluation process looked like, and the results attained with a new infrastructure.
  • What the New Network Paradigm Will Be: Outcome-Driven Networking and SD-WAN
    What the New Network Paradigm Will Be: Outcome-Driven Networking and SD-WAN Bob Laliberte, Sr. Analyst, ESG and Rachna Srivastava, Sr. Director Product Marketing, VeloCloud Recorded: Dec 7 2017 53 mins
    Legacy network procedures and processes are traditionally focused on the individual steps required to implement change and initiate actions. Even with the automation of various steps within the process, there remains much investment of time and human resources to manually configure every activity.

    But as networks increase in complexity, especially with the transition to cloud-based applications and services, throwing manpower at the problem, is not scalable. Instead, organizations are adopting Cloud-DelIviered SD-WAN and as an extension, outcome-driven networking. With outcome-driven networking, organizations determine the outcome they need to deliver and allow the network intelligence and automation SD-WAN provides to revolutionize their IT teams and their businesses.

    In this webinar, ESG senior analyst, Bob Laliberte, introduces outcome-driven networking and why it is changing the network world, including:
    • Challenges faced by networks
    • The components of a robust outcome-driven networking approach
    • Key benefits to deploying an outcome-driven SD-WAN
    • ROI on implementing outcome-driven networking

  • DIY or Managed SD-WAN - Large Customer Deployments
    DIY or Managed SD-WAN - Large Customer Deployments Steve Woo, Co-found & VP Products Recorded: Nov 15 2017 45 mins
    Software-Defined networking has transformed data center networks and given us a taste of the greater flexibility, performance and potential savings in the move from fixed to agile networks.

    With a large number of of widely distributed sites or branches, a vast mix of vendors and deployed network equipment, decades of legacy platforms, and varying service quality over networks assembled from unpredictable connections, the traditional WAN infrastructure poses many challenges that can benefit even more so from the promise of SD-WAN.

    The pressure for a software defined WAN has also increased due to the shift to cloud computing. That’s where SD-WAN steps in to solve common issues, offering a wide range of benefits for your large organization. These range from equipment and circuit cost savings, to increased security and agility, to support for strategic business and architectural initiatives.

    As you consider available solutions, implementation partners and deployment architectures, the big question is whether to “Do It Yourself” or choose a “Managed SD-WAN.” This is not necessarily the same as choosing between an on-premises solution versus a solution with components hosted in the cloud.

    In this webinar, we’ll examine:
    * The various flavors of managed SD-WAN deployments: on-premises, cloud hosted or integrated with provider networks.
    * What are the relevant decision criteria for choosing one approach versus another?
    * Which deployment better supports the move to public cloud infrastructures and software as a service?
    * How to choose which solution is right for your business.

    Brooks Brothers: Delivering a Genuine White-Glove Retail Experience with SD-WAN Manny Stergakis, Director of Technical Services, Brooks Brothers Recorded: Nov 9 2017 41 mins
    The entire landscape of retail is undergoing a revolution and most notable are the in-store and network transformations needed to support this shift. With branch retail stores competing for every customer dollar, retailers must stay ahead of the curve of what these customers demand and deliver it as a seamless, valuable, and exceptional experience.

    In the third of our Retail Revolution series, we will host Brooks Brothers, a customer that has revolutionized the in-store experience and its network to continue to deliver to customers the exceptional white-glove experience they expect from the nearly 200 year old historic retailer. Brooks Brothers will discuss how SD-WAN enables them to be transaction-ready at all times, quickly deploy new retail branches, increase in-store sales, and gain unprecedented management, visibility and control across its entire network.

  • Transforming the Retail Experience with SD-WAN
    Transforming the Retail Experience with SD-WAN Zeus Kerravala, Principal Analyst & Founder Recorded: Oct 12 2017 46 mins
    Digital trends are transforming nearly every industry and retail is amongst the top industries to be impacted.

    The retail store front will remain the hub for omni-channel interactions with customers. Business leaders in retail need to prepare for a wide range of technologies such as in-store WiFi, digital signage, tablets, self-checkouts and others in addition to maintaining a 100% transaction uptime.

    All of these advanced technologies are highly dependent on the network, particularly the wide area network (WAN) for success. However, legacy WANs were never designed to support omni-channel interactions, which means evolving the WAN to a software defined WAN (SD-WAN) must be a top initiative for business and IT leaders in the retail industry.

    Join Zeus Kerravala, Principal Analyst and Founder of ZK Research as he discusses the changes in the retail industry, why legacy networks are challenged and provides practical advice on how to migrate to SD-WAN.
