Firms are under growing pressure to transform into digital enterprises. Just consider that nearly 10% of U.S. firms expect to have an application provisioned in one day or less using cloud services. Or that enterprises need to respond to more event-driven situations, such as real-time price competition, product recalls, and cyberattacks. In addition to forcing enterprises to reevaluate the types of outsourced and managed services they consume, these types of market pressures are forcing service providers and outsourcers to make fundamental changes in their capabilities and offerings.
This Web conference will use the IDC MaturityScape framework to evaluate the buyer evolution in utilizing managed digital services (including cloud, mobile, social, analytics, IoT, and cognitive) as well as the expectations that buyers will have of their service providers when it comes to helping them become mature users of these services.

In this webinar, we will discuss and compare the benefits of both a DIY SD-WAN and Managed SD-WAN approach.
Enterprises rely on the WAN for connectivity between branches, data centers and clouds. The complexity of the WAN has grown and with-it management and operations. Many enterprise businesses look to SD-WAN to solve their connectivity and complexity woes.
Is the simplicity and automation that comes with SD-WAN enough to reduce the current complexity many enterprise IT operators are facing?
With many services now being offered as-a-Service (XaaS) the thought of moving WAN management to a managed services model is being evaluated for enterprise businesses across all verticals.

SD-WANs have become very popular because they solve current business challenges while leveraging new SDN, NFV, orchestration and cloud technologies. Enterprises have been building SD-WANs for several years but prefer to have a service provider manage the service for them rather than build and operate it themselves. Service providers are challenged to quickly introduce new SD-WAN managed services due to the lack of standardization of service definitions and architectures. Today, SD-WANs come in all types and flavors. In this webinar, you will learn about the MEF's SD-WAN standardization work and different use cases from the perspective of two SD-WAN managed service providers (MSPs) with different delivery models. The webinar will discuss the market drivers and business benefits for SD-WAN managed services and how MEF standardization of SD-WAN services using the LSO reference architecture could address current operational challenges to accelerate service delivery.Read more >
SD-WANs enable enterprises to easily use multiple types of network services (MPLS, broadband, LTE) to simultaneously connect users to applications, quickly bring branch offices online and improve overall network and application performance.
But, finding the right SD-WAN solution for your business can take time. Many enterprises are looking towards managed SD-WAN as a solution to simplify branch network deployments and find the best fit for their business.
In this webinar, Frost & Sullivan analyst, Roopa Honnachari will share new industry data on managed SD-WAN and will host a discussion between Silver Peak and Masergy experts as they share insights on how managed services can enable enterprises to adopt SD-WAN in a seamless manner.
Come with questions and join our live Q&A session.

In today's fast-changing data climate, reliance on IT is growing. But for many businesses, so too is the scarcity of resources needed to support their increasingly complex IT environments. The result is that every chosen IT endeavor comes at the cost of another.
One endeavor with a particularly steep tradeoff is integration. The data transfer and transformation processes that are the foundation of integration require considerable IT overhead to develop and maintain. And while these operations are critical to your organization's well being, they provide no strategic business value in and of themselves.
But organizations don't have to choose between cutting-edge integration and their next big innovations. In this webinar, you'll discover how partnering with a managed services integration provider relieves the pressure of resource scarcity and provides an abundance of other benefits to boot, including:
•Breathing room to focus on strategic activities—not tactical execution
•Predictable costs that scale with usage—and reflect the economies of scale afforded by the cloud
•Minimization of risk due to provider's proven ability to execute
•Effective management of multi-endpoint integration partners
•The breakdown of data silos to enable data management and Big Data capabilities
The importance of protecting sensitive data is gaining visibility at the C-level and the Boardroom. It’s a difficult task, made even more so by the shortage of security experts. One option that more and more companies are pursuing is the use of managed security services. This can enable them to employ sophisticated technologies and processes to detect security incidents in a cost-effective manner. Should managed security be a component of your security mix?
In this webinar, Ed Ferrara of Forrester and Mark Stevens of Digital Guardian will discuss:
When does it make sense to utilize managed security services
How to the scope the services your company contracts out
Questions to ask when evaluating managed security services providers
The key criteria for selecting managed security providers
