Analyst Keynote: Building the SD-WAN Business Case (Nemertes Research)

Presented by

John Burke, Principal Analyst and CIO at Nemertes Research

About this talk

SD-WAN’s transformational potential is not enough. IT teams have to build a compelling business case for making the transition. Savings from MPLS is not the only avenue by which SD-WAN can drive ROI. By providing cheaper and more transparent and automatic failover when WAN links fail, SD-WAN can reduce branch WAN outages and troubleshooting costs by 90%. By working with multiple vendors and enterprises, Nemertes has developed and validated an SD-WAN cost model that enables enterprise users to build that business case base on multiple key factors. Join Principal Research Analyst and CIO John Burke of Nemertes Research as he presents his latest research findings. These include: - The cost-model applied to three real SD-WAN use cases - The process for identifying locations that could benefit from higher bandwidth, lower rates, increased reliability, or all three - The cost components of connectivity, capex, troubleshooting and more. - The comparison between Overlay SD-WAN and In-Net WAN
