Guido Kragten, Aruba Sales Enablement Cloud Platforms, EMEA
Businesses of all sizes are investing in cloud, mobile, and IoT technology that will push their IT teams and networks to deliver great experiences to employees, customers, guests, and students and gain a competitive advantage. Limited resources, time, and training continue to be a major barrier to meeting the challenges of today’s modern digital experiences. Historically the conservative risk-averse nature of network administrators has ensured networks remain up and running. But a continued resistance to new tools (e.g. centralized, consolidated management), methods (e.g. automation), and innovations (e.g. AIOps) will inhibit the necessary progress needed for network administrators to meet the demands of modern business.
IT organizations are choosing to manage their infrastructure from the cloud. The cloud not only provides global network device visibility and access to data, but it also simplifies deployment and frees IT from maintaining the infrastructure required to host and maintain applications. For IT organizations seeking to deliver modern digital experiences at the convergence of people, applications, and things, Aruba Central is the only unified cloud-based platform for delivering network management, AI-powered analytics, user-centric service assurance, and security for wired, Wi-Fi, and SD-WAN networks to simplify IT operations and deliver modern digital experiences.
