Business are increasing cloud applications, but not the quality of their enterprise networks. SD-WAN can help.

In this whitepaper, Cavell and VMware (VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud) have partnered to crystallise the Service Provider opportunity for SD-WAN. We lay out the primary reasons for the growth of SD-WAN as a technology and the need that it fills, backed up by some Cavell Enterprise Research that highlights and reinforces these positions. This demonstrates that overall, the main issue that businesses are currently having is that the amount of cloud applications they are using has increased, but the quality of enterprise network has not. Enterprise networks are facing challenges not only with application management, but also with managing direct access and bandwidth demands. In this paper, we address these changes and how SD-WAN can help as well as how it offers numerous ways to add to and increase revenue streams
