Network Engineering and Operations in a Multi-Cloud World


Enterprise network engineers and architects are essential to cloud transformation. As companies migrate applications to the public cloud, network teams must assess networking requirements, specify policy, recommend architecture, establish connectivity, monitor costs, and assure performance. However, the tools and processes that network engineers and architects have relied upon for decades are designed for a pre-cloud world. Today’s hybrid and multi-cloud architectures require network infrastructure teams to transform themselves.

Leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has published a new research report “Network Engineering and Operations in a Multi-Cloud World.” This report is based on a survey of 250 enterprise IT decision-makers with direct involvement in their cloud networking strategy and several one-on-one interviews with network architects and IT executives.

Join Shamus McGillicuddy, research director at EMA, for a webinar that will explore the results of this research, including:

  • Cloud Networking Assessments: How do enterprises assess the networking requirements of applications migrating to the cloud?
  • Hybrid cloud and multi-cloud connectivity: How do enterprises establish this connectivity and what challenges inhibit their success?
  • Cloud compliance: How do network teams support cloud compliance?
  • Cost management: How do enterprise monitor and manage cloud networking costs?
  • Cloud network assurance: What data do network teams collect? What tools are delivering value? Where are their blind spots?
  • Management tool strategies: Are incumbent network management tool vendors addressing enterprise requirements in the cloud? Do native monitoring solutions offered by cloud providers offer value?
