Post-Pandemic Networking: Enabling the Work-From-Anywhere Enterprise


Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, working from home was a perk for employees. During the pandemic, it became essential to business continuity. Today, 85% of enterprises believe that the pandemic has permanently increased the number of employees who will work from home (WFH) regularly.

New Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) research reveals how IT organizations are evolving network infrastructures and operations to support a work-from-anywhere enterprise, where end users can be productive at home, in the corporate office, or anywhere else.

During this webinar, Shamus McGillicuddy, vice president of research at EMA, will share insights from the new research report “Post-Pandemic Networking: Enabling the Work-From-Anywhere Enterprise,” based on one-on-one interviews and an online survey of more than 300 IT professionals.

Attend and discover:

  • How network teams are modifying their network monitoring and troubleshooting tools to support end users who work from home. Ninety-six percent of IT organizations have allocated budget for this task.
  • Why 75% of network teams are installing network hardware in the home offices of some end users.
  • Why 61% of network teams are increasing their investments in local area network infrastructures despite the surge in WFH.
  • Why 59% of network teams are increasing their investments in software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) for connecting corporate sites.
