The network, which is the backbone of an IT infrastructure estate, has proved to be one of the biggest challenges for optimizing enterprise digital transformation. Legacy networks lack the agility and business alignment required for a digital enterprise. The increase in on-demand services and introduction of new working models have further strained an already ailing network infrastructure. This has led enterprises to focus on transforming their networks to achieve the desired outcomes. COVID-19 has only reinforced the need for such a transformation. However, current network offerings are disparate across the enterprise network landscape and include the cloud, datacenter, Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN), and branch.

In this research, we share trends impacting the enterprise network services market and explore a new approach to achieve a unified network environment, which incorporates the entire network landscape through Network as-a-Service (NaaS). The report will help buyers understand the key network services trends impacting the market and introduce the overarching idea of a unified NaaS model. Service providers will benefit by aligning their strategies with these trends and supporting enterprises in their journeys to facilitate a unified NaaS model.
