In the 11th Annual State of the Network Global Study over 600 IT professionals reveal their biggest challenges, key initiatives, and top reasons for moving to the cloud.

In this year’s study we see hybrid IT investments driven primarily by a greater need for agility and flexibility, rather than the expected fiscal concerns. Applications are increasingly moving to the cloud and more users are logging on remotely. All while the responsibility to monitor service availability and performance of resources still overwhelmingly falls to network teams.

With data projected through 2020, the study shows IT enterprise organizations supporting a combination of internal and external cloud resources orchestrated and managed as a unified hybrid infrastructure. As visibility into cloud resources remains a challenge, teams will struggle to deliver on the promise of anytime, anywhere connectivity.
