How DDI Solutions for Healthcare Elevate Network Automation

Network reliability is a critical necessity in the healthcare sector as it directly impacts patient care. The industry grapples with the challenges of maintaining seamless connectivity for essential services, simplifying multi-cloud and IoT management, and ensuring anywhere access to confidential patient data. Network modernization is vital to dealing with this complex scenario, with network automation being crucial for efficient deployment and management of network resources and security policies. Key to automation is a Network Source of Truth (NSoT) and secure,...

Top 5 Trends: Network Automation and Security in 2024

2023 turned out to be another interesting year for Network and Security teams. With the worrying geo-political situation affecting supplies and costs, and network complexity rising, organizations struggled to keep control of their IT architectures. Two important concerns continued to rise. Poor visibility over IT network activity has made them increasingly difficult to manage, and cybercriminals are launching more increasingly-sophisticated attacks, often exploiting DNS. So to take back control over network operations in 2024, observability, network automation and DNS Threat...

How DDI Helps Higher Education Surf the Network Automation Wave

University networks are increasingly burdened with new technologies and security concerns brought with the explosion of mobile devices and applications. At the same time, network administrators are becoming overwhelmed by privacy and compliance requirements, while also trying to meet student expectations for high performance and always-on connectivity. With limited budget and resources, the only way to cope is by adopting networking automation. Core to this are data insights, open APIs, and Network Source of Truth (NSoT). For advancing network automation...

How DDI Helps Telcos Move Their Network Automation Forward

With ever complexifying networks, multi-cloud adoption, stricter regulations, explosion of IoT, and new services introduced by Private 5G, telcos and ISPs are turning to network automation for improving operational agility and efficiency. At the heart of this is trusted data (Network Source of Truth), open APIs, and DDI. The new IDC 2023 Network Automation report explains drivers, inhibitors, benefits seen, and why DNS-DHCP-IPAM (DDI) is an obvious starting point for enabling zero touch operations. Why is the Telecom Sector Turning...

IDC 2023 Network Automation Report: Why DDI is an Obvious Starting Point

Enterprises are adopting new strategies to create value, achieve cost savings, and improve efficiency in the face of an uncertain economic outlook.  Network automation has emerged as a top strategy to provide IT teams with the flexibility and agility required to adapt to changing business needs, deliver business goals, and accelerate digital transformation. However, full automation of network processes is a gradual process that requires starting small then iterating with broader initiatives to increase maturity level.   IDC’s 2023 Global...

Why DDI APIs Matter to Network Automation

Open APIs are essential to enable IT modernization required by digital business transformation. By unleashing actionable data and metadata on DNS, DHCP, IPAM, and built-in Network Source of Truth (NSoT), DDI APIs play a central role to deliver critical use cases in network automation and security. This allows NetOps, DevOps, and NetSecOps teams to reap tangible benefits very quickly. APIs are a catalyst of IT modernization Collaboration is key. Many would agree that working together has great power. As we...

Use DDI to Jumpstart Network Automation in a Cisco Environment

Why Network Automation is Needed Besides economically driven reasons, digital-transformation strategies are still a prime reason to perform Network Automation in general. The main goals here are to improve efficiency and flexibility to increase productivity. The challenges aimed to be solved are in the areas of cost, visibility and change, in order to maximize return on investments. As Gartner puts it: “… by 2024, organizations will lower operational costs by 30% by combining automation technologies with redesigned operational processes …”...

Enhancing Visibility & Control Over Google Cloud Platform with IPAM Sync

Today, workloads are deployed on in-house DC or Public Cloud (Hybrid Cloud) or even in various Public Cloud Providers (MultiCloud). This brings new challenges for Netops and SecOps teams to build an accurate and consolidated Visibility on the Hybrid Cloud and Multicloud Infrastructures they are in charge of, so they require a Network Source of Truth (NSoT) for administration, operations and security purposes. An IPAM is meant for planification and reference purposes. It is used as a blueprint of the...

3 DDI Ways to Improve your Network Automation Journey

When tasked with rolling out new network infrastructure in hundreds or even thousands of retail stores to support the digital transformation initiative of his company, imagine what the Infrastructure Director of a worldwide retail brand has to plan for. The DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) components would likely come last or even not be considered at all. In addition to the design of the new network infrastructure matching the Digital Transformation goals, the technical assessment of the readiness of each site, the logistics,...
