l FACT SHEET l E N T E R P R I S E NETSCOUT Smart Edge Monitoring Numerous, concurrent enterprise business transformations have converged, leaving many information technology (IT) teams to report feeling they have "lost control." Atop these collective challenges are the Data Center Transformations and Hybrid Workforce Realities described in the subsections that follow. Data Center Transformations The Data Center Transformation projects described below are at times rolled out concurrently, frequently involving multiple enterprise locations. Cloud Migrations Private, public, hybrid, and multi-cloud services are deployed to address numerous digital transformation strategies, such as application and workload migrations. Many enterprises take advantage of multi-vendor strategies mixing AWS ® , Microsoft Azure ® , Google Cloud Platform ® , and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) services to reduce reliance on a single provider, improve geographic coverage for regional offices, access competitive pricing, and secure premium service level agreements (SLAs). The NETSCOUT Smart Edge Monitoring solution arms today's IT teams with a solution that delivers rapid troubleshooting and faster mean-time-to-remediate issues impacting remote users, with a combination of packet monitoring and synthetic testing in a single platform. "As-a-Service" Adoption Enterprise applications and services are moving out of the data center and onto "as-a-service" platforms, including software (SaaS), UC (UCaaS), Contact Centers (CCaaS), Desktop (DaaS), and Infrastructure (IaaS) solutions. With several of these services concurrently deployed across many enterprises, IT teams are again relying on multi-vendor solutions to support business services required by users, with some of these same third parties responsible for delivering reliable application performance in compliance with respective SLAs. Data Center Migrations Data center services are in the midst of an extended move to Co-located (Co-lo) and Carrier-Neutral Facility (CNF) environments, which offer the dual promises of cost containment and service efficiencies, but again involve migrating enterprise services from on-premises operations to trusted third-party (TTP) facilities. Software-Defined Network (SDN) Rollouts Enterprise IT teams are deploying SDN solutions like virtualized Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) network services provided by Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure SDN and VMware to take advantage of simplified management, micro-segmentation security, provisioning agility, and improved data center economics. Amid these benefits, IT teams need visibility into SDN-based virtual services to assure performance before, during, and after migration. Hybrid Workforce Realities Today's hybrid workforce realities represent a second, equally important transformation that IT needs to manage. Initially established as an organizational response to stay-at- home work orders, the hybrid workforce is here to stay for reasons that include: • Safety – Full on-premises workforce transitions will likely remain delayed until the healthcare impact of the pandemic subsides, with employees rotating back to corporate facilities according to controlled schedules (e.g., two weeks per month). • Investment – Enterprise investments and IT efforts have focused on assuring virtual private network (VPN), virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and software- defined wide area (SD-WAN) services that were procured, scaled, and tuned to provide reliable business service access to remote workers. Other solutions include cloud access security brokers (CASBs),
