With the start of the new year, many people take the time to think about the changes we want to make – the habits and routines we want to start or stop. Usually our end goal is to make our lives more efficient and healthier.

Similarly, according to our recent research, IT leaders are also looking for efficiencies and rethinking the way their teams network. They are reassessing the core value of computing. Many are looking to reduce the load on their IT teams to focus on more innovative projects that enable the business. Some are very interested in exploring the potential of an emerging network model, Network as a Service (NaaS). NaaS promises to reduce the burden of network lifecycle management, while providing IT with continuous access to the latest technologies.
