ET Bureau: Why is intelligent network automation so important to enterprises in today’s economy?
Jeff Gray: Enterprises in today’s economy are often faced with two main challenges – delivering on core business needs in a cost and talent-efficient manner and migrating to the cloud as part of their digital transformation efforts.
