The pandemic has highlighted the need for intent-based networking, particularly for automating IT and network operations so that organizations can function at the speed that modern businesses demand. Recognizing the urgent need to transform networks, California startup Gluware rolled out a next-generation, cloud-delivered intent-based network automation platform Gluware 4.0.
The need for intent-based, intelligent networking was catalyzed by the rapid shift to remote work. And as organizations refocus on the return to work alongside a now more widely distributed workforce, intent-based networking can deliver the all-encompassing benefits of intelligent automation – decreased time to value, efficiency gains, and the removal of manual, error-prone network maintenance and management processes across vast multi-domain enterprise environments.
Modern business operations are increasingly relying on internet-facing devices dedicated to specific business functions, thereby increasing the number of endpoints and the complexity associated with it. A PwC research noted 57% of organizations plan to implement flexible work schedules, which will significantly alter the network fabric. This will require intelligent networking as a core operational function for agility, performance, and security.
This is an area that California-headquartered startup Gluware is transforming with its next-generation, cloud-delivered intent-based network automation platform — Gluware 4.0. The platform packs an expanded feature set to help any sized network team automate the management, maintenance, and security of increasingly complex, mission-critical enterprise networks.
Talking about network operations in the COVID-19 era, Jeff Gray, CEO and co-founder of Gluware reveals never has the need for intent-based automation been greater. “We are still at the very early stages of industry-wide adoption of intent-based automation, which leaves substantial room for emerging applications and continued innovation,” he says.
