The Role of Session Based SD WAN in an AI Driven Enterprise

Enterprises are increasingly looking for integrated security features to be built into their edge networking platform and not just bolted on. They're looking to prioritize end-user experience and to more holistically manage their WAN and LAN to leverage automated management and security efficiencies. Enterprises are gaining comfort with relying on the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and data science algorithms to enhance the automated management of the network, often referred to as AIOps.

This IDC Technology Spotlight explores trends driving the SD-WAN market and describes the evolution to the software-defined branch (SD-Branch) and a how session-based routing combines with an AI-enhanced management platform to ensure high levels of network performance and security as well as enhanced end-user experiences.
