Headlines have been dominated by news of tech layoffs with the technology sector hit the hardest. There is a consensus that an economic contraction is on the horizon. An astute leader prepares for this possibility, no matter how well their company is doing.
For those who have been through this before, we know that while resources will be flat or reduced, service expectations will remain the same or intensify. IT is the lifeline of the business. Leaders are already losing sleep over preventing outages and keeping the network secure, and now they are facing the daunting possibility of having to do more with less.
In most instances, there isn’t a single solution. People need retraining, priorities must be shifted, and some projects may need to be abandoned. However, this potential contraction is different for IT shops because a game-changing technology is now available that will help NetOps, SecOps, and Cloud Teams save immense amounts of time and money.
Digital Twin technology creates a single source of truth for the network. The Forward Networks digital twin is the only platform on the market based on a mathematical model capable of scaling to support global enterprises with tens of thousands of devices.
By creating a digital index of the network and parsing and analyzing the data, Forward Enterprise makes asking questions of your network as easy as making a search engine query. The data is presented in a vendor-agnostic manner, empowering early career engineers to quickly diagnose issues and route them to the appropriate team for resolution with detailed information. As a result, customers report outage reductions of 90% and a reduction of MTTR from a mean of 4 days to <5 minutes.
This vital topic deserves thoughtful discussion, so we invited Andre Kindness, principal analyst at Forrester, to join us for a live discussion on BrightTALK. We are looking forward to your questions. Andre will give his perspective on the top three things IT shops should be doing to prepare and how to use digital twin technology for the most impact.
