There are many ways a digital twin can make enterprise networks more secure, agile, and reliable. Actually, there are more ways than we envisioned when we came up with the technology and we’re constantly learning from our customers.

Guru Ramamoorthy, VP, Global Head of Network Architecture, Engineering, & Operations at S&P Global, shared how his company uses Forward Enterprise to leverage the data in his company network to help their developers during a keynote presentation at ONUG. S&P Global is a leading provider of financial industry data, including rating indices, benchmark analytics, and data for capital and commodity markets. The company operates 100 offices, 51 data centers for multi-cloud providers, and 37,000 employees to deliver that essential intelligence to over 100 countries.

As a company dedicated to providing insightful data that drives meaningful decisions, S&P Global understands the value of providing access to information. However, the information developers needed to be efficient was inaccessible, making it more challenging to develop and provision new applications.

At Fall ONUG ‘22, Guru gave a keynote speech where he explained how his team uses Forward Enterprise to make network data universally accessible and useful while sharing some of the benefits they’ve reaped and their modern approach of federating IT.

Developers don't have to learn networking; they use the Forward Enterprise digital twin to provide them with insightful information so they can make informed decisions without having to wait for responses from busy team members. Moreover, making this data accessible frees up engineers who were, in his words, “supplying the same information again and again and again and again.”

As many people are aware, S&P Global merged with IHS Markit. By relying on their digital twin, they integrated the networks in under six months; the same work would have taken them years using previous tools and methodology.

Guru also discusses how Forward Enterprise helped his team accelerate cloud migrations. The company has always been in the cloud and has migrated several hundred applications. In his keynote presentation, he shares how Forward Networks accelerates the cloud journey.

ONUG Spring 2022 is in the books. What a great event! Being able to meet with networking experts in person feels like such a treat after everything we’ve been through. The best thing about ONUG events is the cornucopia of informational sessions. Even if you were there, you probably didn’t get to go to all the sessions you wanted to attend. I know our team didn’t!

In case you missed them, I wanted to point to two sessions that we hosted; both of which received very positive feedback from on-site attendees.

Our Senior Director of Product and UX, Natale Ruello, hosted a Proof of Concept session demonstrating how our customers use Forward Enterprise to verify their security posture in hybrid multi-cloud environments.

Additionally, Joshua Matheus, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, gave a keynote presentation highlighting how Goldman has reduced application delivery time to under an hour and how his team is using a digital twin to make their network more reliable, agile, and secure.

We are already looking forward to our next set of events this season, RSA (June 6 – 9 in San Francisco, CA) and Cisco Live (June 12 – 16 in Las Vegas, Nevada). Will we see you there?

In the meantime, stay current with our platform via our BrightTALK Channel with new educational sessions every month.
