Most of the big networking headaches didn’t turn up overnight; they started small and increased in complexity over time, as the network grew and evolved. Without detailed actionable data, these problems can be nearly impossible to solve; at the very least it can take weeks, months, or even years to rid a global network of a pervasive issue.
Nobody has time for that, which is where a digital twin comes in. A digital twin is a software copy of the network with all the data in one place, enabling the ability to trace all possible paths, locate any device, and integrate with other useful tools such as IT service management, network automation, and vulnerability scanning to put people back in control of the network. This technology delivers answers to complex networking questions in seconds while presenting them in a vendor-agnostic and actionable manner, ensuring network and security operations teams are able to immediately make data driven decisions.
Our co-Founder and CTO, Brandon Heller, is giving a live demo on July 20, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific to show how in 5 days or less, a digital twin can solve your toughest problems by empowering engineers to ask the network questions. He’ll provide real-world examples of how global companies have used a digital twin to:

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.
