New EMA and Auvik Research Reveals Significant Lack of Confidence in Network Operations
New research by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Auvik, an award-winning provider of cloud-based network management software, revealed organizations' confidence in their network operations groups has dwindled amid staffing shortages and network data quality issues.
According to the newly released 2022 Network Management Megatrends Report, just 27% of organizations believe their network operations groups are completely successful - down from 35% in 2020 and 49% in 2016. The decline comes at a time of rapid change, with the proliferation of new IoT technologies and a shift to cloud-first amid hybrid work needs.
"Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we've seen organizations take steps to make their network operations more agile and efficient, but this latest data shows they need to go a step further to empower network teams," said Alex Hoff, Chief Product Officer and co-founder, Auvik. "Companies are experiencing a double-edged sword as both their networks and network operations teams are increasingly stretched. It's critical for organizations to have access to network management solutions that can help them meet new challenges in this constantly changing IT environment."
Additional findings from the report include:
The research, based on a March 2022 survey of over 400 network infrastructure and operations professionals and conversations with networking professionals from Fortune 500 companies, provides insight into the state and evolution of network operations. Additional sponsors of the report include Broadcom, NetScout, Park Place Technologies, Progress, and SolarWinds.
