A recent study by Forrester revealed that enterprises have accelerated their adoption of cloud computing since the pandemic.
Indeed, it was reported that the pandemic led to an increased need for cloud technology, with business leaders realising the importance of cloud networks. Hence, IT leaders have started to focus their attention on optimising their investments in the cloud and thus, on cloud connectivity.
By doing so, IT leaders must make sure they can easily reach the cloud, all the while managing and connecting multiple clouds together in a secure, reliable, and cost-effective manner. The study showed that many businesses started to look to Network as a Service (NaaS) providers to provide expertise on cloud connectivity.
Indeed, NaaS providers offer network connectivity services to companies that can’t or don’t want to build their own infrastructure. It was reported that 62% of UK telecommunications technology decision-makers have stated that their firms have deployed NaaS solutions and 16% said they were planning to do so in the next 12 months.
Moreover, IT leaders have declared to already be seeing the benefits of NaaS by simplifying their IT network, creating a more flexible approach to IT, and mitigating risks of technology changes.
