How to prevent network downtime in the modern enterprise

Today's enterprise network finds itself under unprecedented strain, with the number of connected devices and "things" increasing and end-user expectations of speed and performance growing. Meanwhile, as IT professionals strive to offer the latest and greatest technological services to customers, network resources don't always keep pace. Something has to give.

Such a scenario is ripe for significant, unscheduled network downtime, and in the digital age, these outages come at large scale and enormous cost. Enterprises that have recently experienced major network downtime -- such as Delta Airlines and Salesforce -- have lost millions of dollars and suffered incalculable blows to their brands and reputations. Organizations simply can't afford outages like these in today's digital-first business environment. In this edition of Network Evolution, we explore the dynamics of the modern outage, and how enterprises can minimize their risk of network downtime.

Also in this issue, we take a look at evolving automation tools and how they can make network managers' lives easier. And finally, we'll tell you what you need to know about Cisco's new digital whiteboard, Spark Board, and how it stacks up against Microsoft's Surface Hub.
