This SD-WAN ebook will help you show your colleagues why a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) should be the next step for your network.

You understand the reasons for transitioning your network management to SD-WAN. But others in your organization may not.

That’s why we wrote this eBook: to help you make the case for SD-WAN for your company. We’ve made it easy by laying out the arguments a number of different ways.

First you’ll read about the specific problems and challenges SD-WAN helps address, like needing to boost network performance across multiple locations. Then you’ll find the money-based argument—why SD-WAN makes sense financially. For example, by lowering the cost of bandwidth, and minimizing your upfront investment for a network solution tailored to your business environment.

After that you can read a long list of the benefits of SD-WAN. More reliable services and applications for your users, and easily scaling to meet changing demand, to mention just a couple. You’ll even find arguments tailored to specific stakeholders you need to convince: The CIO, finance leaders and IT teams. Finally, you’ll get some effective responses you can use to overcome common objections to making the switch to SD-WAN.

After reading this eBook, you’ll be more prepared to convince the naysayers or fence-sitters in your company that the time is right to make the change to SD-WAN.
