Cloud adoption is still the "most vexing factor" in increased network

complexity, according to a new report by Kentik.


														
							

The report, based on a poll of 203 IT professionals attending the Cisco Live 2017 annual conference, says cloud adoption is followed by IoT, SDN, and networks functions virtualization (NFV).

It also says that most organizations still aren’t ready for network automation, even though machine learning is seen as “important technology for network management.”

More than a third (36 percent) of respondents said cloud adds the greatest network complexity to their organizations. They can still improve operational visibility for cloud and digital business networking, it was added.

According to the report, organizations need to be able to spot DDoS attacks better. A third (32 percent) said they’re using DDoS detection technology.

The majority of organizations (70 percent) says using the same stack of tools to manage both network performance and security hinders operational efficiency. More than half (59 percent), however, added that their organization is not yet using the same stack of tools.
