Evaluate Enterprise collaboration Vendors & Products
Weigh the pros and cons of technologies, products and projects you are considering.
Enterprises aiming to improve their bottom line face a new API industry to help them achieve their goals. While in the past APIs were a nice thing to have, today they reach beyond technology and have become an integral business component.
In this API industry, organizations must be sure they are targeting internal and external developers, incorporating APIs into their digital strategy and collaborating with vendors to meet business needs. In this edition of Network Evolution, we explore how the API industry is helping enterprises seek better ways to reach their audiences and fulfill business needs.
We also examine how network infrastructure is facing its own shifting landscape. Enterprises are looking at ways to borrow the best hyperscale techniques of massive networks built by the likes of Google and Amazon to enhance their own infrastructure design. There's even a name for the smaller enterprises building effective designs on a smaller scale: Meet the new "webscaler."

Software-defined networking gets all the headlines, but there's another trend gaining traction in future networks: software-based networking. Enterprises are increasing their reliance on software -- rather than manual coding -- to automate tasks ranging from switch configuration to making it easy for a teacher to use her school's wireless network to give a presentation. In this edition of Network Evolution, we examine some of the steps organizations are taking to exploit the benefits of software-based networks. It's not just allowing IT staff to be more productive; it's saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars in future network expenses.
Also in this issue, we take a look at shadow IT. It might have a bad reputation, but some IT departments are finding unexpected upsides when users download and run their own software on the enterprise network. In today's app-store culture, keeping shadow IT in check is increasingly difficult. This feature highlights different approaches that help IT craft enlightened shadow IT policies and explores different approaches to unsanctioned app use that take security requirements and enterprise goals into account.
