Data-Driven
Change Initiatives

Approaching any IT roll-out must be done with a proper data-driven strategy. Before implementing a significant data-driven change initiative, it’s important to identify key baseline performance metrics to understand if and how the new technology impacts the overall performance of the network.

How It Works

Performance Baselining

Approaching any IT roll-out must be done with a proper data-driven strategy. Before implementing a significant data-driven change initiative, it’s important to identify key baseline performance metrics to understand if and how the new technology impacts the overall performance of the network.

Deployment Audit and Validation

It is incredibly important to capture audited data at each step of the deployment. During the roll-out, perform on-going deployment audits against the baseline and policy validation to ensure the network is successfully supporting the new initiative. The completed operation must be monitored closely to prevent any unforeseen issues that may impact the network.

Ongoing Operations

Once the new initiative is in place, continue to monitor the network performance to ensure the ongoing operations of new IT or network elements continue to meet and achieve their SLAs. Being mindful of data analytics will assist measuring performance baselines against previously deployed processes within the network.

Use Cases for Data-driven Change Initiatives

Change leaders must advocate the importance of a data-driven culture within the enterprise. This will be paramount when ensuring technology improvements are rolled out successfully and on-time in order to mitigate the risks to the successful execution of the broader strategy.

Infrastructure initiatives such as a migration to public cloud or SD-WAN are frequently done as a replacement of existing infrastructure. It is critical to monitor the before, during, and after performance metrics of all network elements involved. The goal is to ensure that these deployed processes and phased rollouts have not created unaccounted for negative impacts.

LiveAction’s solutions provide the time-based analysis of network performance to enable management teams to report on any deviations in performance that occur as a result of the rollout.

Change Initiative Products:

SD-WAN Deployments

SD-WAN initiatives promise significant savings and increased performance in comparison to traditional WAN technologies. The dynamic SD-WAN environment will presents new challenges for network performance management.

Cloud Migration

Moving network and application workloads to the cloud offer organizations to dynamically scale their infrastructure. The challenge for cloud environments is to achieve the same level of performance visibility from an on-premise environment.

See It In Action

Watch these videos to see how network operations teams follow a data-driven approach to their IT rollout with LiveAction.

Using LiveNX, network teams are able to identify key pilot sites, baseline current network performance, monitor ongoing performance for any deviation cause by the new technology, and continue to perform continuous monitoring for ongoing operations post-rollout.
