The retail business network is complex to operate with multiple network segments per store requiring both compliance with PCI and supporting WiFi guests. Multiple WAN technologies per site (LTE and MPLS) make operations even more complex as they all have to work with local WiFi and switching. As a retail outlet quickly rolls out new applications for its other branch store, the operating costs of the network and the difficult change management that has an impact on agility are becoming major concerns.

Brand management for any retail business is essential. Brands are competing with each other as part of a larger retail group to attract customers. Each brand follows an aggressive growth plan within this parent company, including the rapid opening of new branch stores. Each brand will seize its own IT decisions, while the parent company will empower them with standardized solutions. Local Internet breakout management is challenging operationally. The pressing challenge is to simplify branch connectivity, particularly those with internet breakouts, and faster delivery sites.

Some of the major companies profiled in the report include Silver Peak, Inc., Cloudgenix Inc., Nuage Networks, Talari Networks, Inc., VeloCloud Networks, Inc., Fatpipe Networks Inc., Versa Networks, Inc., Viptela, Inc., Riverbed Technology, Inc., and Citrix Systems, Inc. among others.
