Sourcing data center connectivity is a costly, time-consuming manual process that often leads to delay-prone installations, subpar
network outcomes, and poor levels of support. Post-installation, staying on top of a diverse network footprint is difficult, leading to
missed renewal deadlines and challenges identifying service details when they're most needed. In 2023, networking teams should be automating away these pains with carrier-agnostic and unbiased sourcing software that can effectively identify network options, ensure lowest cost, and automate all procurement workflows from configuration to implementation and beyond.
