Using it, administrators are more equipped with deep understandings and meaningful insights to plan capacity and dimension their complex networks. Network Analytics reveals crucial information about hidden bottlenecks and other network design issues that can choke traffic and impede productivity. Network analytics from the cloud can help organizations track performance and make more accurate capacity planning decisions for commissioning and decommissioning of cloud resources based on dynamic usage requirements. With the emergence of IoT and similar technologies, there is an urgent need to include network analytics for organizations to stay ahead of their competition.
