The issue of network baseline arose quite some time ago. Everything started from the understanding that networks are not static entities, but are a set of elements that change over time.

Our customers are experiencing challenges today with managing complex network architectures like SDN, SD-WAN and NFV to deliver an innovative, reliable and responsive digital experience. Cost is one major challenge. It is expensive to run network operations today and requires many personnel to architect, monitor, understand patterns and triage these new architectures. Recent studies show that an enterprise loses an average of $9k every minute during a data center outage.
