Traditional networking has been a barrier to alignment between I&O and application developers. While developers have embraced continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) processes and other agile means to expedite development workflows, they are inhibited by reliance on their organizations’ less agile network infrastructure.

Modern applications are highly dynamic, driving a need for greater automated intelligence and agility in network infrastructure throughout the application and network life cycle.
