Going to the cloud means teams actually need more network, more provisioning, more routers, more switches, and the complexity of that environment is going up significantly. “You are  seeing a much larger burden on the NetOps teams. You’ve got to raise the bar from a Security perspective that’s impacting NetOps teams and the provisioning of those services are getting much more complicated. So you’re finding a day in the life of a NetOps person becoming much more difficult than it was even just a few years ago,” says Ernest Lefner, Chief Product Officer at Gluware.
