When trying to improve the Office 365 end-user experience, the measurement of the benefit of network or route to the cloud optimization projects is tricky. This customer was assessing the opportunity and the cost/benefits of deploying SD-WAN at many of their sites.

After 15 deployments, IT management asked for a return on investment study but without accurate data regarding the end-user experience, it was impossible to deliver.

  • After deploying GSX Gizmo:
    • IT could clearly assess the end-user benefit of their network or infrastructure initiatives by comparing the service quality with and without the change.
    • 10 out of 15 sites benefited from the SD-WAN deployment with an increase of 20% in Office 365 performance. For 5 other sites, the cost/ benefit ratio was too low and they decided to roll it back and find another way to improve the end-user experience.
