  • Rising security threats

Networks need to cover multiple hosting environments, fixed and mobile devices, as well as other forms of IT infrastructure, in order to keep business applications, data, and services constantly available from any location in a modern and globalised digital world. But they are also a source of increased risk, just as networks are an essential enabling factor for businesses.

  • The lack of skilled professional workers is a problem.

Impact of Economic Slowdown:

The challenges arising from the slowdown, the network automation market has shown resilience and continued growth. Increasing adoption of cloud computing and growing demand for virtualisation are key factors leading to this growth. On the positive side, there's been a notable reduction in costs as companies prioritize cost-cutting measures during economic slowdowns. Network automation has played a significant role in this, alleviating IT staff workload through the automation of repetitive tasks, thus resulting in potential staff reductions or redeployments and subsequent cost savings. Moreover, automation has increased efficiency by streamlining network operations, reducing human error, and enhancing network performance, ultimately leading to heightened productivity and allowing IT teams to concentrate on strategic initiatives. However, on the negative side, economic downturns have led to reduced investment, with companies often delaying or scaling back network automation projects due to the upfront costs associated with adopting new technologies. Additionally, there are concerns regarding job security as automation has the potential to replace certain IT roles, potentially resulting in workforce reductions or necessitating changes in skill sets, thereby creating uncertainty and impacting employee morale. Therefore, while an economic slowdown presents opportunities for cost savings and efficiency gains through network automation, companies may exhibit hesitancy in investing in new technologies during uncertain times, with the overall impact varying based on individual company financial situations, IT requirements, and long-term visions.

Impact of Russia Ukraine War:

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has the potential to disrupt supply chains for networking equipment due to the significant roles both Russia and Ukraine play as sources of raw materials and manufactured goods. This disruption could result in shortages and price escalations for network automation products. Simultaneously, the crisis might spur heightened demand for automation solutions in response to businesses seeking to streamline processes and reduce reliance on human labour, particularly in regions vulnerable to cyber threats or supply chain disruptions. However, economic sanctions imposed on Russia could hinder the network automation market by limiting Russian companies' ability to procure relevant products and services. Consequently, while the conflict's impact is anticipated to be multifaceted, encompassing negative elements such as supply chain disruptions and price surges, it also presents positive prospects like the increased demand for automation solutions The importance of digital infrastructure is clearly understood by Ukraine and the Russian Federation, which has adopted policies to promote its development.

The live updates and videos posted on different social media platforms, the conflict in Ukraine has become the most accessible war of all time. Ukraine has been able to use social media location to be able to target specific groups of Russian soldiers. Internet traffic coming back online in areas of Ukraine under Russian occupation have been re-routed to networks owned by the Russian government. In 2022, the Internet had disrupted almost 2,000 instances of Russia's activity on its platforms. In Russia, there are extraordinarily skilled threat actors at their disposal and this makes Ukraine's defence even more impressive. The war in Ukraine is taking place at a time of greater competition between military powers for technological advantages. such as space, artificial intelligence, autonomy, robotics, materials, computing, telecommunications or sensors.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
