The global network configuration and change management market is projected to grow at about 8.8% CAGR during the forecast and reach USD 2,562.6 million by 2027. In 2019, the network configuration and change management market was led by North America, with a 53.2% share, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific, with shares of 25.6% and 14.4%, respectively. The study reveals that the adoption of network configuration and change management is trending in North America. A region with multiple networking equipment must operate efficiently because, in the event of a power loss, server breakdown, or another disastrous event, the network configuration and change management (NCCM) solutionhelps by recovering configuration settings and restoring the devices to operational status, while in Europe, a large amount of digitalization, growing number of business expansions, and growing number of small and large enterprises have led to an increase in the demand network-based applications and network devices.

Companies and organizations have urged their staff to operate from home as a preventative measure to reduce the possibility of the pandemic in consideration of the COVID-19 epidemic triggered by the novel coronavirus. On the other hand, employees have become vulnerable to various protection threats resulting from operating from home. Furthermore, the rapid global adoption of COVID-19 has increased the amount of data produced from various sources.
Cyber-attackers are viewing the pandemic as an opportunity to dramatically increase their illegal activity by taking advantage of workers operating from home insecurity and capitalizing on people's strong interest in coronavirus relevant information. Hackers are attempting to concentrate on the dramatic developments occurring through industries. Cyber-attacks have increased along with the rapid worldwide spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cybersecurity teams are working with fraud risk management teams to coordinate detection-and-response activities. They have also added a whole slew of new dangers. The perimeter security of organizations is in danger of being compromised. They need continuous monitoring and real-time risk identification for violations at both physical and digital entry points.
For instance, SolarWinds was the target of a major cyberattack that extended to the company's customers. The operation, which was discovered in December and was presumably coordinated by Russia, compromised software made by SolarWinds Corp, allowing hackers access to thousands of businesses and government agencies that used its products. The hackers gained access to e-mails at the US Treasury, Justice, and Commerce departments and other agencies
The global network configuration and change management market is expected to witness growth in the next few years. During the research study, MRFR has observed several factors that are responsible for the growth of the market across the globe. Network automation, time to market and return on investment, and limited capital expense, and low total cost of ownership have attributed to the growth of the global network configuration and change management market. However, the reluctance among enterprises might hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
Network automation is the process of utilizing software to simplify network and security procurement and maintenance to maximize network reliability and functionality. Network automation is being used in combination with network virtualization. Network automation is the method of automating the configuration, management, testing, deployment, and operation of physical and virtual network systems. Network service availability increases as daily network operations and activities are streamlined, and manual procedures are monitored and handled automatically. Manual network setup may cause errors, misconfigurations, and network instability, rendering it challenging to provide the high quality of service required for digital business operations. Network automation eliminates the need for manual network management measures such as signing into routers, switches, load balancers, and firewalls to manually adjust settings before logging out.
Nowadays, many IT organizations depend on managed service providers to manage their network configurations. This creates enormous pressure on MSPs to include magnificent configuration maintenance to attract their customers in the long run. A managed service provider (MSP) provides network, device, technology, and security services to customers through continuing and routine support and active administration on their premises, their MSP's data center (hosting), or in a third-party data center. MSPs handle all initialization tasks, including on computers in remote areas. However, it can limit direct login into the probe and direct access to the probe server. As a result, distributed user control is accomplished effectively.
Additionally, small to medium-sized businesses lack the resources to invest in technology and skilled labor. As a result, it is ideal for anyone to choose the MSP offerings. This is a cost-effective, agile, and inexpensive way for them to expand their IT capability to improve overall efficiency and productivity. In simple terms, MSPs are the most convenient way to gain IT awareness.This has created an opportunity for the vendors operating in the global network configuration and change management market
Nowadays, businesses are experiencing accelerated digital transitions as market leaders demand that the network become more scalable, responsive, and stable. The new service is becoming more fragmented, with more services, embedded devices, and sophistication, resulting in structural changes across organizations. However, change strategies are often imposed in response to things such as legislative reforms rather than being motivated by a conceptual vision.This ensures that it has correctly established the service levels it needs for the main operating processes that IT funds and that it thoroughly recognizes the cost, efficiency, and availability consequences of these service levels. Thus, the reluctance among enterprises to adopt NCCM solutions is expected to restrict the growth of the global network configuration and change management market during the forecast period.
