Increasing numbers of people are working from anywhere in the world, from various environments beyond the office. There has been an exponential rise in applications running in the cloud and a boom in the number of connected objects embedded across the world.

On top of all that are spiraling user expectations. Whether customers or employees, they expect superior end-user experiences wherever they are based. Every business is now a digital business. That means you need to guarantee performance, security, and resilience, all while reducing operational costs, managing complex consolidations and, ultimately, succeeding in dynamic, fast-paced global markets.

Your network is the enabler of all this. It runs the applications that determine whether your business can move forward and, ultimately, operate with greater efficiency and agility.

Why the network is the enabler of digital business

Networks are an integral component of today’s digital business, playing a central role in strengthening customer relationships through enhanced communications. Networks run the applications that drive the business forward and ensure that organizations can operate with greater efficiency and agility.

Speed is a key feature in any successful network. Fast-moving data means a better end-user experience, but it isn’t the only ingredient organizations demand from their networks. Today’s digitally transformed business needs connectivity that’s agile, scalable, cloud-based, on-demand and cost-effective – a network with the right technical and contractual adaptability to ensure it meets the demands of your growing digital business, now and tomorrow.

And it needs to be future-proofed. That includes being able to access cloud-native platforms that bring together local and wide area networks (LANs and WANs) with multi-cloud environments, as well as deploying software defined networks (SDNs) including SD-WAN. In addition, you should be working with a provider that can deliver Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) services via its own controlled infrastructure. This will not only secure your network today but also lay the groundwork for future networks.
