[Replay] MEA Webinar: Insights from Silicon Valley

Now that the pandemic has set in motion major changes in our ways of living and working, our job is to assist you in the transformation of your network to cover your new business needs, for example, driving changes in technology, connectivity and networks and securing your data and systems.

In this webinar, we offer insight through a discussion with our Orange colleagues in Silicon Valley.

Discussion topics

We start on the subject of enterprise technology. Indeed, in this software-defined-network era, you can move away from physical infrastructures to allow rapid changes, scalability and flexibility, simplifying management and driving down costs. Specifically:

  • Who is responsible for digital transformation: CIO, CTO – or COVID-19?
  • Which digital transformation initiatives help accelerate transformation?
  • How radical digital transformation is forcing a strategic re-evaluation of the role of technology in business
  • Strategies for winning by going digital deeply – to the benefit of your customers

Then we move on to the subject of connectivity, networks and cybersecurity in the “New Normal.” As your workforce has grown into the new model of part office and part remote, your cyberattack surface has expanded and has created significant opportunities for hackers. Cybersecurity threats will have to be re-evaluated.

If your VPNs and network security appliances are still housed on premise, you’re probably under massive strain. Re-engineering your network and connectivity architecture to handle the increased need for security may prove to be the best way forward – as it has for many of our customers.
