Do you have the right technologies and processes in place to achieve a competitive advantage? Are you leveraging digital technologies to inspire engagement and improve business outcomes?

By 2020, it is expected that more than 28 billion IoT devices will be in operation. We’re talking major growth here, according to IDC. As more organizations move beyond the traditional data center, it’s becoming increasingly important for companies to modernize their branch networks in order to improve their digital strategy.

Here’s what we know:

1.  The rise of IoT and mobile devices can have a significant impact on branch operators who face difficulties with managing both networks and security from multiple vendors.

2. IT needs to improve business workflows between WLAN, LAN, WAN, and security by modernizing architecture.

3. Connectivity and security risks continue to increase, especially for retail stores, medical clinics and hotels with limited staffing.

4. IT deployment and management resources are severely understaffed, yet they still need to meet business expectations.

The pace of change is rising exponentially and your customers expect an exceptional experience across all touch points. Companies that embrace digital capabilities transform themselves so they can survive and thrive in the new economy.
