We can help you can make the transformation to being a network enabled enterprise. This is a strategic migration that can simplify your network architecture, require less people to be involved in running it, make it easier to scale while establishing a secure, reliable high-performance connection to the cloud.
When I look at it from your perspective, I’m inclined to then say, “Great. So what?”
The answer is not just about lowering TCO, although that’s part of it. But before I respond, I’ll refer to a post by Allison Cerra, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Alcatel-Lucent’s Global Sales and Marketing organization, in which she describes how new communications technologies are helping shape the culture of leading organizations to the point that they create a competitive advantage, an “enterprise digital divide” that distinguishes them from less successful companies. It’s interesting to me because it draws a parallel between the changing nature of enterprise knowledge workers, how the rising stars in enterprises like yours perform day-to-day, and the changes in technology. Is the technology influencing how they work, or is how they want to work driving the transformation? In the end, does it matter, so long as the outcome is good?
