Organisations today continue to face the challenge of supporting an ever more dispersed workforce – remote locations, remote employees, mobile users, customers and partners. Increased usage of a variety of bandwidth-hungry applications, some centralised, some accessed in the cloud requires a flexible and fluid infrastructure……….and there lies the problem.
As more applications move to the cloud, network performance becomes a major obstacle. If the network isn’t capable, performance suffers, and employee productivity drops and the cloud strategy stalls.
A robust infrastructure is needed for these new applications to work, but more importantly is a complete picture of what already ultilises available bandwidth, but also, what’s in the pipeline. Without a complete appreciation of the landscape, connectivity is a guessing game.
