For many CIOs, digital transformation initiatives have been greatly accelerated since COVID-19's onset. However, digital transformation was top-of-mind even before the pandemic.
As the need for connectivity grows quickly, businesses are looking to maintain agility, performance, control and better manage costs with access to dynamic, software-defined solutions. At the same time, they need to ensure mission critical capabilities such as disaster recovery, security and reliability are factored into their overall network design.
During this session, the presenter will describe how enterprises are meeting this challenge - illustrated with real-world examples. The audience will hear how leading companies from financial institutions to healthcare providers, faced with the challenge of providing direct, secure, connectivity in an era of remote work from home circumstances, are able to increase bandwidth, supplement workforce and shift operations while mitigating impact to performance or security across their network.
At a time when the volume of connected devices and end-points have dramatically increased, beyond even normal predictions, IT infrastructure as a whole is transforming from an array of data storage and compute locations into a comprehensively connected network of aggregation points. Beyond data center to data center connectivity, enterprises need last mile connectivity solutions that are equally dynamic and accessible.
During the session, the audience will discover:
Best practices to create an interconnected infrastructure - edge-to-cloud - including last mile connections to millions of end point addresses
What strategies enterprises are using now and what are they doing to future proof their infrastructure to optimize network connectivity, pre and post pandemic.
How enterprises can ensure the highest level of visibility and network monitoring while mitigating management pain points in a highly disparate networking environment.
Key takeaways will include tips for creating a more dynamic and agile network infrastructure in the new normal that achieves digital transformation goals, all the while minimizing the need for additional IT resources and maximizing operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Takeaway

How to optimize network connectivity in the new normal, extending and moving data to the edge to the cloud - end-to-end.
How SDN technology and smart interconnection strategies can help enterprises address the increasing volumes of new data being created daily - no matter where they reside.
What enterprises can expect in a post-COVID-19 environment surrounding data center and interconnection competitiveness and performance
