Historically, networks shaped the way business operated, but today we can shift that perspective in such a way that the business scenarios can shape the network to best address the market and leverage different technologies and capabilities to meet the necessary requirements. The result is greater flexibility, greater cost control, and an improved security posture. In this rapidly changing and strict regulatory environment, that security angle is essential to the business continuity.
Today, networks need to be more about the ability to leverage broadband internet connectivity while working remote, as well as balancing the capacity, availability and security requirements of specific applications.
IBM thinks of network transformation as more than just refreshing the network with new equipment. We advise project-based network consulting and integration services, (including design, integration, and optimization services around organizational corporate voice, data, video, and data center infrastructures) can help serve the needs of enterprises, by being key network drivers.
