The Connected Enterprise: Internet Connectivity strategy for a hyper-connected world

Internet connectivity is critical for enterprise operations to function, and to present themselves externally, and the move towards digitisation brings a re-assessment of its value. Businesses are increasingly more reliant on the Internet as a channel - often their primary channel - to market. From single-click payment gateways to high definition video, businesses need responsiveness of service and certainty over the availability and resilience of the connection. Where these requirements are not met, the quality and reliability of how the business delivers services to its customers comes under question.

Connectivity strategy has always been an important component of business success, but the drive for digital transformation in enterprise has seen its role escalate beyond a supplied commodity service into a critical utility.

In this whitepaper we examine the options available to IT architects and strategists to enhance and future-proof their business Internet connectivity.
