Infrastructure challenges haven't changed, they've just got more complex.
Organisations need infrastructure that can support agile working, enable their cloud strategy, deliver the experience needed on evermore demanding applications- all whilst being secure.
These aren't new challenges. The problems and urgency surrounding them have just accelerated.
This is driving big change. Budgets are being freed up and the factors that slowed transformation before are no longer inhibitors.
There's huge focus on delivering a better user experience, improving security, driving down network costs and increasing agility.
