The best way to achieve public, private, hybrid and multicloud interconnection is to first leverage smaller, distributed, connected data centers at the digital edge.
The digital edge is where commerce, population centers and digital ecosystems meet. And the digital edge isn’t just people looking at web pages and mobile apps. Increasingly, it's smart devices that consume and generate content that needs to be acted on in near real time.
To survive, electronic trading firms must adapt. And there is a way for companies to architect their IT to find the agility needed to continue to deliver low latency, maximize collaboration, gain new data insight – all while staying ahead of evolving regulatory requirements.
To tackle latency issues, many organizations have started placing significant portions of their application and IT infrastructure at the digital edge where they are close to globally dispersed users, partners and cloud services.
The digital edge is where commerce, population centers and digital ecosystems meet. This is the place where information is exchanged, transactions are conducted, and data is gathered and analyzed. However, the inherent limitations of legacy networks and the laws of physics impair high-speed, low-latency communications over long distances.
The time for a piecemeal approach to digital transformation has passed and, more importantly — it is unnecessary. Now there’s an easier and far more intuitive way to achieve digital business agility through interconnection.
Networking at the Edge: Simplify your topology to increase network performance, resiliency and scalability
To accelerate your IOA strategy for networking, we offer a “Network Blueprint.” This guide lays out the steps you can take to address latency, bandwidth and security issues by deploying a more distributed network infrastructure out at your enterprise’s digital edge, where population centers (customers, employees, partners) and digital ecosystems (clouds, mobile, social networks, B2B partners) meet.
While digital disruption can certainly be viewed as a threat, we see forward-looking companies embracing digital transformation as an opportunity and building a digital edge – a distributed physical edge for their IT infrastructures.
MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global OTT market will hit $62 billion by 2020, up from $28 billion in 2015. That’s just one of several bullish OTT predictions, and OTT TV services are in a great spot to capitalize on this growth. But can they take full advantage of these boom times?
By mixing and matching your company's business needs to the best cloud services, you have the opportunity to create a more agile, flexible and scalable IT service delivery infrastructure that better supports your organization's digital business goals.
