When it comes to your most critical high bandwidth connections – like data centre to data centre, and data centre to cloud – most enterprises depend on ‘carriers’; telecoms firms with the fibre optic pipes in the ground. Computing’s research reveals that, while it frequently takes over two months to provision new services – or even make changes as simple as increasing or decreasing network bandwidth – enterprises are ‘satisfied’ with the status quo, accepting a slow service that affects business growth along with outages simply because that’s the way its always been.
Most enterprises would change if they knew there was another way.
In this web seminar, our panel of experts explore the research in full, discussing why it is that in an era of 'software-defined everything', where connectivity happens at the flick of a switch, how it is that we are still putting up with service levels driven by a 1970s business model – and argue that customers can, and should simply be, more demanding.
Questions answered in this web seminar will include:
- What is the state of play in enterprise networking, and how is this disadvantaging businesses?
- How should you be prioritising your needs in enterprise networking for a modern business?
- What are the impacts of under- or over-provisioning bandwidth, and how can they be avoided?
- How will the enterprise-wide migration to the cloud affect expectations in carrier networking?
- What should you expect from carriers in terms of a revolutionary approach to contract models?
