Applications Enabling Digital Transformation Agility
There’s an elephant appearing in boardrooms up and down the country and indeed across the globe; it is there to ask how to stay relevant over the next four or five years in the face of potential market disruption coming from competitors known and unknown.
Thus, we are seeing the largest percentage of enterprise IT budgets being dedicated to the undertaking of a digital transformation within the business with the explicit objective being to re-position the company to remain relevant and thrive in their own market.
The more forward thinking channel vendors and suppliers know and understand this and are themselves positioning their propositions to meet these enterprise and channel challenges head on.
Virocom a technology managed IT Services company is a great example of such a supplier with the vision, skills and resources to enable their customers to execute a successful digital transformation.
Virocom is a Microsoft UCaaS suppliers in the UK, that can deploy S4B in in any mode; cloud, on premise, as a managed service and it launched Microsoft Cloud PBX towards the end of January 2017.
Digital transformation is also accelerating mobile and IoT adoption — giving rise to the Connected Enterprise, putting greater emphasis on the wide area network (WAN). According to a report by IDC, the burgeoning market for SDN in the WAN (SD-WAN) is projected to reach $12.5 billion by 2020, spurred on by the need for more agile, automated and available networks and a direct result of digital transformation.
Virocom is steeped in history of delivering enterprise-grade 4G LTE, hardware solutions that span branch, vehicle and IoT use cases. Virocom is partnering with EE and O2 Telefonica for its M2M connectivity and Cradlepoint for its integrated powerful hardware and software that enables remote management and network control. Virocom believe it has the correct technology and momentum to be a major player in the next generation of enterprise WANs.
By 2020, the number of people, vehicles, and things connected to the enterprise network will start to dwarf fixed branch sites. This dramatic shift in the volume and variety of connections will force the enterprise WAN to become more cloud-orchestrated, software-defined, and wirelessly connected and has already started to usher in an entirely new network security model. Virocom believe with its M2M SIM connections and by partnering with Cradlepoint it has the potential to become a major player in wide-area networking for the connected enterprise.
