Determine the best approach to network transformation to be Future-Ready
Everyone has their own favourite way of building a burger. Sourdough buns or brioche, beef or chicken patties, or blue cheese or kimchi condiments – the possibilities are endless and can be confounding.
Designing a burger is akin to orchestrating the different layers and components of your SD-WAN strategy. Like the burger - whether to make your own or have a chef to construct - network transformation has many components and service options available.
Homes are the new branch offices with remote working adoption set to stay, and more devices to be connected. As organisations make sense of the new normal and how back-to-work looks like, a flexible and scalable network becomes key.
The Vodafone-GlobalData APAC Ready Network survey found that 33% of APAC organisations are preparing mobile and cloud first strategies to support the anticipated rise of remote working, with 76% preparing for more than half of their business-critical applications to reside in the cloud by 2023.
Whatever your goals, having a future-ready network will be the bedrock of ensuring continued business success.
