The demands on your organization’s IT resources are growing every day – planned and unplanned – and so is the complexity of your job.
From BYOD and shadow IT to virtualization and software-defined-everything, you have to manage it all. From security threats and communication outages to business continuity and disaster recovery, you have a lot of contingencies to plan for.
Stay ahead of demand by taking advantage of advancements in technology, including wide area networking.
Here are five statistics that highlight why IT demands will continue to increase for departments of all sizes.
New branches and mobility: 92% of companies have added or are adding new branches (TheFinancialBrand, Sept. 2013)
Application proliferation: 68% of companies expect growing bandwidth demand (2014 InformationWeek Next Gen WAN Survey)
Migration to the cloud: There will be $191B spent on cloud services and software by 2020 (Forrester/San Jose Mercury 2014)
More connectivity: 40% of companies have 16 or more branch or remote office sites connecting to their headquarters or primary data centers. (2014 InformationWeek Next Gen WAN Survey)
Big data: all the data flowing in from sensors, machines and applications. It’s not necessarily the huge volume, but the variety and context of this data, arriving in unstructured formats, requiring a lot of integration work to make it all fit and usable by the business. IDC predicts there will be data flowing from billions of devices– at least 212 billion– by the end of 2020. (via ZDNet)
What does all of this mean? It means that IT directors need to develop approaches to manage growing bandwidth requirements.
