Organisations around the world are recognising the increasing role that technology plays in driving change as they shift investments from infrastructure maintenance towards new projects, such as cloud, data analytics and mobile applications. To remain competitive, they must constantly adapt and respond with increased speed to deliver new services through multiple channels to customers, partners and employees. To capitalise on this opportunity, organisations must be able to tap into their valuable data and energise applications without going over budget while keeping everything protected and secure to reduce organisational and reputation risk. This requires an optimised infrastructure that is integrated, agile, trusted and secure.
