Adapt and evolve with interconnectivity

Sponsored By: Equinix

‘Anywhere, any time on any device’ is the new normal for business operations, requiring enterprises to exchange Information in real-time every day. Navigating the digital space is a crucial component to not only standing out among competitors, but surviving in the market.

During this year’s Cisco Live conference, CEO John Chambers forecasted, “Forty percent of businesses in this room, unfortunately, will not exist in a meaningful way in 10 years,” he told the 25,000 attendees, adding that 70% of companies would “attempt” to go digital but only 30% of those would succeed.
