Enterprises are facing complex challenges in simplifying the delivery of network, communications and collaboration services to their users, while trying to take advantage of the newest, most secure, and cost-effective services available.
Combined with a shortage of key skills, the increasing pace of technology change and issues around data security, CIOs face challenges in supporting growth.
The FarrPoint team covers the networks and services that underpin businesses. These include managed and hosted communications services, evolving communications networks, technologies, applications, and professional services. Our team speaks regularly with suppliers to fully understand technology developments and we understand the detail behind the marketing.
Efficient communication is fundamental to ensure the smooth running of enterprise and there are a number of important industry trends that must be understood and analysed. Collaboration technology can enable organisations to communicate and share knowledge, both internally and externally, like never before. This can be critical when winning new business and bringing existing products and services to market faster and more cost-effectively.
More and more businesses are considering the opportunities and risks involved in moving to a cloud based service delivery model, given the increasing trend to centralise application delivery and reduce data centre running costs.
With the increased deployment of mobile workforce business models, the need for a simple and productive mobile working solution is imperative. Enterprises need the correct technologies with effective and fit-for-purpose network architectures in order for real business benefits to be achieved.
