The DX Economy: Transform or Perish

Digital Transformation and the Path Forward

by Tim Allen | 07.22.16

Most of today’s IT and business conversations include references to big data, analytics, mobility, Internet of Things, social media, security, and cloud—and while they all play increasingly critical roles in the evolution of business, the bottom line is all about going digital. Digital transformation, what IDC calls DX, will determine the winners and losers. It’s a case of transform or perish—and your infrastructure, centered on your network, will be the foundation on which your success will be built.

Networking's Ugly Truth

You Can’t Get There (DX) From Here

by Tim Allen | 07.18.16

If digital transformation, what IDC calls DX, is in your future—and IT IS—then the ugly truth is that your network infrastructure will have to change radically. Most of today’s networks are based on technology that hasn’t changed much over the last 30 years. But that technology is woefully inadequate for addressing all the new and emerging requirements of big data, analytics, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), social media, security, and cloud.

by Tim Allen | 04.15.16

It’s been a little while since my last article, giving me some time to think about our “constantly connected world” and the interesting changes new technologies have brought to our daily lives (not to mention affecting my own behavior, possibly to my detriment).

IT Networking Survey

Take the Pulse of Networking Trends

See What IT Decision Makers Are Saying

by Tim Allen | 04.05.16

Recently, we partnered with research firm IDG to ask your peers some probing questions about their networking goals and challenges. We received some great responses that really help illustrate today’s networking trends. For instance, over half of the respondents, 54%, chose security breaches as one of the top challenges they face, while 52% are also struggling to increase bandwidth requirements. Looking ahead, 58% plan to focus on reducing downtime, outages, and system failure. Security, reliability, and scalability seem to be at the forefront as organizations work to keep their networks up to date.

Break Out of Your Silo Mentality

with Game-Changing Unified Communications

by Tim Allen | 09.15.15

Thanks to IT, organizations are more sophisticated and agile than ever in improving processes, developing products, and approaching customers. But for every action there is a reaction. Each of these improvements has required greater specialization, causing the IT unit to focus on cultivating greater expertise in the functions it supports. That could mean greater communication within the business unit, but more often means less communication between business units. In short, silos develop and opportunities are missed because people aren’t aware of what’s going on in other parts of the organization.
