“Connectivity is not just a by-product of progress – it’s a crucial enabler”
Since the dawn of the Internet age, the technology that allows us to connect has evolved at a rapid pace. From dial-up access to DSL or cable broadband – and now to fibre optic connections – every new development in data connectivity edges us closer to better, faster, cheaper internet access.
These advancements have also radically transformed the way businesses handle data and communication, allowing them to achieve a level of connectivity that surpasses boundaries, improves collaboration, drives new revenue streams and redefines the customer experience.
Here’s a look at how businesses can harness advances in data connectivity to work smarter and make better decisions.
The Internet of Things (IoT)
The connected device is fast becoming a valuable tool in many industries to improve processes as well as collect, visualise and analyse data. More and more, companies are looking at how the IoT can be utilised across operations, from supply chain management and product optimisation to financial decision making and customer experience management.
Communication technology is critical to any business operation, especially in a day and age when remote collaboration is becoming more and more popular. With the help of a strong, always on connection, a Unified Communications infrastructure can provide a central platform for a myriad of communication tasks, bringing together VoIP telephony, instant messaging, video conferencing, mobility, presence, and collaboration capabilities into your business environment.
Managing data is no longer bound by the location of your equipment thanks to data connectivity. Cloud services give companies more flexibility in how employees work by giving them constant access to files, data and collaborative project tools, even when they’re out of the office.
With technology comes risk. In order to protect your business – and the data it generates – from the threat of security breach, managed cybersecurity services are imperative to ensure compliance, customer confidentiality and risk mitigation.
