According to a March 2017 Boston Consulting Group survey, 75 % managers and especially CIOs ones, consider complexity as a major curb on performance. Also, 90 % assert agility is critical to adjust to market trends and carry out the business strategy, so leaning on a good expertise is necessary.
In most companies, CIOs are facing three major stakes: to reduce telecom / network expenses, to grow more agile and eventually to optimize performance.
How to tackle the challenges that confront CIOs?
The first thing that comes to mind might be to favour technology and rely on internal teams to run the infrastructure. Businesses must address short and medium-term key issues which come to technology needs or calls for tenders. Bids submitted by providers must then be compared; the most efficient looking technology must be selected, implemented and teams must be trained to operate it…
But is it really the business of your enterprise to operate network performance?
Wouldn’t it rather be to concentrate on your core activities, in developing new tools relying on a quality infrastructure service?
In sum, rather than focusing on any technology performance, you may think of the quality of service the ISD assures to users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Thankfull, managed services constitute the most fitting solution and the most efficient one to guide you in the management of your digital strategy. But what is it all about?
