Online, mobile, omnichannel, untethered, data mining, automation, and remote
communication are all now buzzwords surrounding the new technologies and resources
financial institutions have to help them re-invent their branch experience. Capabilities are
available today that were not imagined a decade ago. This is an exciting time for those
institutions that can look to the future and enhance their offerings.
While technology is driving change, it can also be a tremendous challenge for financial
institutions as they work to keep pace and even take advantage of the dramatic shift in
customer needs and expectations. Millennials, baby boomers, small businesses – all are
important market segments with very different wants and needs. Driven by technology,
the new demand is for a complete online presence, complemented by more flexibility in
personalized services, and specialized expertise available in every branch.
Suffice it to say, financial institutions of all sizes and in every geography a
oftware-Defined WAN, or SD-WAN for short, is at the leading
edge of software-based networking deployments. SD-WAN
offers significant business value for organizations with distributed
branches in terms of business agility and the ability to
leverage Internet bandwidth economics – put simply, cost savings.
This Software-Defined WAN For Dummies book explains the way
for IT and business managers to migrate to a distributed network
which is less complex, more flexible and easier to manage. With
this book, VMware and Dan Pitt make an important contribution
to better understanding the future of WAN implementations.
