This White Paper reviews the current state of enterprise WAN usage, key challenges businesses face today with their WAN, the impact of digital transformation initiatives on the WAN, and key benefits of using software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). The ideas presented in this White Paper draw on the findings of a March 2017 survey of more than 800 network management executives about WAN usage and attitudes. The survey was conducted by IDC and sponsored by Comcast Business.
Companies today are as distributed as their customer base, with branch offices and
satellite locations scattered well beyond traditional boundaries. For many, these
distributed sites are the face of the company to the customer, with most—if not all—
customer interactions occurring in these locations and not in the corporate headquarters.
Banks and finance centers, retail stores and even urgent care centers all fit within the category
of the branch office, with each location connected to the corporate headquarters and, increasingly
each other. Together, they make up the distributed enterprise. However, each location is
its own entity and must be able to operate independently of headquarters to ensure business
can continue even if one or other locations experience technical issues.
Distributed locations, therefore, must be equipped to handle all manner of customer interactions
– and evolving customer expectations—and do so in a way that anticipates what the customers
want next. From pers
Industry historically has run on the concept of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Companies that had found success with a process or technology were content to maintain their status quo, and it wasn't until they started falling behind their competition that they considered making a change. Digital Transformation changed that, as organizations increasingly embraced technology to push ahead of their competitors and be more proactive in the decisions that impact their business.
Just like your business, technology never stops advancing. Each year, there are new ways that technology can automate processes, lower costs, and enhance customer and employee satisfaction - all with the goal of increasing revenue! And while it can be difficult to change how your business works, leaving old methods behind and embracing new technology can help lead your business to more success and growth.
The technology landscape in the financial services sector is vast, ranging from cutting-edge to mission-critical, each having an impact on the industry as a whole. Customer-facing services and back-end operations alike are seeing real benefits from innovation, including greater efficiencies and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
The rate at which technology is evolving is increasing almost exponentially. In the business sector, hardware has given way to software-defined everything, while many on-premises technologies are now offered as a service. Much of the advances in technology over the last few years have been the direct result of the growing ubiquity of the cloud and faster connectivity speeds, both of which have enabled companies to adopt digital transformation technologies to help them work smarter and more efficiently.

Technology has had a truly transformative impact on the healthcare space. Thanks to innovations in technology, tools and their respective processes, the practice of treating patients has shifted from mostly reactive to proactive, enabling physicians and caregivers to approach healthcare in a more holistic fashion.
As part of that shift, hospitals, wellness centers and physicians’ offices are focusing on providing value over volume1, taking healthcare beyond the four walls of the facility and into patients’ homes, places of work and social centers. The concept of whole health is much easier to attain with technology such as artificial intelligence, analytics, wearables and mobile health (mHealth) apps, to name a few.
