Cloud computing is a key driver in the enterprise digital transformation. It is impacting every sector, from retail to financial services, to manufacturing, to heavy industry. As a result, agile and innovative new digital-centric businesses are emerging. At the same time they are experiencing large-scale upheaval of their business models, enterprises also face increasing disruption from those new, nimble competitors. The gauntlet has been thrown: disrupt, or be disrupted.
Enterprise IT teams therefore face a tough challenge. Often, they are finding that their organization’s complex, high-speed data center and hybrid cloud infrastructure is not ready for new applications and services, and that cloud connectivity using the internet may not live up to performance expectations. Understanding what’s needed to remedy these problems requires instrumentation that monitors network performance end to end, with plug-and-go connectivity at remote offices and branch sites for visibility into locations where applications are actually running—precisely what Accedian offers with the SkyLIGHT solution.
