Leverage & Prepare for the Future of Networked Communications

- October 9, 2015 - 0 Comments

Several years ago, Cisco published predictions on the growth of Internet traffic – such as by 2017, there will be 5 devices and related connections for every Internet user worldwide. While the vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) is growing into reality, in just a couple of years, it’s expected to create more global network traffic than experienced in all prior “Internet years” combined. To leverage and prepare for the future of networked communications, businesses must transform the ways they manage their data collection and analysis. The old rules of capturing and storing information can no longer apply since the wealth of data is found not in a repository but in the place where data is actively collected – at the edge of your network.

AS01421-S for webCisco estimates that 50 billion devices and objects will be connected online by 2020. With that in mind, can you imagine the ways your business can innovate its operations to best fulfill customer needs? Living on the edge doesn’t have to be intimidating – your journey to the edge begins with understanding the data that is vital to your business.

In your digital transition approach, begin with developing a strategic framework for your data processes:

  1. Real time analysis
  2. Data management
  3. Flexibility of use
