An overwhelming 91% of organizations recognize the importance of delivering exceptional employee experiences to achieving business outcomes. And as more organizations embrace a distributed, hybrid workforce model, the campus network is a critical part of any digital backbone infrastructure providing connectivity for employees, customers, and increasingly, things – all vital to delivering exceptional experiences.

However, designing, deploying, and maintaining a secure, agile network that keeps pace with the shifting needs of the business can have its challenges. Expertise is required to put in place the core network components – such as wired and wireless infrastructure, network access controls, and security defenses. Expertise in modern capabilities – such as automation, AIOps, and analytics – is also needed to optimally monitor and manage the environment.

The keyword here is expertise. Increasingly, businesses are realizing they are best served by deploying their limited resources to further their own differentiated core competencies. For example, healthcare providers make the greatest impact when focusing on delivering exceptional patient experiences while educators and school administrators are better served by focusing on students. The same holds true for other industries like financial services, retail, oil and gas, and others. As a result, organizations are realizing the benefit of outsourcing the day-to-day operations of their campus network to a managed service provider with deep expertise in managing campus networks. It just makes sense…let managed service providers focus on what they do best while the organization focuses on what it does best.
