Business Challenge

Business performance in today’s 24x7 real-timeonly world depends on application performance. When applications do not perform, employees cannot work efficiently, and productivity quickly decreases. This effect is especially true for mobile and remote workers, fast-becoming the lifeblood of modern enterprises as we consume applications, more often than not, from home, from coffee shops, airports, client sites and more. Today’s mobile workforce faces many application performance challenges as a result of always-changing network latency and bandwidth conditions, many of which can be unpredictable and hard for IT teams to resolve. All slow-downs are frustrating and lead to missed business opportunities. And when considered at scale, can come at a great cost to any enterprise.

To stay competitive, build strong and lasting customer and client relationships, increase pipeline and revenue streams, take new products to market on time, and execute high-risk, time-sensitive missions, mobile workers must be able to collaborate and share in real time, download files quickly, and send large file attachments rapidly to any destination. Mobile workers need fast access to corporate documents and information anywhere they are working in the world. And businesses should have the freedom to decide the optimal location where data and applications reside— locally, in branch offices and global data centers, and in the cloud.
