Technology is meant to make our lives easier and more efficient. When it’s
done right, it can accelerate and transform the way individuals and businesses
operate. So, when it comes to something as essential as communications, the
technology can make or break your organization’s productivity.
In today’s fast-paced business environment, you can’t afford to miss a call.
And communications technologies have expanded to include collaboration
tools, as well as basic and advanced voice functions, like ‘on-the-fly’ call
routing. Add to that the growing need for anywhere, anytime access to voice
and collaboration tools and you end up with the perfect storm of complexity
and lost productivity – just the opposite of what you were aiming for.

Sometimes a perfect storm comes together to signal a radical shift or rebirth of an industry. But it’s not enough to say public relations is in flux or rapidly changing. It’s more impactful to discuss the evolution of the change, understand the potential gaps, and be early to capitalize on opportunities created by these gaps.
The path for change in the PR industry has been tumultuous. And understandably so. The irrationality of basing performance on vanity metrics is so ingrained in the profession that the left-brain, rational piece has been pushed aside. This has created a culture of estimating based on vanity metrics like AVE (ad value equivalency), leading to a dynamic where the C-suite craves that WSJ or TechCrunch story, yet doesn’t believe PR’s reporting on the value of that coverage. When everyone in the marketing stack is crunching numbers and showing real, tangible value, PR is holding onto air. Why keep setting the profession up for failure by perpetuating the cycle of abstr
It used to be that you would build out your datacenter with all the right considerations in place, purchasing equipment that was sized to meet the needs of your organization for today and the near term future.
Change used to be merely planning for capacity upgrades or network expansion, or migrating to the latest application version—or more simply put: things we could measure, control and manage.
With the advent of the cloud, the rise in cyber-based threats, and the need to do more, faster, we’re witnessing a perfect storm that is making it more and more difficult for the enterprise to plan for change, and to maximize the investments that they make in their IT infrastructure today.
This eBook will focus on considerations that you should make when deciding on an ADC solution that can not only survive these changes, but help create opportunities for innovation as the enterprise strives towards digital transformation.

The term “perfect storm” is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm.
Technology’s role in business and society has
shifted away from largely driving efficiencies to
innovating and creating engaging experiences
that attract and retain customers. Innovations and
business outcomes are fueled by a perfect storm
of technology trends in cloud, analytics, machine
learning, IoT and the emerging API Economy. The
convergence of these technologies has created
new opportunities for enterprises to improve
business performance by acquiring customers
faster while creating brand loyalty. The role of
technology expands the interaction with customers
beyond the core of the enterprise – away from
100% dependencies on systems of records –
and towards real-time, contextual interactions.
Businesses are a digital business or they are
evolving to become one. This requires enterprises
to re-think how they build software architectures.

For many years, server-based computing has been seen as a means of, at best, providing those within highly task-based environments with a controlled desktop environment. However, changes in software, hardware, security and management systems are leading towards server-based computing being suitable for a far larger proportion of an organization's user base.
