Today’s fast-paced, always-on world is fuelled by the availability of ubiquitous connectivity. The ability to extend the enterprise beyond organisational boundaries and the rise of the cloud is resulting in the rapid convergence of networks, applications and communication. An organisation’s ability to respond to the opportunities this presents depends on its ability to modernise its legacy infrastructure, open up enterprise applications to enable real-time collaboration and quickly develop new, agile services for their customers.
Our Connected Organisations solution can help your organisation become more agile whilst at the same time helping reduce service development and support costs.

By opening up access to your business applications and systems through APIs software developers inside and outside your organisation are free to create new applications that connect to your IT estate. As a result developing new services for your customers and enabling seamless, low friction integration across your supply chain no longer means complex, time consuming and costly projects.
The full potential of APIs can be more quickly realised with a Service Integration and Application Management (SIAM) approach to IT and service management. SIAM enables you to avoid the costs; inflexibility and risk associated with single supplier outsource contracts and as a result frees up your organisation to focus on developing best of breed applications and services.

Underpinning application and service performance is the ability of your network infrastructure to provide access to services, application and information not only to employees, customers and suppliers, but also increasingly “things” both inside and outside of the corporate environment. Many legacy networks are beginning to show the strain and are unable to cope with ever increasing demands.
We can help you overcome these limitations by moving away from costly and time consuming device based network management to policy based organisation-wide management that automates the provisioning and configuration of the entire network. The result is a modern infrastructure that can not only accelerate the deployment of new services, but also reduce costs.
