Yesterday, Dimension Data released the Network Barometer Report 2012.
In an age of unprecedented technology innovation, networks remain the foundation of the advanced forms of communication and collaboration that we have come to rely on. For business, an optimally performing, secure network is the mission-critical infrastructure that connects all its moving parts, enabling processes, increasing efficiencies, enhancing productivity and optimising costs.
Dimension Data’s Network Barometer Report is an annual aggregation and analysis of the data and knowledge collected from Technology Lifecycle Management Assessments performed on our clients’ infrastructures in the previous calendar year. With a sample size of almost 300 organisations and greater geographic diversity, the 2012 Network Barometer Report is more relevant to clients than ever before.
The 2012 Report sees a focus on enterprise mobility and the growing impact of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies on the underlying network. In addition, we’ll share info on;
- how clients are responding to broader issues such as wireless, wiring closet, core upgrades, performance optimisation and security;
- and of course, there’s info on the now familiar analysis of device security vulnerabilities, device obsolescence, configuration variance from best practice and Cisco IOS analysis.
The report delves into how organisations are managing their networks and provides recommendations on where they should focus their efforts in the next 12-24 months. We also discuss interesting findings when comparing the results of the overall sample and to those of organisations that have completed the Technology Lifecycle Management Assessment on a recurring basis.
