By managing latency well, your network can support cloud services, off-site backup and mirroring, and e-commerce – adding to your company’s bottom line and making your operations more efficient with happier users.
In many enterprises, marketing is a multichannel effort that
includes a wide range of touch points. The touch points
range from websites and email promotions to traditional print
advertising, postal mail, and broadcast, and direct sales by phone and in-person sales teams. But too often, each channel works independently, accountable to its own objectives, unaware of the efforts and results made within other marketing channels. As a result, call centers speak to customers without knowing the
offers the customers previously accepted or rejected. In addition,
emails launch without reference to online promotions and
websites present messages that disregard their visitors’ previous contact history.
Every e-commerce website is different in terms of content, offerings, layout and navigation. And every shopper is unique with diverse intentions, tastes and purchase patterns. That’s why personalization is critical to help you meet your business and website goals.

Companies today are as distributed as their customer base, with branch offices and
satellite locations scattered well beyond traditional boundaries. For many, these
distributed sites are the face of the company to the customer, with most—if not all—
customer interactions occurring in these locations and not in the corporate headquarters.
Banks and finance centers, retail stores and even urgent care centers all fit within the category
of the branch office, with each location connected to the corporate headquarters and, increasingly
each other. Together, they make up the distributed enterprise. However, each location is
its own entity and must be able to operate independently of headquarters to ensure business
can continue even if one or other locations experience technical issues.
Distributed locations, therefore, must be equipped to handle all manner of customer interactions
– and evolving customer expectations—and do so in a way that anticipates what the customers
want next. From pers
