With the growing technological demands in the global marketplace, a number of companies are implementing such initiatives as globalization, branch automation, workforce virtualization and post merger integration. To make such transitions successful, many are turning to outsourced network management to drive a secure, responsive network.
Partnering with a network management partner like Alcatel-Lucent enables the organization to realize reductions in CAPEX/OPEX, deliver operational and financial efficiencies, reduce network overlays and lower IT costs, transform networks and processes for long-term growth and develop and grow new streams of revenue from new sources.
The proper management of the evolution of enterprise networks is essential for enhanced functionality and lower cost. This is true of the network itself, as well as the applications, content and databases they support. At the same time, the day-to-day operation and maintenance of an enterprise network is critical to keep business moving forward.
Robust management of all aspects of an operational voice and data network requires sound discipline, rigorous tools and sharp personnel as performance demands can peak and network elements can malfunction. At the same time, access rights and routing tables can change and unwanted access of people and software viruses, worms and other attacks can disrupt operations, compromising privacy and intellectual property.
In order to achieve globalization, branch automation, workforce virtualization and post merger integration, a number of different functions within the network must be altered in order to work together in the right process.
This can be a daunting task to try and handle in-house. In working with a proven provider such as Alcatel-Lucent, the enterprise can not only ensure a seamless transformation, but also the creation of a secure and responsive network to ensure business continuity in a competitive global market.
