The right fiber Internet provider can significantly improve
the service you provide to employees, partners and clients.
For the best outcome, carefully vet providers based on the
following top three criteria:
Clients are benefiting from a rapidly evolving fiber
Internet landscape and the associated competition
among providers. Choosing the right vendor from
among the many vying for your business requires careful
consideration of how each operates. Take into account,
for example, expertise and experience, breadth of services
and support and investment in infrastructure.
Many businesses attempting to implement digital
strategies are held back by subpar Internet connectivity.
Networks with insufficient bandwidth and inconsistent
performance cause a wide range of problems that prevent
businesses from competing effectively. Such issues can
range from unsatisfying online experiences for customers
to unreliable connectivity for employees to the inability to
run latency-sensitive applications and share large files. In
short, their networks are delivering poor value that affects
nearly all areas of their businesses.

As an insurer, the challenges you face today are unprecedented. Siloed and heterogeneous existing systems make understanding what’s going on inside and outside your business difficult and costly. Your systems weren’t set up to take advantage of, or even handle, the volume, velocity, and variety of new data streaming in from the internet of things, sensors, wearables, telematics, weather, social media, and more. And they weren’t designed for heavy human interaction. Millennials demand immediate information and services across digital channels. Can your systems keep up?
Innovation requires many ingredients: a great idea, creativity, persistence, the right data, and technology. Governments around the world are taking advantage of the cloud to reduce cost and transform the way they deliver on their mission. The expectations of an increasingly digital citizenry are high, yet all levels of government face budgetary and human resource constraints. Cloud computing (on-demand delivery of IT resources via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing) can help government organizations increase innovation, agility, and resiliency, all while reducing costs. This whitepaper provides guidelines that governments can use to break down innovation barriers and achieve a digital transformation that helps them engage and serve citizens.
In the last few years we have seen a rapid evolution of data. The need to embrace the growing volume, velocity and variety of data from new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been accelerated.
The ability to explore, store, and manage your data and therefore drive new levels of analytics and decision-making can make the difference between being an industry leader and being left behind by the competition. The solution you choose must be able to:
• Harness exponential data growth as well as semistructured and unstructured data
• Aggregate disparate data across your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud
• Support the analytics needs of your data scientists, line of business owners and developers
• Minimize difficulties in developing and deploying even the most advanced analytics workloads
• Provide the flexibility and elasticity of a cloud option but be housed in your data center for optimal security and compliance

In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.
