Cloud Computing
►    Many organisations are favouring
     enterprise/private cloud strategies that focus
     on data centres and virtualisation
►    This is important, but frequently their
     network – which determines how their
     computing power and data will be distributed
     - is being overlooked
►    This oversight could mean their cloud
     strategies will not deliver the expected
     returns
►    We can help companies get their network
     cloud-ready and benefit from real ROI more
     quickly
►    Don’t ignore the network!
