IDC’s COVID-19 Survey revealed that over 50% of organizations are going to increase their technology budgets for innovative technologies in 2021, enabling remote offices, secure connectivity, and cloud applications. It indicated businesses will face a series of challenges and uncertainties during the post-pandemic times. Yet, the overall competitiveness is expected to raise with the introduction of innovative technologies and intelligent solutions.
In the absence of network infrastructure and technologies required for innovative applications, it is high time for enterprises to deploy ICT solutions including software-defined networking (SDN), information security, or other intelligent services which constitute a digitally resilient IT infrastructure and network to adapt to the new normal.
Connecting the digital economy is of crucial importance when it comes to business expansion under the new normal. Regardless of whether enterprises plan to automate business, apply artificial intelligence (AI), or even leverage cloud technologies, an intelligent network with high efficiency and scalability is indispensable.
Under the new normal, enterprises are competing in a merciless business environment. The complexity of the network environment and the usage of applications have increased with the scale of expansion. Accordingly, a traditional network architecture will inevitably become obsolete; instead, one that is highly flexible and agile has become fundamental. Designated for this ever-changing environment, CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid SD-WAN features AI capabilities can be effectively used for traffic prediction/forecasting to lower costs, reduce latency and resources wastage, hence optimizing application performance and accelerating the digital transformation to generate more opportunities.
In addition to network challenges, information security is another issue worth mentioning, especially now that the network border is expanding as businesses grow with the widespread use of cloud applications. As a result, cyber threats are raging and proper cybersecurity measures need to be taken seriously to secure the business-critical data. To ensure that enterprise networks are fully protected, CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrustCSI™ analytics-driven security management solution empowered by artificial intelligence enables proactive monitoring of networks and systems and provides data insights in real-time. Modern threats and hidden vulnerabilities can be addressed through analytics-driven security and improved security incident response.
