What is the Enterprise of the Future?

Enterprise Times takes a look at the what lies behind interconnection.

Equinix publishes its latest research focusing on the Enterprise of the Future which focuses on how interconnected a company is.

The research looked at 1,000 senior IT roles spread over 14 countries. The job roles included Chief Information Office (CIO), Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Chief Architect, VP Networks and VP Apps. From the job titles it is clear that the companies interviewed were very large multi-nationals. Each took part in an online interview following a set of questions.

The key word that appears to come out of this report is “interconnection”. This is not just about cloud of clouds or connection to employees but also the entire business channel including customers and supply chain. In some ways this should come as no surprise as Equinix has focused heavily on building its data centres and pulling in large numbers of telco’s to ensure customers have a wide choice of options to get connected.

In this article:
