However, of late, the dynamics of business have changed so fast that trusted networking applications, technologies and approaches are under significant pressure to adapt and evolve.
Today’s enterprises have a completely different architecture as compared to businesses a decade ago. There is a much greater propensity towards automation and digitization, with a view to improve speed and performance. The availability of a wide range of technology options, both within the enterprise as well as on the cloud, allows enterprises to optimize almost every part of the business, including supply chain, HR, marketing, finance, procurement, training, customer support, payments, risk management, etc.
