In this whitepaper, Farpoint Group explores key trends in branch and distributed-computing landscapes. Legacy branch deployments involved lots of discrete functional elements, systems-integration efforts and high costs. But today, cost-effective, compact, and easy-to-manage solutions are taking advantage of advances in connectivity, reliability, cloud services, unified management, and more.
Key topics discussed:
- How branch operations are motivating a consolidation of function
- Top requirements for branch security
- How the productivity of operations staffs can be optimized, lowering operational expense
- A cost comparison of traditional vs. consolidated/integrated implementations.
