RESEARCH PAPER: Open Networking Leads Digital Transformation

By John Fruehe - September 19, 2016
Companies see digital transformation as a way to help them accelerate their business by leveraging mobility, the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, and social media to drive better insight and speed decision making. But before they can transform their businesses, they need to transform  their network first, because traditional network architectures hamper digital transformation instead of propelling it forward. Dell Networking has a product strategy that focuses on making networking openprogrammable, and scalable—all attributes that will be required for a business that is heading down the path of digital transformation.
