Transform or risk losing market share

Enterprises are being challenged by agile, technology-enabled market entrants and must transform quickly to avoid losing market share. In response, many are putting their IT infrastructure environments under the microscope, seeking to develop high-speed, low-latency interconnections between cloud, colocation and edge computing.
