How to Prepare for the Future of Business IT Webiner

In this webinar:

The future is something we all like to think about and talk about. What will the future look like? What does the future entail in terms of choices we make today?

Meanwhile, staying on top of your business – especially your business IT – is not an easy task. Many choices have to be made about your IT that will impact the future, including hardware, software, services and personnel. Underneath the IT infrastructure lies a foundation: the layer "0" for structured cabling. It’s often overlooked, but is so critical to your business. Many choices have to be made regarding this layer "0" in order to better support your IT and your business. The complexity goes beyond just selecting a cabinet or a cable.

In this presentation, we will cover IT market trends, applications and drivers, and take a closer look at how to make informed choices as we ready ourselves for the future.
