The global business and technology landscape has been changing rapidly over the years. Adapting to technological trends and customers’ needs has remained the priority for most businesses. In a survey conducted, more than 80% of the respondents said they are willing to invest in accelerating the digital transformation of their business.
It is not just meeting customers’ needs or adapt- ing to changes, this transformation also helps in tapping into a new revenue stream and open up a plethora of opportunities for the business. How- ever, bringing this change into already established business is not an easy task. It requires tremendous expertise, capital expenditure and willingness to adapt to the changes. Brander Group has been assisting clients globally over the years with experience in the digital transformation of businesses.
Jake Brander, President of Brander Group was with the CEO Views team briefing how they were able to streamline the transformation of businesses and implement effective practices across the industry.
Brander Group was started as a response from clients who were having difficulty deploying dedicated internet and global WAN projects working directly with the internet providers. Their team of engineers provide clients with a strategic approach on choosing from over 500 best of breed providers to quickly implement internet circuits in hard-to-reach places. Their product offerings then expanded into the data centre, cloud migrations, voice, mobility and IT procurement support, to provide a full service IT and network consulting firm. They help global leading brands solve critical IT challenges, streamline operations & lower costs.
Speaking about the challenges that Brander Group is addressing, Jake said, “It is a developing field which has changed everyone’s lives and acted as a pioneer to drive globalization. Deploy- ing technologies quickly and effectively is considered one of the major challenges in the present generation. As innovation hyperscale’s, the technology trend is updating very fast. To match with the current scenario, bringing new ideas and making them effective plays an important role”.
Choosing the best or “most appropriate” solutions and providers in every architectural area and getting the best prices has been a critical task for all employees involved in network and infrastructure for the past 20 years.
