"Connectivity needs to be secure. One of the key premises of software-defined WAN is transport independence, which means you can leverage the Internet. If you’re going to leverage the Internet it better be secure. No one wants to trust their whole wide area network to the Internet without security."
"When you look at those social images they really help you understand what types of content works for my audience. If you think of how much time, money, energy, blood, sweat and tears you all put into content and you put it out on social and really can’t tell what resonates and what clicks with your customers, that’s the opportunity to dig into the metrics."
"If networking changes, and it is flexible and on demand, the rest of IT infrastructure should be as well for the app layer, for the data layer, for delivering to the end users."
"You can see what they’re interested in. You can see what they’re clicking on, what they’re liking, what they’re sharing, what they want to know more about, and that’s a huge opportunity when it comes to B2B interactions."
"We talk about turning data into information. The idea that opportunity plus visibility plus capability equals what I like to call collaborative commerce. This is something that can impact treasury on your side."
