Notas do Editor
In your fast, ever-changing environment, you need a trusted ally to help you meet your business objectives and overcome challenges by using advanced technologies and agile solutions.
Seventy four percent of businesses like yours say improved business agility was the key driver for their investment in cloud solutions. They are also interested in using more third party provided network and telecommunications services in order to simplify their IT/network and telecommunications operational management.
You need someone today to provide an easy-to-use, scalable solution that integrates with your current applications and systems. You need someone who will help you compete now, and be more effective with your company employees and with your partners. You need someone to help you serve your customers better, and develop your products and services quickly and efficiently, so that you are optimally positioned for tomorrow.
As a buyer, you’ve heard that using integrated network and cloud solutions will power the business applications that live on the network without causing trouble, delays, or increased risks. However, that increased expenditure doesn’t equate to the increased value. These days, you juggle many resources, many applications, and multiple vendors, along with the day-to-day administrative takes that prevent you from taking care of your company’s strategic initiatives.
You believe that you will be better off if you could get most, if not all, of these solutions from a single provider that will take responsibility and accountability for the service and support performance. Teaming up with such a partner today would allow you to focus on growing your core business, setting up an even better future for your business.
Main Point: You already have many obstacles and pitfalls to control: managing multiple vendors, services that may not work well together, overpaying for services you don’t need, or not knowing about or understanding services and technologies that can help overcome these challenges to growing revenue and serving your customers better than the competition.
Story: Communication and network solutions you buy must perform well without delays, with predictability, protect the voice and data being used, accommodate growth in the business, touch many customers, employees, and partners, and have the service support uncompromising in the market.
Main Point: By partnering with CenturyLink, you can!
You can have a low-risk environment today to empower your business applications living on the network with integrated Network and Cloud solutions. You can improve responsiveness to new business opportunities, and receive a higher return on investment from cloud and hosting initiatives, putting you on the road to success. These solutions are ideal for retail, financial services, social networking applications, media and entertainment applications, and independent software vendors.
You will reliably connect over a high-quality, low latency private or public network, and meet the requirements for time-sensitive, critical applications with all the benefits of complete Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, and Software-as-a-Service solutions. You get an easy transition to the future of enhanced networking services, hosting for data storage, cloud servers, and application development. CenturyLink is one of the three industry leaders in IT infrastructure management and networking for a reliable connection.
You will have everything needed to establish a cloud migration strategy that reflects your business objectives. By working with a single-source provider of networking, cloud hosting and extensive, flexible, comprehensive enterprise-class managed services, you’ll find your cloud transition a smooth one—not marred by the finger pointing and lack of accountability that can occur when working with numerous providers. You will get the tools, support and products needed to efficiently manage their network and cloud environment—with little to no downtime.
