The Future of Connectivity

Looking forward to new value

Network-connected device types are multiplying, bringing important implications for the ecosystem of wired and wireless technologies, products, and services that will provide a foundation for tomorrow's digital economy. This creates new demands on the suppliers of connectivity, the providers of related devices and services, and the ability of industries to use their innovations to gain competitive advantage.

Finding the right answers

Technological savvy may not be enough to address the challenges of the future. And while speed matters, it's no substitute for knowing which direction you should be running in. Organizations will need to ask the right questions and develop a holistic strategy based on the answers.

For established players already operating in a capital-intensive environment, key questions will center on growth and return on investment. For example, how will you reduce operating expenses to support compressed capital investment cycles? For new market entrants, understanding your role in the future landscape becomes critical. Where do you fit? How do you determine and execute a bold new move that positions your organization for success? What should your timing be?
