1) Taking Advantage of The Device Mesh

2016 IT Trends Include The Device Mesh

In 2016, your awareness of the device mesh will go from a “What the heck is a device mesh?” to “Are all of our employee’s devices connected and optimized for the device mesh?” The device mesh includes traditional business computing, mobile devices like smart phones and tablets, new forms of wearable technology, and a bevy of consumer and home electronic and automotive devices. In the post-mobile world, the device mesh extends the connective range of the user to just about everywhere.

Even more importantly, it extends the range of your employees. Suddenly, they can be doing work and accessing proprietary information while on the go; in restaurants, on airplanes and even while commuting to work. As the device mesh grows, greater cooperative interaction between devices needs to emerge. Moreover, user experience of websites and online services must be optimized to meet the needs of this new bevy of devices. If your customer can’t see your offerings on their smart phone, they won’t remain your customer for very long.

In terms of your business, Zephyr Networks can help your company make the device mesh work for you while ensuring the security of your proprietary data across multiple platforms. Isn’t it essential that your employees can do their work safely and efficiently across multiple platforms? The device mesh should not be a spider’s web that entraps your company, but an array of exciting opportunities that help your expand your technological reach.

2) An Emphasis on Private Cloud & Data Center Services

InfoWorld’s David Linthicum has suggested that 2016 will be the year when the phase “cloud computing” is retired. Instead, people will go back to simply saying “computing” because the cloud has become that essential to the modern world. Zephyr Networks agrees with this belief, although the transition in the lexicon might take a little longer. After all, the adoption of new technological opportunities is always slower than expected as business owners resist change. Given this resistance, Zephyr Networks now provides a private cloud and data center services audit for our clients, providing an education side-by-side with a description of how this technological opportunity can help your company.

The most important access of a private cloud is so obvious that it almost feels absurd to say it aloud: Privacy and Autonomy for Your Company. Rather than being a little fish in the ocean, threatened by larger predators and pollution and anything else you can imagine, your company becomes a big fish in its own pond, protecting your company’s data while accessing a tailored package of services that make sense for your business. The focus of a private cloud and data center services audit is to understand exactly what your company needs to continue on its path of success.

Why Truly Proactive IT Managed Services Make The Most Sense For Your Company?

At Zephyr Networks, we are starting off 2016 by promoting the idea of why truly proactive IT managed services make the most sense for your company. In the past few years, we have all seen a plethora of online IT service applications and offerings pop up. Rather than coming out of the woodwork like in the old days, these business termites came out of the network, makings tons of promises that most IT professionals know they cannot fulfill.

The Rubber Stamp Of Online IT Anonymous Offerings

Right off the bat, you have to ask yourself if your company is worth more than the rubber stamp offered by online IT anonymous offerings. The set-up of online IT offerings is essentially anonymous because you are not working face-to-face with your service providers. From the outset with Zephyr Networks, you get to know us because we meet you onsite at your company. More importantly, we get to know you and your company, tailoring our package of IT managed services to meet your specific needs.

Yes, the online offerings of the termites that weaken your foundation claim that they will save you money. Yes, they allow you to pick and choose from their rickety offerings, but do they actually know what you need? Do you have the technical expertise to know what you need?
