Over the next decade, a major transformation will take place. The human workspace is becoming not only a post-PC environment, but also one that is augmented digitally. It is becoming entirely adaptive to its user: cognitive of location, mobility, device and desired digital interaction.
Such functionality is a core attribute of the emerging “experiential” enterprise. This is an organization where both beings and things contribute to business productivity and corporate intelligence, leveraging technologies and services that are in their infancy today, including: big data analytics, network functions virtualization, software defined networking, the Internet of Things and augmented reality.
Tremendous network and computing power are required to support the enhanced and on-demand digital interactions within the experiential enterprise. It’s already clear that experiential metrics are driving enterprise investment (see fig. 1). Not least, this mesh of intelligent communication must be managed and secured across a physically dispersed human workforce composed of employees and ad-hoc contractors using personally defined digital tools.
New opportunities for CSPs exist because lower technology costs are making it feasible to sell to wider audiences. At the same time, new opportunities appear when CSPs can make material changes in their go-to-market strategy.
