Information and communication are two of the most critical strategic issues for the success of every enterprise. While today, nearly every organization uses a substantial number of computer and communication tools they are often still isolated. And to overcome these obstacles, a resilient network is a necessity as it is the single greatest vehicle of knowledge, understanding and human advancement.
But with the humungous increase in the number of users, businesses today are facing a huge upsurge on the network traffic growth owing to the growing base of employees, partners, and customers. The stress on the network has been continuously evolving. CIOs cannot meet this challenge with traditional network architectures.
In order to survive this demand, an enterprise needs a platform that can scale up and yet simplify operations. Juniper has been redefining the network landscape and helping customers enable smarter and more efficient businesses. The CIO100 Networking Pioneers, in association with CIO, honors those organizations that have created impeccable underlying connections and frameworks to keep enterprise data flowing, while addressing issues of growth, scale, and cost optimization.
