Cisco coverage: At a glance

As IT infrastructure becomes increasingly complex, and employees’ expectations regarding connectivity, speed, security and reliability increase exponentially, internal support teams are under enormous pressure to deliver.

While 60% of business leaders believe IT teams are leading the organisation’s business transformation strategy, it’s estimated that routine and repetitive management tasks take up the majority (55%) of a modern IT workers’ day.

When network support teams are spread too thin – by managing overly disparate or disjointed network infrastructure, for instance – issues can occur, and the user experience can be compromised. Cisco hardware provides a number of different support options, all of which depend on the nature of your business, current hardware investments, infrastructure configuration, as well as your ongoing needs and requirements.
