Gartner Symposium 2021

ITxpo 2021

Building a foundation for growth

With so much pressure to transform, it’s no wonder organisations across every sector are investing in new technologies, applications, and resources at record breaking speeds.

Technology evolution is the biggest driver for migrating to the cloud according to our latest cloud research. This demand will only increase. According to our research, many Senior IT decision makers will prioritise migrating high-performance computing (HPC), big data analytics, and AI over the next 5–10 years.

But what happens to connectivity as they introduce these, and other new services? Every new investment — whether in people or technology — adds more pressure on the network.

That's why its important to partner with those that can provide a robust connectivity foundation for growth, one that is secure and flexible. The Colt IQ Network is a 100Gbps optimised intelligent network connecting to over 29,000 buildings and more than 900 data centres around the world.

Join us at the Gartner Symposium as we look at building your tech foundation for the future, and why a network is key for business growth and building a sustainable, modern workplace.

  • Strengthening operational resilience
