|Equinix quantifies the full business impact of Interconnection|
Interconnection provides direct and secure, physical or virtual connection between a company and its partners, customer and employees. The interconnection surge that will take place over the next 24 months will bring about a great transformation in the way global enterprises connect, communicate and collaborate with customers, partners and employees. But interestingly, our research showed that "non-interconnected" enterprises' expectations for the business impact of this shift may be much too low.
The survey respondents were asked to rank the importance of several business challenges/opportunities as they relate to either having deployed interconnection ("the interconnected enterprises") or exploring interconnection in the future ("the non-interconnected enterprises").
