In the Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services (COPS) released on November 3, Gartner recognized AT&T as a leader positioned highest in ability to execute. Indeed, we believe as mobile devices outpace PCs, cloud adoption is increasing and Big Data/Analytics is expected to explode, the world is becoming more connected making a network provider like AT&T the ideal candidate for any business seeking to outsource some or all of their infrastructure and communications solutions.

Here are the reasons why:

A Global Network Provider can help enterprises manage risks and deliver benefits by extending its network and assets.

Only a global network provider can provide end-to-end management of the underlying network upon which all other components must depend. Inherent in this benefit is enhanced latency, optimized performance, and embedded security and incident management, all resulting in an enhanced end-user experience.

A global network provider like AT&T offers a guaranteed path forward to new services like Software Defined Network & Network Function Virtualization, enabling virtualization beyond the data center and integrated into an on demand, intelligent, hybrid cloud network so businesses benefit from a faster, more integrated approach to managing their network at a lower cost.

A Global Network Provider has the people, processes, and tools to simplify operations.

With the right network provider, businesses can take advantage of an integrated service framework incorporating global work centers, technical centers of excellence, and suppliers. This kind of integration facilitates a seamless operating experience.

A Global Network Provider can help businesses take advantage of new technology to drive transformation without the inherent risk and time investment.

The right network provider is constantly investing and developing innovative technologies to stay on the cutting edge. Areas of innovation that AT&T in investing in are inherently network extended, solutions that are layered on core managed global network infrastructure including cloud/virtualization, Unified Communications and collaboration, and mobile data solutions. Businesses can leverage this investment for their own benefit, avoiding the risk of investment and experimenting while speedily deploying business solutions that transform their business.

There are more data, more bandwidth-hungry apps, more end-points, and more business critical workloads out there than ever before, creating a set of unique challenges for the network infrastructure which now needs to be intelligent, dynamic, and on-demand. Carriers like AT&T are well positioned to help businesses manage through these challenges and succeed in using technology to transform their business.
