NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider of enterprise IT and communications solutions, today announced with NEC Corporation in Japan that it will showcase a broad suite of top-to-bottom IT and Communications solutions that encompass its IT empowered framework at Enterprise Connect, March 17-20 in Orlando, FL. NEC is leading the wave with its solutions for the smart enterprise that enable advanced, resilient and programmable infrastructure that can be executed at a global enterprise scale.
NEC invites attendees to the Enterprise Connect 2014 show in Orlando to booth #919 to see the key components of NEC’s empowered IT framework and observe powerful demonstrations of a smart enterprise user experience.
Communications is an essential ingredient of the formula, but NEC has taken steps well beyond just communications to change the IT value chain with smart enterprise solutions that empower organizations and create a more responsive and agile business environment.
“Smart enterprises are recognizing a convergence of information and communications technologies, now known as ICT,” said Shinya Anraku, senior vice president, NEC Corporation of America. “NEC is empowering the ICT wave with converged technologies to optimize business practices, drive workforce engagement, and create a competitive edge.”
NEC’s smart enterprise approach aligns with leading research firm Gartner, whose recent key trends for 2014 support a practice of the so-called “Nexus of Forces,” including: social, mobile, cloud, and information that continue to drive change and are the catalyst driving demand for smarter enterprise infrastructure.
NEC’s framework combines its powerful software-defined networking (SDN) suite, fault tolerant servers, storage, and virtualization software tools with its enterprise-class software applications for unified communications, web collaboration, customer care, virtualized desktops, and industry-specific applications that can operate as virtualized software within the framework. NEC’s enterprise-class applications are designed with service orientation in mind, allowing the applications to communicate with one another and enable other business applications to consume these services to create even greater enterprise workflow integration.
Key Value Pillars for Smart Enterprises
Agility, cloud, collaboration, and service assurance are becoming essential ingredients for the smart, secure, and always-on enterprise. NEC employs these drivers for an evolving technology foundation that not only enables new approaches for how IT services are delivered and managed, but also presents new ways for businesses to grow and evolve IT delivery. NEC defines key values for smart enterprises under four pillars:
- Business Agility – empowering mobile workforces and creating a more adaptive IT environment that is more responsive to business needs.
- Cloud Delivery – delivering flexible deployment models that enable swift business growth and increased efficiencies.
- Collaborative Communities – providing powerful tools enabling a rich user experience for collaboration across organizations.
- Assured Services – delivering highly available, secure, and scalable infrastructure designed for business continuity.
