In 2021 alone, SMEs will spend over $182BN on new digital and cloud technologies to increase efficiency, accelerate growth, and improve employee and customer experience. For these businesses, internet connectivity is no longer a “best-effort” utility. It’s now a strategic business imperative. Fortunately, the SME IT community is stepping up their game with a whole new approach to internet connectivity. They’re using new thinking and new technologies to deliver the internet performance and reliability their businesses now need.
Bigleaf Networks designed the Internet Maturity Model as a guide for SMEs that need to deliver that same new level of internet performance and reliability for their own users. The model reveals four stages of maturity to align with the needs of the SME as their digital and cloud adoption increases. Each stage is a tradeoff between cost, reliability and speed, allowing each business to find the balance that’s right for them.
