Best in Future of Connectedness

THE FUTURE OF CONNECTEDNESS FRAMEWORK

Connectivity is the common denominator in how people, things and processes interact. For consumers and organizations, increased reliance on digital engagement requires ubiquitous, reliable and robust connectivity. But, as digital interactions continue to increase, it is clear that connectivity is not yet seamless or pervasive.

Organizations will need to address this unevenness in connectivity across different environments and locations as employees and consumers increasingly expect digital experiences supported by ubiquitous, reliable and robust connectivity.
