The Network in 2020: Faster, Closer, Smarter

It’s no secret that more people, more than ever, are more digitally connected. The underlying network needed to support this connectivity must be faster, closer, and smarter, according to Forbes contributor Steve Alexander.

Bowman addresses three main lingering concerns in the corporate world, including generational divide. “Millennials are driving a market disruption that many CEOs are grappling to embrace,” Bowman adds, however, that this difference does not need to result in irreconcilable work practices and values.
