In this sponsored post, AT&T discusses how voice network transformation can enable your digital strategy.
As your business and technology leaders start to launch digital transformation initiatives, they do sometimes end up putting the cart before the horse.

That percentage can goes as high as 54% among large organizations. And, although most organizations are evaluating cloud services for IP telephony and unified communications, the majority still operates on-premises systems.
To reap full value from your digital transformation, you first must address your foundational infrastructure. Replacing costly old TDM with IP-based capabilities is a good first step toward digital transformation.
