In 2020, millions of people abruptly transitioned to working from home to help mitigate the transmission of COVID-19. Seemingly overnight, remote setups were implemented across industries to keep employees safe. But this rapid transformation put the company networks those remote employees were accessing at high risk. With increased vulnerability, new security threats have grown both more common and more cunning, making it increasingly important for businesses to adopt new ways to optimize network monitoring, in order to keep their infrastructures safe.
A digital experience platform (DXP) simplifies many business and technical challenges, both tactical and strategic so that companies can operate more effectively through digital. That directly translates into streamlined internal processes, better employee productivity, cost-savings, and a quicker, higher return on investment.
With all these benefits ripe for the taking, you’d think many organizations would be jumping at the opportunity to implement a DXP. But for many organizations that are still growing in their digital maturity, it isn’t that easy.
Based on a survey conducted by Progress and Pulse, only 12% of marketing and IT decision-makers have landed on a DXP that meets their organization’s specific needs. Perhaps more surprising is the fact that the wealth of different features may actually make the choice harder—35% of organizations have not implemented a DXP because the solutions available on the market offer capabilities they may not even use, and they don’t want to overpay.
The pandemic has driven businesses to focus on improving the customer journey by leveraging digital experience platforms.

Instead, they need to understand and uncover what the people are interested in to be able to deliver their message effectively.

When you manage a large network, nothing is worse than servers that fail. Well, that's not completely true. Nothing is worse than servers that fail -- and you don't know they've failed. Hmm... even that's not completely true. Nothing is worse than servers that fail, and once you find out they've failed, you can't figure out why. That's a formula for a very unpleasant day.
