The economic outlook for 2023 isn’t so rosy. None of the experts can decide how bad the economy will be, but most agree it will be challenging. But that doesn’t mean you have to stress about how you will run your business. Instead, put a strategy in place that will allow your business to become more efficient and agile so you can take on anything this economy has to throw at you. 

Cutting costs is one way to tough it out, but you could also go on the offensive by investing in technology that prepares your business for anything and gives your staff what they need to be at their peak of productivity. That technology is the Meraki platform

Deploy fast to take advantage of opportunities

Volatile economies are often when some of the best business opportunities arise and it takes a nimble network to be able to ramp up quickly to take advantage. Need to add a new location to get that contract or business deal? Unbox and plug in IoT or network devices and the Meraki platform will have your infrastructure up and running in minutes.

The Meraki platform even enables you to deploy tens of thousands of networks quickly through automation and simple configuration, accelerating your strategic business goals anywhere in the world.

Add automation to streamline operations

In 2023, doing more in less time will be the name of the game. That’s where automation comes in. Our APIs let you integrate your current procedures, such as security updates, into your Meraki network and then automate them to save more time. What used to take hours can now be done in minutes, giving you and your staff more time to focus on increasing customer satisfaction, starting new business initiatives, or increasing employee productivity.

If you don’t want to build your own apps using our APIs, you can take advantage of the Meraki Marketplace where you’ll find hundreds of custom-built apps across a broad range of use cases. This allows you to pick and choose the apps you need to gain valuable insights about your business and take intelligent actions to increase revenue and business performance. 

Leverage artificial intelligence to optimize networks 

Because Meraki operates the largest cloud-networking platform in the world, it also means we have the largest data lake to feed our artificial intelligence (AI) efforts. This provides a more intelligent platform that can automatically scale networks anywhere in the world—no matter what capabilities are needed. 

Our AI can help you take the guesswork out of running and optimizing your networks, saving you even more time while creating an efficient and agile network that can help you meet your business goals. 

In all, Meraki creates the scale, automation, and insights you need to gain the agility and efficiencies necessary to thrive in a challenging market. So this year, don’t be afraid of what’s to come. Devise a strategy that leverages the Meraki platform so you can become a lean, efficient organization that’s ready to take advantage of opportunities as they come.
