Enhanced scalability to reduce the costs of your Extranet
Extranets can shave costs from your operations while increasing productivity by enabling online support, training, and worldwide information distribution, and by giving suppliers and customers a means to place orders, confirm status, or search your resources at any time.
But performance and global availability problems can impact adoption rates, forcing your partners and customers to use higher-cost methods of interaction.
If you succeed in driving adoption, you're presented with another challenge, as the increased load on your infrastructure requires more capacity in the form of servers, hardware, software, and the cost and complexity that comes with managing them.
