"As mid-sized businesses across a variety of industries increasingly replace the cost and complexity of on-site IT infrastructure with cloud computing, software-as-a-service, videoconferencing and other network-based applications, a reliable, high-bandwidth network connection is becoming a mission-critical asset," said Kevin O'Toole, Senior Vice President of Product Management and Strategy, Comcast Business Services. "Our partnership with BOMA will allow us to work closely with its 16,500 commercial real estate professionals that collectively own or manage nine billion square feet of office space to create cloud-ready' buildings. Today's tenants expect a high-capacity network that is always available and can scale to meet the business and application needs they have today or in the future."
The BOMA International Partnership Program, developed in 2004, allows companies to invest in their own success and viability, as well as that of the building management industry. With three levels of participation - Cornerstone Partner, Leadership Circle Partner and Supporting Partner - the Program demonstrates the commitment of leading organizations to support BOMA International.
