As I think nobody has answered this bit ..
if your company needs lots of incoming connections to things running on
different IPs, the biggest one that comes to mind is HTTPS, someone can
say why I think HTTPS can't do name based virtual serving it needs IPs for
some part of the security ...
If you are just a company that connects to other people, NAT is fine for
most uses, you may require a few global IP addresses depending on how many
connections you want to support etc..
