Cisco CloudCenter Solution Use Case: Hybrid IT as a Service

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage. Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to deliver solutions at a much faster pace. As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio. It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking, and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

Don't Get Left Behind

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
This study showed that as companies adopt cloud strategies for sourcing and building IT services, they are both expecting and achieving significant gains in business key performance indicators (KPIs) including revenue growth, strategic IT budget allocation, IT costs, quicker time to provision, and increased ability to meet SLAs. Further, our study showed that as businesses increased their orientation to cloud, these KPI benefits accelerated. IDC has identified five stages of cloud maturity: ad hoc, opportunistic, repeatable, managed, and optimized (in increasing maturity), and while there are immediate benefits from moving even from ad hoc to opportunistic, the benefits accrue and grow as you move up the adoption curve. Organizations studied are realizing $1.6 million in additional revenue and $1.2 million in reduced costs per cloud application.

A New Software Architecture for a Hyper-Connected World

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Technology’s role in business and society has shifted away from largely driving efficiencies to innovating and creating engaging experiences that attract and retain customers. Innovations and business outcomes are fueled by a perfect storm of technology trends in cloud, analytics, machine learning, IoT and the emerging API Economy. The convergence of these technologies has created new opportunities for enterprises to improve business performance by acquiring customers faster while creating brand loyalty. The role of technology expands the interaction with customers beyond the core of the enterprise – away from 100% dependencies on systems of records – and towards real-time, contextual interactions. Businesses are a digital business or they are evolving to become one. This requires enterprises to re-think how they build software architectures.

Strengthening Self-Service Analytics with Data Preparation and Data Virtualization

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Self-service analytics implies that users design and develop their own reports and do their own data  analysis with minimal support by IT. Most recently, due to the availability of tools, such as those from Qlik,  Spotfire, and Tableau, self-service analytics has become immensely popular. Besides powerful analytical  and visualization capabilities, they all support functionality for accessing and integrating data sources.  With respect to this aspect of data integration four phases can be identified in the relatively short history  of self-service analytics. This whitepaper describes these four phases in detail and shows how the tools  Cisco Data Preparation (CDP) and Cisco Information Server (CIS) for data virtualization can strengthen and  enrich the self-service data integration capabilities of tools for reporting and analytics.
