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.

The New Need for Speed in the Datacenter Network

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Today's datacenter networks must better adapt to and accommodate business-critical application workloads. Datacenters will have to increasingly adapt to virtualized workloads and to the ongoing enterprise transition to private and hybrid clouds. Pressure will mount on datacenters not only to provide increased bandwidth for 3rd Platform applications such as cloud and data analytics but also to deliver the agility and dynamism necessary to accommodate shifting traffic patterns (with more east-west traffic associated with server-to-server flows, as opposed to the traditional north-south traffic associated with client/server computing). Private cloud and legacy applications will also drive daunting bandwidth and connectivity requirements. This Technology Spotlight examines the increasing bandwidth requirements in enterprise datacenters, driven by both new and old application workloads, cloud and noncloud in nature. It also looks at how Cisco is meeting the bandwidth challenge posed by 3rd

Classic Network Design Using Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.

Rethinking the Network as a Security Sensor and Enforcer

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security

Across organizations from all sectors, the network is becoming more integral to daily operations. This is acutely felt by public sector organizations in the United States, namely federal, state, and local governmental organizations. Public sector organizations contend with the challenge of ensuring the security of highly sensitive data on the network in the midst of uncertain budgets and, in many cases, outdated infrastructure. At the same time, many public sector organizations grapple with a complex web of compliance protocols that must be supported on the network. This Analyst Connection explores the need for network infrastructure upgrades that include "foundational security."

Campus LAN and Wireless LAN Design Summary

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
There is a tendency to discount the network as just simple plumbing, to think that all you have to consider is the size and the length of the pipes or the speeds and feeds of the links, and to dismiss the rest as unimportant. Just as the plumbing in a large stadium or high rise has to be designed for scale, purpose, redundancy, protection from tampering or denial of operation, and the capacity to handle peak loads, the network requires similar consideration. As users depend on the network to access the majority of the information they need to do their jobs and to transport their voice or video with reliability, the network must be able to provide resilient, intelligent transport.

How Your Small to Midsize Business Can Embrace Mobility Now

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Mobile devices have brought advancements to virtually all aspects of modern life and have had transformative effects on businesses spanning all industries. However, the positive business effects that can be brought about by mobility and "going digital" are not enjoyed as frequently within small and midsize businesses (SMBs) as they are within larger organizations. While potential benefits are there, small and midmarket organizations may have fewer resources available and can find difficulty in realizing the full value of the enterprise mobility infrastructure. Often, organizations find themselves having to make trade-offs between richness of functionality and available resources.
