In attending numerous educational sessions lead by today’s leadership within community policing and public safety, we’re seeing some common themes emerging with respect to challenges. Some key insights have been as follows: Read More »
If you have deployed a SAP solutions, chances are that you have also Cisco network solutions in your company. But do you realize that you can get much more out of the presence of the two vendors in your company? And if you run also solutions either from EMC and NetApp you are now literally seating on a golden opportunity. October 9th webcast is your chance to know more.
Cisco and SAP are very natural partners – Both companies are very interested in providing what business customers are increasingly eager to get out of an intelligent infrastructure ready for cloud, big data , and data analytics : Improve personal productivity, increase process visibility, expand customer insight, manage risks and provide security, with the promise of achieving unprecedented level of business agility, financial efficiency and IT simplification.
Over the past years , SAP introduced a new concept with SAP HANA, “a game changer in Memory platform, allowing customers to run the business differently thanks to an easy , near real-time access to a vast amount of data” to quote Ryan Veerubhotla, SAP AG , VP Ecosystem and channels – If you haven’t already seen this educative , easy to understand video, check out . A great way to see how data in motion become data in action!
Truth is ..for a solution such a SAP HANA to be very successful , it requires an outstanding infrastructure – And that’s where the Cisco Unified Data Center plays a central role –
Whether we talk about Unified Computing Systems, Unified Fabric or Unified management including Intelligent Automation, the Data Center portfolio of solutions that Cisco can deploy for a SAP user makes a tremendous difference in terms of ease of deployment, ease of management , cost reduction and containment and of course performances. (a quick reminder that Cisco UCS broke in less than 3 years + 70 world-record benchmarks including this week a TPC-C benchmark)
Massive amounts of data are being created every day, and shaping the way we live, work, and interact. Big Data can give a strategic advantage. Big Data can also create a richer experience for customer. We all agree about that.
But early on our scientists have speculated on the implications of the explosion of data. They described their vision for a future Internet of Things — when trillions of networked computers could free people to focus their energies on pressing issues like climate change or resource shortages. (See video interview from David Evans, (@DaveTheFuturist) Cisco’s Chief Futurist and Chief Technologist and blog from Shaun Kirby, Director of Cisco’s Innovations Architecture Practice for Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions)
Today we definitely see the Internet as the next realm for Big Data to shine : From a video camera, a tire pressure sensor to a smart meter these devices are creating a constant flow of data. In fact, as Carlos Dominguez , Cisco SVP , Office of the Chairman of the Board and CEO explains in his today blog “Finding Wisdom in Big Data” , the data generated by the devices will very soon make up the majority of all information available. With the caveat , that the real-time nature of these new sources of data requires that it is evaluated in motion and in meaningful way. The value of data is often dictated by time – being at its highest value as it is created. It is less and less relevant to look at them later.
Big Data is the new oil! It has the power to transform economies, make businesses more efficient, and improve our daily interactions as consumers. However, like oil, data is not truly valuable until it has been refined—until it is analyzed and some valuable action is extracted from it. Although it has been the subject of much discussion, Big Data is really in its infancy—which begs the questions, “How will big data evolve? And what are the opportunities for service providers to create value in Big Data?”
Catching the Waves of Big Data Evolution
The term Big Data generally refers to the growing scope of data analytics in terms of the variety, velocity, or volume of data involved. Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) sees Big Data evolving along three waves and across the three dimensions of data, control, and consumer (see Figure 1). Today, most companies find themselves in the first evolution-ary wave, where data and analytics are siloed within specific business processes. In Wave 1, the result of data analytics is Read More »
Today, at the High Performance Computing for Wall Street event, we announced Cisco Algorithm Boost or Algo Boost technology, a groundbreaking networking innovation with numerous patents pending, that offers the highest speed, visibility and monitoring capabilities in the networking industry. A true game changer delivering competitive advantage to our customers!
Ideal for high performance trading, big data and high performance computing environments, this new technology offers network access performance as low as 190 nanoseconds, more than 60% faster than other full featured Ethernet switches. When your business success is determined by nanoseconds, this is a huge gain!
The first switch to integrate the Cisco Algo Boost technology is the new Cisco Nexus 3548 full-featured switch which extends Cisco’s leadership in networking by pairing performance and low latency with innovations in visibility, automation, and time synchronization. And it is tightly integrated with the rich feature set of our Nexus Operating System, a proven operating system used in many of the world’s leading data centers, creating a truly differentiated offering.
