Yesterday, Cisco opened its new regional headquarters in Singapore, one of the first in the world that was designed from the ground up on the principles of the Cisco Connected Workplace, which integrates technology seamlessly into the workplace to foster collaboration. The new office is a living, breathing example of what Cisco feels is the next generation workplace.
Earlier this year, Cisco brought together several thought leaders in the industry to discuss the next generation workplace and what it meant to them. The one common thread which they all agreed on was that the next generation workplace is becoming essential to attract and retain the best employees and that it is as much of a cultural shift as it is a technological shift.
This video captures the essence of that discussion which features Dinesh Malkani, then managing director of Cisco’s Collaboration business in Asia Pacific, Japan and Greater China; Simon Kahn, chief marketing officer, Asia Pacific, Google; Craig Gledhill, vice president, Regional Enterprise Business, Samsung Electronics; Han Kwee Juan, chief executive officer, Citibank Singapore; Garluck Lai, assistant director, Technology & Resource Management, Temasek Polytechnic; and Manoj Menon, partner and managing director, Asia Pacific, Frost and Sullivan.
The Johnson City School District transformed its students’ learning experiences, teachers’ teaching experiences, and parents’ academic insights with BYOD applications, allowing them the freedom to learn and connect anywhere, anytime and on any device.
With wired Internet access readily available in each of the 11 schools, the district took its first steps into wireless Internet access in its elementary schools. The city teamed up with Cisco to implement its BYOD Solutions for K12 Education to advance the schools’ wireless networks. The flexible network access allowed teachers to use laptops in their classrooms, stream online video, and adopt testing applications that used iPods, tablets, and other mobile devices. The schools’ networks also addressed the previous network limitations such as security measures preventing access for students and guests. Read More »
Cisco Live Orlando, June 23-27, 2013, is quickly approaching and registration is open. The Security track this year includes 72 breakout sessions, 74 hours of labs and seminars, and 3 Product Solution Overview sessions, accounting for about 15 percent of all the content delivered at Cisco Live. New for this year we will have several talks aimed at the network engineer in the role of a data analyst, helping them to better utilize and understand the data that comes from their networks (BRKSEC-2001, BRKSEC-2006, BRKSEC-2011, BRKSEC-2062, BRKSEC-3031, and BRKSEC-3062).
Mobile devices have quickly become a mainstay in enterprise environments and continue to be consumer driven, and yet they find their way into our day-to-day business lives. As these new devices are being brought into the work environment by employees, enterprise IT is increasingly being forced to accommodate for business use. This is not new news. We observe this pattern through our customers today and live this phenomenon within our own everyday work environment at Cisco. Here at Cisco, employees have the flexibility to choose their device and to securely connect to voice, video and data services from anywhere under an Any Device policy. Cisco manages over 64,000 mobile devices today.
