The Internet of Everything (IoE) is changing the business and IT landscape, fueling unprecedented growth and disruption. As such, just thinking about cloud deployment is not enough. Organizational leaders need a cloud strategy to help future-proof their business and better meet objectives.
In fact, according to Gartner, organizations that continually monitor cloud computing trends and subsequently update the enterprise’s cloud strategy, will likely avoid costly mistakes and garner the most value from market opportunities over the next few years.
As CXOs adopt cloud strategies, what key trends should they keep in mind?
Here’s a short list for consideration:
Trend #1: Prepare for Growing Cloud Workloads
Today’s world isn’t just a world of many clouds, but also a world of growing cloud workloads.
Exactly one year ago, during the launch of the Cisco Empowered Women’s Network at Cisco Live Orlando, we asked the audience: “What would you do if you were not afraid?” On that day, we couldn’t have imagined the incredible journey we would take in answering that question and, ultimately, in building the Cisco Empowered Women’s Network (CiscoEWN).
CiscoEWN was created out of a collaboration between myself, Priscila David (Director, Systems Engineering, US Commercial East); Rima Alameddine (Sales Director, Enterprise NY); and Anuja Singh (Manager, Systems Engineering, Public Sector). All three of us work in the field sales organization at Cisco and have daily interactions with customers and partners. We realized that Read More »
If you’re an Operations Technology (OT) pro, then the buzz about the Internet of Everything (IoE) should have you pretty excited--because it will likely impact your work. You won’t want to miss a chance to find out more about it at Cisco Live San Francisco May 18 -- 22.
Cisco has been hard at work building solutions to address your OT challenges. Cisco Live San Francisco is the place to find out the details…
Here are five (5) reasons not to miss this pivotal event:
#1. A Targeted OT Learning Track: We’ve put together a special program to bring OT and IT issues together and make it crystal clear how the Internet of Everything (IoE)–the convergence of machines, sensors, processes, people and data–is going to make your job a lot more interesting. Read More »
Recently I have join the Internet of Things (IOT) Solutions Marketing team, supporting the oil, gas and mining industries and suddenly in my new role I am meeting with old pals from oil, gas and mining industries again, finding them in different events, conversations, and blogs that just some months ago I would never had thought I would.
IOT is bringing together different industries and companies that had been in parallel tracks for long time. And blurring the lines between different divisions within big companies as well.
In the past, operations, sales, marketing and technology used to interact with different people, and tackling very different problems: they were different divisions with no common objectives or language. It used to happen as well between the consulting services and software division and the networking and infrastructure functions within big IT organizations.
Cisco, usually was rarely present in oil and gas industry events such as OTC, Oilcomm, and ENTELEC (see Cisco’s activities at ENTELEC here). IT big shows were distant from industry events. In events such as Cisco Live it would be impossible to find oil & gas applications, less chance even to find big industry players in the exhibition floor. Well, all that is changing. This year in Cisco Live (read Roberto De La Mora’s blog on Cisco Live here), companies like Rockwell , Schneider and EATON are having booths and speaking sessions and Cisco will be showcasing solutions for Oil & Gas.
