Cloud is already here—and thriving. Today, twenty-three percent of total IT spending is devoted to cloud, and the increase in cloud’s share of IT spending is expected to increase by 17 percent over the next three years. Yet as we transition into the next phase of IT evolution, Cisco and its partners will need to know how to adapt and seize opportunities in a rapidly changing ecosystem.
In our most recent “Winning in the Cloud” partner webcast, we discussed a groundbreaking new study, “Impact of Cloud on IT Consumption Models.” That study, conducted in collaboration between Cisco® Consulting Services (CCS) and Intel®, explores the forces transforming IT organizations, and determines just what skills our IT leaders and service providers will need to succeed.
The study is based on customer-focused surveys of more than 4,000 IT decision makers, from enterprise and midsized companies, spanning 18 industries and nine key economies in developed and emerging markets alike. It presents a detailed analysis of what IT organizations of the future will look like — and what their leaders need to do today to ensure their future success.
Some of the report’s key findings include: Read More »

Is interactive video an important business tool for your organisation? If yes, then read on.
Medianet is an architecture that Cisco often talks about and it seems like it’s been around for ages (well 5 years to be exact), but its true value is often obscured by complex diagrams and techno speak that Cisco engineers (like myself) love. So what exactly is the benefit of EX90 TE6 MSI firmware delivering Medianet metadata to an Access Layer Catalyst 4500? How does the combination of MSI, metadata, perfmon and Mediatrace save you time and money? Unless you have a degree in Cisco acronyms this might be hard to answer!
What I’m going to attempt in this short blog is to try and translate the Medianet architectural jargon into the potential cost savings that Medianet offers customers who deploy our video endpoints and applications over a Read More »

“Growth is inevitable and desirable, but destruction of community character is not. The question is not whether your part of the world is going to change. The question is how.”
- Edward T. McMahon
Does your housekeeping list look like mine? Turn on the lights. Take out the trash. Clean the living room. The list could go on.
Have you noticed that how we perform these simple, daily tasks is changing? Smart utilities are replacing our old ones. Home automation is on the rise. Smart appliances that make our lives easier are now for sale and coming home with us.
At first glance, this influx of new capabilities has a novel appeal. After all, who doesn’t want a refrigerator to make their grocery list? I know I do. However, a second look reveals deeper potential. Potential that allows us to achieve sustainability across an entire community.

As connections on the Internet of Everything (IoE) continue to grow, we’ve asked our employees to tell us how and what they’re connecting.
Cisco Fellow Flavio Bonomi describes how one team is helping to bring a collection of smart, connected vehicles online. What does that mean for us? Vehicles that can provide dynamic collision-avoidance systems, better fuel efficiency, and help decrease pollution and gridlock. And that’s just for starters. Here’s the entire story: Read More »
