Intel blogger Sandhya Gorman is back this week to talk about Intel and Cisco leadership in innovation and collaboration .
“Two leaders I respect very much were featured at Oracle Open World 2011- Cisco CEO John Chambers and Intel GM Kirk Skaugen. Both spoke on different days to separate audiences but the themes were strikingly synergistic.
Skaugen spoke about the explosion of data that will be sparked by the 15B connected devices expected to be in the hands of the worldwide population by 2015. This year, connected devices produced 245 Exabytes (that’s a 10 followed by 18 zero’s) of data alone. As we get to 15B devices, businesses will need to rely on the Cloud to manage all the data in order for them to focus their efforts on innovation and capturing market transitions.
Chambers expressed Cisco’s vision of collaboration and connectivity to foster innovation. Businesses and consumers no longer will have to deal with 7 or 8 vendors, standalone devices and architectures to collaborate and realize the relevance of the all the exabytes of data we process.

Interestingly, both Cisco and Intel are in a position of enabling collaboration and innovation from both a push and pull perspective.
In a classic performance, captured here on Youtube, Steve Balmer does a pretty good job of illustrating his feelings on the importance of developers. We share his enthusiasm.
You have probably already heard that we have an enterprise tablet, the Cius, with corporate telepresence, baked-in security/encryption, VXI, docking stations, display out and a bunch of other features that make it the ideal corporate citizen. One of those features of particular note to developers is the enterprise app store, AppHQ. The AppHQ makes it easier for Cius owners to find apps, while providing an easy route to market for developers. Of course, things like the AppHQ are far more interesting when well stocked with interesting apps, which brings us to the next point…
To help get the word out on the Cius Developer program, Cisco will be at Droidcon London. Participate in our “Crack the Code” breakout session with Marcus O’ Sullivan, Business Development at Cisco on the first day at 2:40 PM in room two. Then, have a drink on us; we’ll be sponsoring drinks later in the exhibit hall. On the second day, Tim Stone, Cisco Business Development Director will give a key note on the insights on enterprise mobility strategies first day at 9:35 AM in the auditorium.
If you miss some of these events, that’s okay, you can always drop by our booth, [booth number] any time—you wouldn’t be able to miss it. Bring some ideas, we’ll be glad to chat with you about the possibilities that are out there for you.
We are also giving away two Cius tablets at Droidcon—just drop your business card off at one of the events or at our booth and we will pick two winners!
So, if you can, please join us at Droidcon – we look forward to hearing from you. If you can’t make it to Droidcon, we certainly encourage you to join the Cius Developer Program.
Remember, there are lots of ecosystems out there but the good ones all have one thing in common…
Hi all, I’m Kati Dahm and I’m interning with the Social Media Communications team at Cisco this summer. I’ll be taking over for Lindsay with your top news stories of the week, coming from The Network to your computer every Friday. With The Network fully underway, these are our top stories of the week.
Today, I’d like to showcase some additional Cisco Cius customers, sharing how they use the Cius in day-to-day business practices to streamline customer interactions, accelerate sales and enhance collaboration.
Palomar Pomerado Health
Healthcare leaders are always looking for ways to improve patient care and speed time to treatment. When a physician receives a call about a patient, their first step is to review the patient’s medical record. Palomar Pomerado Health built the MIAA (Medical Information, Anytime, Anywhere) app on the Cisco Cius so its physicians can easily look up medical records and access the patient care team directly from the tablet wherever they are (be it at home, at the hospital or on-the-go).
Physicians can also click-to-video with a nurse, other doctors or even the patient streamlining the need for everyone to be in the same location. In an industry like healthcare, security is an absolute must. With the Cius, Palomar Pomerado Health is able to cut through the complexities of accessing patient data stored in multiple locations and provide secure and quick access to other healthcare specialists. The business-class security embedded in the Cius ensures confidence that patient data is safe and sound – and allows Palomar to leave all worries at the door.
