Connecting Dark Assets: An ongoing series on how the Internet of Everything is transforming the ways in which we live, work, play, and learn.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is all about connecting people, process, data, and things in innovative ways. And if you think that’s just a nice vision for the future, look no further than the Hong Kong subway system — preferably after midnight.
That is when the last train rolls off the tracks and an army of about 10,000 maintenance people spring into action Read More »

Now that we are connecting billions of things to the Internet, companies are faced with a huge opportunity and a huge dilemma. Connected things are generating an explosion of data that has the potential to save and earn tremendous amounts of money, time, and resources for companies. However, much of that potential is wasted because that data is most valuable in the moment it is generated, and the time it takes to send that data to the cloud for analysis is too long for real-time decision making.

Billions of devices are changing how organizations compete and disrupting traditional data management and analytics.
This Internet of Everything world presents an exciting new opportunity to discover and take advantage of market, customer, and operational insights. And by making sense of captured data quickly, organizations can take action at that point, in that moment, in ways that differentiate versus competitors and drive significant new business value. TimeWarnerCable’s intelligent home initiative is one example.
But all this data is massive, messy, and everywhere, spanning many sources – cloud, data warehouses, devices – and formats – video, voice, text, and images. To address this challenge, new solutions beyond traditional data warehousing and even big data are required.
Cisco Enters the Data and Analytics Market
When Cisco acquired data virtualization market leader Composite Software in mid 2013, Cisco signaled a clear intent to begin connecting this data via intelligent networking the same way it connected LANs; the Internet; voice and video over IP; and more in it’s 30 year history.
And with our December 11, 2014, Connected Analytics Portfolio announcement, Cisco adds a rich suite of analytics solutions that help organizations capture insights that create new opportunities, simplify business operations, enhance the customer experience, and resolve potential threats.
New Methods for the New Challenges
Today’s analytic solutions need to advance beyond traditional methods that move data to a warehouse or data lake before commencing analysis. Cisco’s Connected Analytics Portfolio provides analytics with immediate access to data, as well as brings analytics to the data – no matter where the data resides on the network.
Further, Cisco is uniquely qualified to implement analytics at the point of data, because so much of the data worldwide resides on our networks, providing the ideal platform for embedded analytics. Along with 30 years of networking experience, Cisco now has the data and analytics tools, software, and services to help our customers instantly capture, analyze, and interpret critical data out to the network edge.

‘Tis the season to shop and to make resolutions for the coming year. I’m doing a fair bit of both, inspired by the many Internet of Everything (IoE) products that are popping up everywhere. And while it’s the season of giving, I’m also finding plenty of things I wouldn’t mind getting myself. According to the National Retail Federation, I’m not alone. “Self gifting” makes up almost a third of all holiday shopping.
IoE is about things connecting to the Internet, millions of things. It’s about turning the data they collect into information we can act on or respond to. Cisco defines IoE as bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before. Read More »

We all know that Big Data is getting bigger. And, the gap between the amount of data with hidden value and the amount of value that is actually extracted keeps widening. In fact, according to IDC, less than 1 percent of the world’s data is currently being analyzed. What good is data if it doesn’t produce actionable insights that generate improved outcomes?
A large portion of the world’s data is produced by the billions of connected objects that make up the Internet of Things (IoT), a critical enabler of the Internet of Everything. In Cisco Consulting Services, we recently conducted a blind global survey to learn more about how organizations are harnessing IoT to transform their businesses — and what they can do to drive more value.
