Virtual desktops are by definition, more secure than traditional desktops or laptops, right? Read More »
Its that time of year again -- the Annual Cisco Security Review. We decided to feature a whole show on this one -- which makes it fun but also of course brings a fair set of challenges. As good as we are…we can’t cover it all. You MUST read the report. It is quite good.
So where did we go with it?
We brought in some friends and fun with a few topics as well -- notes are below…but let us know your favorites! Read More »
Sorry, I couldn’t resist the New York Post headline.
We’re at a very exciting time in our industry. There is a shift underway to mobile devices and cloud computing, both of which have exciting ramifications for unleashing a new wave of productivity in the enterprise. But don’t think that scammers aren’t benefiting off this wave as well. They are also enjoying an increase in productivity.
Introducing Cisco Industrial Intelligence. Neither James Bond gone corporate nor Cisco gone espionage, Industrial Intelligence is the enabling of business enterprises and municipalities to more intelligently and responsively manage industrial operations globally, and it’s one of Cisco’s latest adjacencies as part of the Borderless Networks solutions portfolio. Having IP-data and control flows converged with voice, video and virtualization creates a more intelligent platform for innovations that connect devices to measure, monitor, and manage resources for greater efficiencies, to connect people in less time and space, and to connect ideas that generate solutions to today’s industrial, operational and environmental challenges.
Chet Namboodri talks about how the Cisco Industrial Intelligence solution can help to improve operational efficiency, safety, agility, and use of assets.

It is no secret that technology allows us to be more productive. Living here in California, I can conduct a meeting with colleagues in India or Egypt while sitting in my living room. I can answer email while sitting in the car waiting for my son’s soccer practice to finish. I can leave work early to go grocery shopping, knowing that I can make up for it at home in the evening.
Juggling work and family may not be quite as convenient for many working women in Africa, Southeast Asia, or Latin America, where reliable power supply, affordable bandwidth, and cultural barriers may complicate their efforts. Still, a growing body of evidence points to a symbiotic relationship between communications technology and the empowerment of women in emerging markets. What’s more, it makes business sense to tap into and facilitate this virtuous relationship. It’s a classic win-win situation, if it is done right.
