Just keeping the lights on is no longer good enough
We know how important it is that your data center is performing at its best. So outdated platforms have no place there -- consuming more energy than necessary, taking more space than needed, and not keeping up with the pace of business.
With the never-ceasing progression of technology, cloud, desktop virtualization and big data have become hot topics among IT and business professionals. And benefits such as improved manageability, efficient and flexible IT service, and lower maintenance costs give good reason for this. So just keeping the lights of IT on is not good enough.
Whatever IT strategies you are considering, consider that Unleashing IT brings you the latest in IT, so you can make informed decisions.

I’m here today in beautiful Barcelona for Citrix Synergy. It’s remarkable to think that it was only a year ago that Cisco and Citrix announced a strategic, 5-year agreement to accelerate mainstream adoption of desktop virtualization.
Last night the Cisco-Citrix alliance team met at a local restaurant to celebrate our success together. Whenever we get together we realize that our visions are so closely aligned that it’s almost scary. But it’s true. We just come at the same problems from different angles—and that’s what makes our alliance so complementary and compelling. That’s great news for you — our customers and partners — because we’re going to continue to innovate together and bring more of our portfolio to market.
In the spirit of celebrating our partnership I wanted to share four interesting facts you may not know about the Cisco-Citrix partnership.
Over the past year we’ve more than doubled our business together.
Together we have deployed tens of thousands of new virtual desktops to small and large customers across the globe.
Channel partners have increased their overall solutionmargin by as much as 25% by utilizing the resources in the Cisco and CitrixPartner Accelerator.
Citrix XenDesktop is the cornerstone of Cisco’s Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) solution — our strategy to deliver high-quality mobile workspace experience on any device, from anywhere.
If you’d like to learn more about the evolution of the data center, and how Cisco is supporting that mission, it’s a great time to be in Barcelona. VMworld Barcelona kicks off full force today, and there is a great deal to experience.

For the first time, we’re taking the Roving Reporters and Engineers Unplugged abroad! This event will be covered by Josh Atwell (@Josh_Atwell) and myself, and we’re shooting several episodes of our new video podcast, which we’ll be releasing every Wednesday.
We all know something about the evolution of agriculture. Once upon a time, a horse pulled a plow, led by a man who spent days upon days in the fields. And small, local rivers were dammed to redirect water to crops. Today, monster machines plow acres in minutes. And irrigation systems feed farms that are hundreds of miles away.
The long-term evolution of productivity and efficiency was dramatic. But what does the near-term evolution of business processes look like?
I hope you can join Cisco at Gartner’s Symposium/ITxpo. You’ll get near-term business evolution insights from folks like Barry Libenson, CIO of Land O’ Lakes, Inc., and Ron Gilson, CIO of Johnsonville Sausage, Inc. They’ll join Marie Hattar, Cisco’s Vice President of Enterprise Segment Marketing and Bhavani Amirthalingam, World Wide Technology Inc.’s Vice President of Information Technology on Monday, October 22nd at 3:30 pm to discuss the topic, “Work Your Way: A Mobility Strategy for Business Success”.
Cisco’s Unified Workspace makes “Work Your Way” possible
Just a short decade ago manufacturers communicated by phone, by email and by foot. Many business conversations occurred in the same geographic location. Product management, operations meetings and training often occurred on the same campus. A company’s culture and reputation was defined by things like face-to-face meetings, hallway conversations, employee recognition and the attention provided to customers.
Today, employees, supply chains and processes are widely dispersed. Meanwhile, skilled workers are retiring and they’re harder to replace. What evolutionary solutions are manufacturers choosing in order to bring remote and shrinking resources together? Read More »
