Editors Note (by Lauren): In the delightful haze of posting a blog at midnight last night, I accidentally posted Eric’s blog to Mobility instead of the Borderless blog. If you came here looking for his full post – you can find it here: http://blogs.cisco.com/borderless/infrastructure-for-megatrends/ and the introduction is below for your reading pleasure.
In my job as Cisco’s Field & Sales CTO for Borderless Networks in the Cisco EMEAR Theatre, I have the privilege of working directly with many Cisco customers and partners. The majority of these folks are what you’d call “Technical Decision Makers” and CTOs. They’re the IT leaders who do the planning, the strategy, and work on the evolution of their infrastructure.
And frankly, in my 20 years in the IT industry, I have never witnessed such a perfect IT storm!
We are in the midst of a time in IT, where, for most organizations, the current megatrends are having a profound impact on the relevance of their IT. This is felt in both the infrastructure technologies as well as the solutions required to support those megatrends.
