DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

The Rush Hour That Wasn’t So Rushed

Every morning, many of us have the same routine: the alarm goes off, we (reluctantly) get up and maybe hit the gym before showering and getting dressed. We gulp down a cup of coffee or bowl of cereal as we rush out the door to try and beat the traffic to work. What if there […]

IoE and the Impact on Retail and Consumer Experience

The retail industry is facing unprecedented changes. Since Amazon went online in 1995, technology has been blurring the boundaries between virtual and physical retail space. The third annual Cisco study of consumers found that nearly 80 percent of U.S. consumers use the Internet to shop. Armed with their smartphones, customers now walk into a store […]

All Day Tweet Chat: What Should IoE Connect?

In a world of connected people, process, data and things, what would you connect? That is the question of the day as Cisco hosts an all-day Tweet Chat next week with WIRED Magazine. On Tuesday, July 23 between 6:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. EST, submit an item you would like to see connect to IoE, […]

The Internet of Everything is the Internet of Today

If you were one of the more than 20,000 people who attended Cisco Live Orlando in person or one of the 250,000 who joined us online, you were able to see amazing examples of new ways the Internet of Everything (IoE) is connecting people, process, data, and things. People have asked me how long before […]

IoE – The Technology Transition of All Transitions

When you think about the technology transitions that have happened in just the past 20 years and the number of connections that have been enabled, it’s truly mind boggling. The world wide web was just in its infancy in 1993. The first smartphone was introduced less than 10 years ago, and by 2012, that number […]

IT Challenges in the Internet of Everything

In a previous post, we looked at examples of new business opportunities enabled by the Internet of Everything and the importance of evaluating Data in Motion in new ways. Naturally, the Internet of Everything brings its share of IT challenges. Data collection starts at the network edge, including a multitude of endpoint devices and sensors […]

Opportunities and the Intelligent Network – Internet of Everything

In a previous post, we discussed the importance of the rising tide of real-time, sensor-generated data—aka Data in Motion—that will gather momentum as the Internet of Everything emerges. Unlocking the potential of Data in Motion cannot be achieved by analyzing stored data or by examining historical data. Rather, it requires tools and interactions that capture […]

Capturing Value from Data in Motion in the Internet of Everything

Much has been written about the vast number and variety of things that will soon be connected to the Internet—from milk cartons and alarm clocks to sensors and trains. Already in 2008, that number exceeded the number of people on earth. By 2020, when the next incarnation of the Internet—aka the Internet of Things—is in […]

Small Computer, Big Opportunity: The Moore’s Law Phenomenon

If you’re like me, you probably remember the days when computers meant oversized monitors, loud, humming power supplies, and more cables than you knew what to do with. Thanks to Moore’s Law, those days are long gone. With devices getting less costly, smaller, and capable of more efficient computing power, people and businesses of today […]
