July 15, 2011 - 0 Comments

Ok we had a great party  at Cisco Live on Wednesday night at the M resort with the band “Train” and  5000 J Metz !! Well I mean 5000 participants wearing blinking fedora hats 🙂 Well done J Metz -You’re not only a great blogger but definitely  a big influencer on this  part of the planet!!

Talking of the devil, J Metz  (@jmichelmetz) invited on Thursday morning for a chitchat, two experts of the Cisco Intelligent Automation : Wayne Greene, Director Product Management and Rodrigo Flores Technical Architect Cloud.

Wayne (@wmgreene0 ) came to Cisco with the  acquisition of Tidal Software
Rodrigo (@RFFlores) was the founder and CTO of  NewScale and an avid blogger

Both companies (Tidal Software and NewScale) are now part of the Cisco Intelligent Automation BU

The first  question of J Metz was about the customers pain points
– Convergence force the IT organization to implement a software layer to orchestrate and automate the processes and deliver appropriate SLA
– New tensions and challenges result from the growing demand in terms of agility, security  and responsiveness

Watch the video, to discover what Wayne and Rodrigo suggest to address these pain points
