Come September, it is tech. events galore for us here at Insieme Business Unit, Cisco. It is a busy week for us starting Sept 25, with action unlimited at Splunk Conference 2017 (Washington DC). First, let us pick up action at Splunk 2017 conference, where Cisco is a Peta sponsor.

Riding on the success of ACI and Tetration ecosystem momentum, we have forged a strong business partnership with Splunk, with lots on menu in joint integrated solutions, featuring ACI-Splunk and Tetration-Splunk. Our solution suite is feature rich, with comprehensive and extensible use-cases, aided by the openness of our ACI and Tetration platforms. At the Splunk conference next week we are showcasing all these solutions via breakouts, Theater min-presentations and demos featuring ACI, Tetration and UCS, all in perfect alignment with our central theme “Innovation with Analytics-Driven Insights and through integration with Splunk”

Cisco Exec Ranga Rao is leading Cisco presentations and audience are in for a treat, as he sets out to explain how customers are benefiting from the ACI & Tetration solutions with Splunk. Ranga will focus on how Tetration’s application insights and policy enforcement capabilities can augment data in Splunk’s SIEM (Splunk’s SIEM is called Splunk Enterprise Security) and enforce policies to address any compliance issues flagged in Splunk. You will learn how you can leverage Splunk & Tetration together to gain complete visibility into IT and security operations and build agile, secure and compliant data centers. Ranga’s session also features ACI App for Splunk Enterprise, including most recent ACI 3.0  integrations such as ACI Multi-Pod visibility, Micros-segmentation support, ACI App Center support etc., Mark it on your calendar to attend Ranga’s session “Cisco ACI and Tetration integrations with Splunk” on Sept 26 (10.30 am and 1.30 PM) to get a ringside view of our solution excitement.

That is not all. We have cool demos featuring ACI & Tetration with Splunk on the show floor during the entire course of the event. Stop by Cisco booth P6, meet our product experts to get a live demo and get a sneak preview of what’s on the roadmap between the two companies. Cisco has planned impactful breakouts and demos to complement Insieme activities.  The major draw is presentation titled “Cisco and Splunk Innovation through the Power of Integration” by a group of Cisco experts, on Sept 28, 1.20 PM at Ballroom C. Do not miss this session, since it is unique in that Cisco Technical experts present jointly on how the power of Cisco (Security, Meraki, UCS, ACI, Tetration) and Splunk together will make your environment easy to manage, and safer to operate.

In conclusion, I want to draw your attention to the new ecosystem partner web page where ACI-Splunk and Tetration-Splunk solution assets are featured prominently. What is unique about this web page? For starters, user experience like never before. With simple drop-down filters customers can get to required asset intuitively and fast. To further help in selection, we have visual logo based partner selection. You can get to the asset you are looking for in seconds. Screen-capture below  illustrates the ease of use.

Hope you have a gala time at the conference. Do not forget to check our Cisco booth P6, and give us a chance to wow you with both our technology and cool give-aways. Our Cisco team eagerly awaits your arrival.
