Let’s take an example of your user mobility requirements. Today it serves a purpose beyond just simple connectivity. Customers expect a flawless experience irrespective of where they are, which device they use.  IT has to stay ahead of the game and is expected to deliver exceptional wireless connectivity and performance for high-density environments, simplify deployments by automating based on intent, route traffic intelligently, personalize services for users based on their location, detect attacks proactively and remediate through automation. All of these outcomes driven by analytics , automation and security are possible with Cisco’s software solutions such as Identity Services Engine (ISE), Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX), Prime Infrastructure, DNA Advantage and Essentials.
