On the Road to Digital, Where’s Your Map?

- July 18, 2016 - 0 Comments

Digital trends like mobility, IoT, cloud, and analytics are changing the way the world does business.

As a leader, you know these trends offer you the opportunity to innovate, automate, and deliver better experiences to your customers and employees. But you also know these trends create fresh challenges for your network because only the network connects all things digital and must be ready to support the goals of your business.Reed_BLUE_TW3

At Cisco, we realize digital means something different to every industry and organization. And we recognize that all businesses are moving toward digital at different speeds with unique goals. No matter what digital means to you and wherever you are in your digital journey, you need a digital-ready network to get there.

As you’ve probably heard, Cisco is reinventing the network from the ground up with the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA). Our new digital-ready network reduces complexity, decouples hardware from software, and injects greater intelligence into the network.

Jeff Reed noted in his blog last week that “Cisco DNA is a monumental shift on how to design and build networks. It provides an open environment for IT to automate and innovate with a software-driven approach that provides speed and simplicity without compromising security.”

To succeed in the new digital era, you need to evolve your network to an open and software-driven platform. A platform that drives faster innovation, simplifies operations, and reduces risk.

So how will you get to digital?

Different paths with a common requirement: Have a plan.

No matter where you are in your digital journey, you need a network plan – a roadmap for where you want to go and how you’ll get there. Cisco can help with that.
