As intent-based networking enters the industry, do you and your team feel ready to take on the analytics and automation opportunities that come with it? If not, you have plenty of company. According to Gartner, by 2020, only 30% of organizations will be ready to fully realize the benefits of investment in analytics and automation (“Building Data Center Networks in the Digital Business Era,” 2017).

To find out what it will take for tomorrow’s networking teams to succeed in the post-CLI era, tune in to in our upcoming live #CiscoChat on Thursday, June 28, at 10 a.m. PST.

This #CiscoChat will be moderated by Jonathan Gilad, who will be joined by Chris Groves, Adam Radford, and Hank Preston. They’ll explore the advantages of open platform-based networks, like simplified operations, proactive management, and real-time security throughout the network. Then, they’ll discuss continuous delivery methods including agile and give tips on recruiting, training, and preparing talent for the future.
