Wonking Out on Policy


May 29, 2018 - 0 Comments

It’s an election year, so public policy wonks are everywhere. They talk incessantly about the technicalities of public policy. The process is long, with endless debate. Final policy decisions can be fluid and are influenced by which side you’re on, so they’re subjective. However, policy does have a purpose, being a deliberate system to guide decisions and achieve outcomes, implemented as procedures or protocols.

IT has a superior data-driven option for generating and enforcing policy – Cisco Tetration. 

Businesses need policy wonks too. They guide us in creating the IT policies we need to achieve outcomes across areas such as operations, applications, and security. Unlike ideology-driven public policy, however, IT has a superior data-driven option for generating and enforcing policies: Cisco Tetration™.

Tetration delivers pervasive visibility across applications and workloads in your data center, in real time. It uses machine-learning techniques as well as behavior analysis and algorithmic approaches to provide deep application insights. As such, Tetration serves as a robust platform for implementing IT policies, detecting compliance deviations, and aiding efficient operations whether the applications are residing on premises or in the cloud.

With Tetration now included in the Cisco® Business Critical Services portfolio, we help you maximize the return on your investment by providing ongoing data-driven insights with our Data Center Application Intelligence. This gives you unprecedented visibility to set, enforce, monitor, and adjust effective policies across your business.

Our Application Analytics Support provides best-practices leveraging of Tetration data for enhancing your data center resource management by increasing resiliency, performance, and security for your workloads. By doing so, we help you realize value-added outcomes, including centralized policy management, optimization, and security for your strategic applications and simplified operations.

And we do all this because we love wonking-out on policy—so you don’t have to.
