Enterprises are leveraging advancements in what IDC calls “3rd Platform” technologies — cloud, Big Data, mobility, and social — to create new business opportunities and gain competitive advantage. These trends are putting more pressure on IT organizations to transform their datacenter operations to better support business initiatives aimed at reducing costs, increasing revenue, and strengthening customer relationships. This has driven increased demand for converged or integrated systems that provide the tools needed to reduce capital costs, improve operational efficiencies and, ultimately, increase agility within the datacenter.

Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video. Cloud solutions allow contact centers to gain access to new technology capabilities and channels on demand with the ability to scale up quickly. They offer the best technology innovation as well as the ability to scale agents up and down as business needs change. This whitepaper provides background on cloud contact centers, their advantages and the essential considerations for selecting a vendor.

Pulsant is a United Kingdom-based IT infrastructure services provider focused on the small and medium-sized enterprise market. It offers public, private, and hybrid cloud services and a variety of managed, collocation, and professional services. Pulsant was one of the first cloud service providers to embrace software-defined networking (SDN) as a way to simplify its IT infrastructure, unify control of physical and virtual environments, and reduce capital expenses (capex) and operating expenses (opex). After evaluating a number of vendors, Pulsant chose Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) as the best SDN solution for delivering its hybrid cloud services.

Beginning with a brief overview of private cloud computing and the evolution of on-premises private clouds, we will compare Cisco Metapod to options from VMware and the OpenStack community. We’ll also describe Cisco’s unique OpenStack as a Service (OaaS) operating model, and present Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analyses that compare Cisco Metapod to VMware vCloud Director and an OpenStack Do-It-Yourself (DIY) strategy.

This study showed that as companies adopt cloud strategies for sourcing and building IT services, they are both expecting and achieving significant gains in business key performance indicators (KPIs) including revenue growth, strategic IT budget allocation, IT costs, quicker time to provision, and increased ability to meet SLAs. Further, our study showed that as businesses increased their orientation to cloud, these KPI benefits accelerated. IDC has identified five stages of cloud maturity: ad hoc, opportunistic, repeatable, managed, and optimized (in increasing maturity), and while there are immediate benefits from moving even from ad hoc to opportunistic, the benefits accrue and grow as you move up the adoption curve. Organizations studied are realizing $1.6 million in additional revenue and $1.2 million in reduced costs per cloud application.

Technology’s role in business and society has shifted away from largely driving efficiencies to innovating and creating engaging experiences that attract and retain customers. Innovations and business outcomes are fueled by a perfect storm of technology trends in cloud, analytics, machine learning, IoT and the emerging API Economy. The convergence of these technologies has created new opportunities for enterprises to improve business performance by acquiring customers faster while creating brand loyalty. The role of technology expands the interaction with customers beyond the core of the enterprise – away from 100% dependencies on systems of records – and towards real-time, contextual interactions. Businesses are a digital business or they are evolving to become one. This requires enterprises to re-think how they build software architectures.

You need to be ready to host any application anywhere. Our solution adapts to support all of your applications with the simplicity of hyperconvergence. If your IT organization is like most, you are stretched thin to support your developers as they create multicloud-native applications that they deploy across public and private clouds. And you still need to support line-of-business managers with traditional applications as they use both monolithic and cloud deployment models.

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The purpose of this paper is to assess the switching requirements for next-generation campus networks incorporating wired switches, wireless LANs and WAN routers in an intuitive, intent-based network supporting cloud, mobility, IoT and digitization, with pervasive security.

Can your organization afford to wait until after an attack happens to protect your users and your data? Perimeter security provides visibility and control for employee activity only when employees remain on a corporate network. What about roaming users who bypass the VPN? Or employees working in cloud applications? Web gateways only protect employees from threats over web ports 80 and 443. Today’s security must provide comprehensive protection across all ports and protocols to fill the gaps in the security stack. Hear from Eric Ahlm, Research Director at Gartner and Meg Diaz, Head of Product Marketing for Cisco Umbrella. Eric and Meg will address the challenges companies face as they compare modern convenience with the known risks of relinquishing visibility and control, especially as more sensitive data moves to the cloud. Join us for the guidance you need to stay ahead of the curve in 2018. We’ll discuss the right answer for protecting data in the digital age.
