As the corporate landscape becomes increasingly mobile, and workers collaborate across a growing range of devices, organizations are implementing an agile and secure unified communications infrastructure. Active deployment of UC technology solutions has been on the rise among enterprises; however, adoption among midsize businesses has been notably slower. Yet in seeking ways to do more with less, midsize organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and converged networks to provide UC solutions. In October 2013, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to dive deeper into the current usage trends and perceptions of unified communications among midsize organizations (100 to 999 employees) across North America, Asia, and Europe.

In March 2014, Cisco Systems commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the Cisco UCS on their organizations. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with a Cisco UCS implementation, Forrester interviewed several customers with multiple years of experience using Cisco UCS. Cisco Unified Computing System and servers unify computing, networking, management, virtualization, and storage access into a single integrated architecture

Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.

Mobile devices have brought advancements to virtually all aspects of modern life and have had transformative effects on businesses spanning all industries. However, the positive business effects that can be brought about by mobility and "going digital" are not enjoyed as frequently within small and midsize businesses (SMBs) as they are within larger organizations. While potential benefits are there, small and midmarket organizations may have fewer resources available and can find difficulty in realizing the full value of the enterprise mobility infrastructure. Often, organizations find themselves having to make trade-offs between richness of functionality and available resources. The following questions were posed by Cisco to Nolan Greene, research analyst with IDC's Network Infrastructure group, on behalf of Cisco's SMB customers.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report. We tested the following switch-configurations of the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X, HP 2920 and HP 5120 product families.

In January 2015, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco TrustSec on their organizations. The Cisco TrustSec solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, Cisco TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks.

Cisco made Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) generally available on November 3rd, 2015. It is an SDN controller that supports apps that make WAN and access networks easier to deploy and manage. Cisco’s focus on a low-risk, incremental approach to adopting SDN will appeal to its user-base. Cisco needs to describe the policy control capabilities benefits of APIC-EM, and also highlight its power as a platform and its ability to distinguish apps from point solution offerings from many other companies with competitive features.

The role of the CIO has changed more in the past five years than any other position in the corporate world. IT leaders are now partners with business leaders, and they are tasked with helping companies respond to competitive pressures as quickly as possible. In an effort to improve overall IT agility, compute and application technology has evolved significantly through the use of mobility, virtualization and cloud computing. However, the network itself has yet to evolve, limiting the overall agility of IT today. These technology shifts have transformed almost every part of the enterprise. However, to maximize the potential of these investments, the network must also transform. Read more to learn how.

This white paper can help you confirm that your small business or distributed enterprise needs to invest in an effective next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution. For small businesses, the NGFW should provide an affordable and manageable entrée to advanced threat protection. In branch offices and the distributed enterprise, NGFWs should provide a detection and enforcement point, analyzing real-time threats and network traffic at scale and benefiting from an integrated and holistic view of the network of which it is a part. In both use scenarios, the NGFW should help your organization defend against targeted and persistent malware attacks, including emerging threats.

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.

Digital transformation has become a top mandate for almost every IT and business leader. The ZK Research 2015 IT Priorities Survey found that 79% of businesses currently have a digital transformation initiative in progress (Exhibit 1). In the digital era, competitive advantage is no longer determined by which company has the best products or even the best people. Market leadership is based on an organization’s ability to analyze information, gain insights and make fast decisions to capitalize on market transitions. One important step in the journey to becoming a digital organization is to transform into an agile business—and it is impossible to do so without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology in 2015 to make IT more agile, according to ZK Research.

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security.
