Catch up to the 21st Century, Session 3: Communicate

Brian Avery, Cisco SMB Manager
Communication is one of the most basic human interactions. Ever since Alexander Graham Bell created the ability for two people to talk over a wire without being face-to-face, our communications have evolved rapidly. Between phone systems, mobile phones, video conferencing, text messaging, instant messaging and the world of social media, communication technology has never been more powerful or more complicated.

In the Communicate session, we will start by providing a high level discussion and education about today's Collaboration and Unified Communications technologies, how they differ from past communication platforms and how they can benefit your business. We will then present specific technologies and solutions that you can implement to enable faster, more productive communications internally as well as with your customers and suppliers. Voice, video, instant messaging, presence, virtual meetings, mobility and telepresence are all topics we will touch on and provide you with guidance on how to consider implementing these into your business!

    In this session you will learn how you can scale automation to an enterprise-level through the adoption of a Center of Excellence. Our proven approach creates a cohesive framework for automation and breaks through silos, so your organization benefits from economies of scale and the advantages that automation brings.

  • The IT industry is currently undergoing one of the most radical disruptions in its history, as traditional data centers are being replaced with cloud computing environments. New workloads such as mobile computing, social networking, and big data analytics are driving the need for a more dynamic, agile approach to enterprise computing. It is most prevalent in the networks within and between modern data centers.

    This presentation will discuss a new approach to application-aware data networking based on open industry standards (the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network, ODIN). In particular, we focus on recent approaches to SDN and NFV which deliver real value in next generation data networks. We will also discuss case studies which demonstrate the value of emerging cloud based, software defined environments.
