CISCO shines with the server business

Mighty server players are facing a tough time as well as stiff competition from new entrants in the space. HP and IBM are no longer hot favorites in the server domain as they have lost their marketshare significantly in the last couple of years, especially the last quarter results and shipment figures as shown by Gartner.

The company’s server business has jumped 31% in the last quarter.

NetIQ gets Cisco Compatibility Certification

NetIQ Sentinel 7.2 has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) through integration with Cisco Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid).

IT and the Line of Business (LOBs) to shape Technology consumption together

In only a few short years, Cloud Computing has altered the information technology (IT) landscape for both large enterprises and midsize businesses — and this is the beginning of a larger transformation.  Cisco estimates that there were “only” about 200 million things connected to the Internet in the year 2000. Driven by advances in mobile technology and the “bring your own device” (BYOD) trend, among others, this number has increased to approximately 10 billion today. A dramatic upsurge to 50 billion connected people, processes, and things is expected by 2020. The resulting Internet of Everything (IoE) will drive the next wave of explosive Internet growth, with Cloud as a pillar of this transformation.
But what is the current state of IT Cloud consumption? What will IT organization of the future look like, and what will IT decision makers do to be successful in this changing environment? In a wide-ranging global study, Cisco Consulting Services (CCS) along with Intel, sought to pinpo…
