Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.
Hyperconverged infrastructure is radically shaking up the IT landscape, creating huge operational and economic benefits. Tier 1 applications such as Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle and others are among the many beneficiaries of this new generation of infrastructure. However, there are many vendors jumping on the market bandwagon, and not all systems that are marketed as hyperconverged really fit the criteria. IT organizations need to do their homework to ensure they are selecting true hyperconverged solutions.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
Hyperconvergence has been receiving a tremendous amount of attention because it represents the next step in the evolution of IT resource delivery. This technology takes the idea of integrating compute, storage and networking that started with converged systems design and has improved on those architectures by adding deeper levels of abstraction and automation. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors promise simplified operation and the ability to quickly and easily expand capacity by deploying and launching additional modules; simplicity has been the key selling point for the HCI pioneers.
As HCI ventures even deeper into the enterprise and cloud environments, the architectures will need to become more efficient, agile and adaptable to help IT professionals shoulder the burden of rapidly growing data sets and workloads. This report discusses the benefits of HCI and the enhancements that must be
made to expand HCI deeper into the mainstream enterprise datacenter.
Miercom was engaged by Cisco Systems to independently configure, operate and then assess aspects of competitive campus-network infrastructures from Cisco Systems and from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). The goal was to assemble the products of each vendor strictly according to their reccomended designs, and using their respectice software for campus-wide network management, control, configuration and monitoring.

The DNS is an often-overlooked protocol. Historically, many companies believed they could either run their own DNS service in-house or simply use a bundled option provided by their hosting or CDN provider. However, with the rise in DDoS attacks and continued migration to the cloud, the mission-critical nature of the DNS has become quite apparent to companies around the world. As a result, many are searching for a managed DNS provider.

In this eBook, weíll make the case for why you need to rethink DNS from several different and important perspectives. The first is to rethink your DNS choices. Choices around solutions, vendors and configurations that were made several years ago may no longer be optimal in todayís environment. The second is to rethink the importance of DNS for building digital resilience, including the need for a secondary DNS configuration. The third is to rethink the value of DNS as it has evolved to be so much more than simple domain name resolution. Modern DNS with intelligent response capabilities continues to open up new opportunities for traffic steering across hybrid resources.

Continuous Delivery has become somewhat of a buzzword in the software development world. As such, numerous vendors promise that they can make it a reality, offering their tools as a remedy to the traditional causes of project delays and failure. They suggest that by adopting them, organizations can continually innovate and deliver quality software on time, and within budget.
Clinical decision support solutions are critical to delivering quality care, but how do you know which tools are most effective? In this video, David Bordewyk, national director for clinical solutions at Truven Health, explains five considerations for evaluating current or prospective solutions. First, the tool should provide evidence-based, actionable recommendations. Learn how to determine whether thatís the case, as well as how to identify tools that provide comprehensive information, information thatís consistent, and information thatís easy to find and access. Additionally, the tool should provide access from multiple types of devices and the vendor should offer ongoing user training and support.

Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

Going with a single-vendor collaboration platform is an easy call, right?
Employees can communicate and share more easily, and your IT team only has to deal with implementation from one vendor, not dozens.
But, in case youíre still pondering, here are five reasons a collaboration suite makes sense:
Saved time and increased productivity
Lower costs and less complexity
End-to-end security compliance
Scaling at your pace
Control over the back end
