At the Cisco Live Event 2014 in San Francisco last week, we heard about plenty of updates, extensions, and new acquisitions to expand the business. The major technologies highlighted were InterCloud, Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), and the Internet of Everything (IoE). Among these new offerings, I reveal that Cisco’s extended big data and analytics capabilities excited me the most. Why? Because its data virtualization techniques can help customers easily analyze large volumes of virtual data, no matter where it physically resides; enhanced video analytics technology could improve the customer experience when checking out in retail stores or waiting for a train; while IoE analytics and digital intelligence increase customer engagement.
What it means to you: Start considering Cisco in new spaces like big data, video, digital intelligence, and IoE analytics. Large organizations like telcos and banks, with huge quantities of distributed data could consider its data virtualization technology as a way to start using big data analytics before consolidating that data. Municipal governments can learn from Chinese cities, which are seeing ever-increasing numbers of vehicles, and should consider video analytics, digital intelligence, and IoE analytics to optimize public transportation and smart parking.
