Rapid shifts in the ways that technology and information are consumed and delivered— through cloud computing, big data, social networking, and smart devices—are transforming how companies compete. IT is at the center of the fray, working with business leaders to develop and execute a digital transformation strategy that capitalizes on these major new technologies. In order to lead this transformation, IT executives must focus on three areas: collaborating with business leaders to build a strategic vision, modernizing technology infrastructure, and rebuilding IT organizations to execute against new digital business goals.

In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) present systems that are based on common use cases or engineering priorities. CVDs incorporate a broad set of technologies, features, and applications that address customer needs. Cisco engineers have comprehensively tested and documented each design in order to ensure faster, more reliable, and fully predictable deployment.

Cisco has developed robust infrastructure management tools for your Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS™) data center that work with and extend tools you may already use to monitor, provision, configure, and orchestrate your Microsoft server and application software.
Cisco UCS Director is a vital, certified solution for EMC VSPEX that
supports V125 and V250 models. It delivers unified orchestration,
provisioning, and management across virtualization, computing,
network, and storage from a single-view portal. When EMC VSPEX
and Cisco UCS Director are combined, IT can shift focus from
managing infrastructure to delivering new service innovation.
Cisco ne cesse d'innover afin d'aider les sociétés à réinventer le data center d'entreprise et à délivrer d'excellentes prestations pour un plus grand impact commercial. Dans cet objectif, Cisco a développé de solides outils de gestion de l'infrastructure pour votre data center Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS™). Ces outils se combinent et étendent l'utilité de ceux que vous avez pour surveiller, provisionner, configurer et orchestrer vos logiciels serveur et d'application Microsoft.
En matière de stratégie, le débat actuel entre directeurs et responsables IT porte sur l'agilité de l'entreprise et la réactivité du data center. Les entreprises remplacent peu à peu les architectures informatiques cloisonnées par des infrastructures convergentes au sein desquelles les composants de traitement, de réseau et de stockage sont préintégrés. Cette approche est à même de réduire les coûts tout en améliorant la flexibilité et l'agilité des services IT.
Au cours de l'ete 2012, Forrester Consulting a commence a travaillar sur un projet de recherche commande par NetApp consistant a etudier le ROI que les enterprises sont susceptibles d'enregistrer en adoptant la plateforme FlexPod.
Cisco Unified Data Center unifies compute, storage, networking, virtualization, and management into a single platform. The result is operational simplicity and business agility -- essential for cloud computing and deploying IT as a Service.
This edition of Unleashing IT showcases Cisco’s holistic approach to the future of networking: application Centric Infrastructure (aCI). Promoted by Cisco, Intel®, and ecosystem partners, aCI is a true innovation that changes the way technology is delivered in support of business priorities.
This Technology Spotlight examines key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.

Over the past few years, new IT infrastructure options for enterprise transactional applications have arisen thanks to numerous improvements in storage processing power and the robustness of networking protocols. SAN protocols are no longer the only option for IT storage administrations. VMware, Hyper-V, SQL, and even SAP and Oracle deployments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by NFS, and more recently SMB 3, network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. However, support for NAS protocols alone is not enough. EMC and Brocade understand that supporting enterprise applications requires delivering enterprise storage and networking capabilities to maximize resiliency and performance.
