The world is changing. A new reality is emerging for organizations of every size from every part of the planet. It is called the cloud—a profound evolution of IT with revolutionary implications for business and society, creating new possibilities and enabling more efficient, flexible and collaborative computing models. The term “cloud,” however, holds different meanings to different audiences.
Have you heard about the DevOps revolution? What’s all the buzz about? Find out more in this report by Kurt Bittner, Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. Even if full continuous delivery is not your goal, proceeding toward it can help increase reliability, reduce risks, and decrease costs. As Kurt shares, “The revolution is just beginning, but it’s real — and the time to act is now.”
The term “perfect storm” is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm.
CureSeq’s mission is to “revolutionize next-generation sequencing in the oncology space.” To accomplish this, the company must reach as many researchers and clinical oncologists as possible to help them identify and treat cancer. CureSeq, whose work has been published in scientific journals, needed a reliable online meeting solution to communicate effectively with critical stakeholders around the world. After struggling with several other solutions, the company selected Cisco WebEx to take advantage of the platform’s presentation and document-sharing capabilities and audio quality.
It’s not easy to revolutionize
longstanding technology norms. It
takes vision, knowhow, determination,
and most of all, industry acceptance.
This edition of Unleashing IT
showcases the groundswell of
momentum surrounding Cisco®
Application Centric Infrastructure
(Cisco ACI™), which fundamentally
transforms the way technology is
delivered in support of business
priorities. Hundreds of organizations
are already using the year-old
architecture, and we could not have
achieved such rapid and widespread
adoption without the enthusiasm and
support of Intel®, our networking and
application partners, and customers.

When Information Revolution1 was published in 2006, no Chinese based companies were among the top 10 largest companies by market capitalization. Apple didn’t sell phones. Facebook was something college kids used to connect with their friends. Back then, we talked a lot about the amount of data coming in and faster processing speed.
What we believed then remains true today: Data, and the decision-making process, can be moved throughout the organization to equip every decision maker (automated, line worker, analyst, executive) to make the best choices. By operationalizing analytics, organizations can identify and quantify both opportunity and risk. Information Revolution highlighted SAS’ Information Evolution Model, which helps organizations understand how they interact with their information and how to extract more value from it through analytics.
Today, data is constantly flowing in and out of organizations from electrical and mechanical sensors, RFID tags, smart meters, scanners, mobile devices, vehicles, live social media, machines and other objects. Did you know that a modern plane with more than 10,000 sensors just in the wings is expected to generate more than 7 terabytes a day? And Bain predicts that by 2020 annual revenues could exceed $470 billion for the internet of things (IoT) vendors selling hardware, software and comprehensive solutions.
Analysts believe that all of this data will drive a new type of industrial revolution – one that’s driven by highly accurate, real-time analysis, alerts and actions. Increasingly, machines will automate decisions and simply notify humans with instructions. Consider the promise of the IoT, where any object can be connected to the internet and continuously send and receive data. Gartner says that by 2020, 21 billion IoT devices will be in use worldwide.
We are living in the most revolutionary era in human communication since the invention of the printing press. For the past few years, marketers have ‘woken up’ to consumers who have the power to express their views anytime and anywhere. ‘Social’ is hot, and if nothing else, a response to this awakening. Now, the lines between paid, owned and earned media have been blurred, if not erased. Social media crosses the barrier between the three. It’s fast-paced and chaotic.
We partnered with the research firm Sentient Services and surveyed more than 200 consumers about their attitudes, opinions and beliefs about brands and social media integration. The respondents come from all over the country, with all different incomes, lifestyles, and social media habits. Universally, the data supports what we’ve already seen in action: consumers want to engage with brands that integrate social media, and they prefer to do business with social brands.
Let's get started!

Businesses that embraced the Internet in its early days gained a significant advantage over their competitors; those that did not became irrelevant very quickly.

A variety of technological, demographic and cultural forces are converging at this unique moment in history and stand poised to revolutionize the workplace of the future. Customers are demanding the ability to access the marketplace from anywhere, anytime and on any device; newer employees now expect the flexibility to collaborate continuously with customers and co-workers; and the future-oriented company is striving to make customer interaction and employee communication as invisible, seamless and intuitive as possible.
Integrated Computing (IC), also known as Converged Infrastructure, stands to revolutionize everything about IT. IC takes all of virtualization, storage, networking, and compute into a single system and allows total infrastructure oversight through one console. As you can imagine, the improvements in ease of use, agility, and efficiency are quite substantial.
This is essential because infrastructure maintenance devours about three-fourths of annual IT budgets. IC changes all of that, delivering high efficiency solutions for the lifecycle of system,reducing costs and freeing up valuable personnel.
The evolution of IT awaits.
In a world characterized by ever-increasing generation and consumption of digital information, the ability to analyze data to find insights in real time has become a competitive advantage. An advanced network must address how best to transfer growing amounts of data quickly and efficiently, and how to perform analysis on that data on-the-fly.
The Co-Design technology transition has revolutionized the industry, clearly illustrating that the traditional CPU-centric data center architecture, wherein as many functions as possible are onloaded onto the CPU, is outdated. The transition to the new data-centric architecture requires that today’s networks must be fast and they must be efficient, which means they must offload as many functions as possible from the CPU to other places in the network, enabling the CPU to focus on its primary role of handling the compute.
With its new TriScale Technology, Citrix is enabling a genuine revolution for enterprise cloud networks by providing an unrivaled set of capabilities that smartly scale application and service delivery infrastructures, affordably and with no additional complexity.
