Modern data centers run a combination of cloud-native applications and
microservices architectures alongside traditional applications. Networking teams
are under pressure to deliver services and resolve application issues quickly
while lowering costs for application services. Your IT operations demand agile,
cost-effective load balancing solutions.
In a world characterized by increased virtualization, cloud computing, software-defined networking (SDN), and DevOps — and now containers and microservices — having comprehensive visibility into every flow and packet metadata is essential. This paper examines the need for and business value of pervasive, real-time visibility across the datacenter network. It also looks at the role of Cisco in the market for real-time datacenter analytics solutions.
Today’s organizations are becoming more innovative and dynamic by adopting mobility, IoT, analytics and cloud technologies. With this, come growing demands for network scale, agility and threat protection which call for an intent-based network. The Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) gives you comprehensive intent-based networking across your campus, branch and WAN with robust wired, wireless, and routing solutions.

Application performance and delivery have changed.
Should your network change too?
Cloud is changing the fundamentals of how IT teams deliver applications
and manage their performance. Applications are increasingly deployed
farther from users, crossing networks outside of IT’s direct control. Instead
of enterprise data centers, many apps now reside in public and hybrid cloud
environments. There are even new breeds of applications, built upon
microservices and containers.
Today, IT needs modern solutions that:
? Extend on-premises networks, apps, and infrastructure resources
to the cloud.
? Maintain high levels of performance, user experience, and security
across all applications, including microservices based apps.
? Sustain operational consistency across on-premises and
? Move away from the expense, complexity, and poor performance
of traditional networking methods.
These solutions are available for apps running on Google Cloud Platform
(GCP) through the allia

Just like your business, technology never stops advancing. Each year, there are new ways that technology can automate processes, lower costs, and enhance customer and employee satisfaction - all with the goal of increasing revenue! And while it can be difficult to change how your business works, leaving old methods behind and embracing new technology can help lead your business to more success and growth.
The technology landscape in the financial services sector is vast, ranging from cutting-edge to mission-critical, each having an impact on the industry as a whole. Customer-facing services and back-end operations alike are seeing real benefits from innovation, including greater efficiencies and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
The rate at which technology is evolving is increasing almost exponentially. In the business sector, hardware has given way to software-defined everything, while many on-premises technologies are now offered as a service. Much of the advances in technology over the last few years have been the direct result of the growing ubiquity of the cloud and faster connectivity speeds, both of which have enabled companies to adopt digital transformation technologies to help them work smarter and more efficiently.
The quick-service restaurant industry continues to be a favorite among consumers who look to the sector for a wide variety of food served quickly and at a low price. The speed and efficiency of QSRs, which include the emergent “fast casual” restaurants, match today’s on-the-go lifestyle of consumers across all ages who often are too busy to cook at home.
That said, consumers expect their dining experience at a QSR to be comfortable with conveniences ranging from WiFi connectivity to ordering kiosks and dining area entertainment on large screens or even tableside tablets. They expect the information on menu boards to be accurate and up-to-date and their meal orders to be fulfilled quickly and accurately. Technology is a major enabler in meeting consumers’ expectations while simultaneously helping QSR locations increase operational efficiencies and quality of service.
Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between.
Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.
Retail has been transformed by technology in multiple ways, from the way customers interact with retailers to how products are offered and acquired. Indeed, the entire shopping experience has been redefined and expanded to enable customers to purchase products anytime, anywhere, with any device, from any number of retailers.
Consumers’ changing shopping behaviors and their reliance on technology enables retailers to reach a wider swath of potential buyers, moving well beyond the borders of their physical store locations to new geographies and populations. That said, retailers must understand how to use technology effectively to draw in customers and entice them to purchase, as well as help them improve their operations and enable new, innovative ways to keep customers coming back.
Technology is moving fast and your data center needs to keep up so your business can thrive.

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.
