  • Agile in Action – eStore and Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

    Caroline Te Aika
    25 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    We are hearing so much about Agile and Fast IT at present and so I wanted to share an example of a key Agile concept in action within Cisco IT – that of ‘Minimum Viable Product’ (MVP). This simple yet powerful concept empowers you to get your product out into the marketplace as quickly as possible with only the essential feature sets. From here, you can gain experience, hear what your users have to say and assess your next steps.// [...]

    18 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    Stepping into the Milan conference center (MiCo) it became clear not much could prepare you for the magnitude of the event that is Cisco Live. It’s a Sunday afternoon, but the venue is alive and buzzing with staff making final preparations for the week ahead.// DJ CLEUR has the lobby pumped with some classic tunes and every surface is plastered with the Cisco logo. You’d be forgiven if you thought this was a Cisco building, the conference center no longer [...]

    Christoph Nienhaus
    4 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    Change happens either with us, by us or to us. Especially during the 3 Day IT Management Track at Cisco Live in Milan. We heard many things about leadership, disruption, change and innovation, and why it is the most important for leaders to listen, while sending the right signals to the audience. As Kevin Murray from the Good Relationship group stated: “People are afraid of ‘change’ but love to ‘innovate’ – so tell me the difference between ’change’ and ‘innovation’ [...]

  • Open MPI: behind the scenes

    Jeff Squyres
    9 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    Working on an MPI implementation isn’t always sexy.  There’s a lot of grubby, grubby work that needs to happen on a continual basis to produce a production-quality MPI implementation that can be used for real-world HPC applications. Sure, we always need to work on optimizing short message latency. Sure, we need to keep driving MPI’s internal resource utilization down so that apps get more use of hardware. But there’s also lots of “uninteresting” — yet still critically important — stuff [...]

    Jeff Squyres

    The next MPI Forum meeting will be in Portland, OR, USA, in early March . One of the major topics on the agenda will be voting on the MPI 3.1 standard. You might be wondering what’s new in MPI-3.1. I’m glad you asked. First, I want to remind everyone that participation in the MPI Forum is open to anyone.  Yes, that’s right, you, too can show up at an MPI Forum meeting and help shape the future of parallel computing!  (just register ahead of time, please) [...]
  • Tree-based launch in Open MPI (part 2)

    Jeff Squyres
    21 Jan 2015 | 5:00 am
    In my prior blog entry , I described the basics of Open MPI’s tree-based launching system over ssh (yes, there are still some valid / good reasons for using ssh over a native job scheduler / resource manager’s parallel launch mechanisms…). That entry got a little long, so I split the rest of the discussion into a separate blog entry. The prior entry ended after describing that Open MPI uses a binomial tree-based launcher. One thing I didn’t say in the last entry: the tree-based [...]
  • Tree-based launch in Open MPI

    Jeff Squyres
    19 Jan 2015 | 5:00 am
    I’ve mentioned it before: the run-time systems of MPI implementations are frequently unsung heroes. A lot of blood, sweat, tears, and innovation goes into parallel run time systems, particularly those that can scale to very large systems.  But they’re  not discussed often, mainly because they’re not as sexy and ultra-low latency numbers, or other popular MPI benchmarks. Here’s one cool thing that we added to the runtime in  Open MPI a few years ago, and have continued to improve on over the [...]

    As usual, in the post-Supercomputing / post-US-Thanksgiving-holiday lull, the work that we have all put off since we started ignoring it to prepare for Supercomputing catches up to us.  Inevitably, it means that my writing here at the blog falls behind in December.  Sorry, folks! To make up for that, here’s a little ditty I wrote to tide us all over until we all return after the new year.

  • Cisco Global Cloud Index: Innovation and Integrated Experience Are Keys to Driving a Successful Campaign

    Ying Shen
    19 Feb 2015 | 3:44 pm
    For the past four years, Cisco has been at the forefront of forecasting trends in global and regional data center traffic, data center virtualization, cloud computing and more. And in those years, a quick press release, perhaps a timed blog post and a bit of industry buzz have herald the arrival of a new Global Cloud Index (GCI) study. But, with the fast-paced accessibility of social media and news being just a quick “like,” “share,” or “tweet” away, our social [...]

    Tradeshows and events are practically synonymous with the technology industry – after all our industry produces some of the largest ones in the world. Whether it’s unveiling new products or participating in keynote sessions, today’s conference experience does not begin and end on the show room floor. Rather, social media is the heartbeat of the event – shaping how attendees, partners, influencers and customers experience the show in real-time. In my role at Cisco, I’ve seen first hand how the [...]

  • The Seven Deadly Sins of User Access Controls: Part I

    Jean Gordon Kocienda
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    2014 was a terrible year for corporate data breaches . If there is to be any silver lining, information security professionals must draw lessons from the carnage. A good place to start is to identify common denominators. Several of the most damaging incidents started with phishing emails into office (or contractor) networks. Social engineering has gotten so sophisticated and targeted, we can hardly blame the employees (sometimes high-level executives) for clicking on legitimate-looking links. Once an attacker establishes his credentials as the compromised employee, he potentially can gain…

  • The Advice Advantage: How Banks Can Close the ‘Value Gap’ and Regain Customer Trust

    Paul Jameson
    19 Feb 2015 | 7:29 am
    Today’s banking consumers are used to experiences that reflect their likes, dislikes, past histories, and even their future plans. But not always from their banks. These kinds of interactions are more common when buying an online book, streaming a movie, or planning a vacation. Despite numerous omnichannel initiatives, many banks continue to lag in providing contextual, relevant, and convenient experiences to their customers. And while many customers yearn for personalized financial guidance, a Cisco survey of 7,200 smartphone users and bank [...]

    Wealth Management firms are spending billions on IT to differentiate in the market place. Yet the question remains, can “Big Data” have a material impact on the business? Can it deliver business outcomes by reducing risk, increasing assets under management, driving profitability, client satisfaction, products per client, client and financial advisor retention, all while improving the cost/income ratio and return on equity? These are questions that are being discussed in board rooms across the financial industry and topics that I [...]

    You order a movie online and additional suggestions pop up, based on a deep knowledge of your likes and dislikes. You plan a vacation and similar suggestions appear, reflecting your financial state, the climate in which you live (and may hope to escape for a time), and past travel history. These convenient, personalized interactions are common today — and even expected. Yet according to a Cisco survey of 7,200 retail banking consumers in 12 countries, customer expectations for financial services are [...]

    The accelerated growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) already has created a cascade of changes across public sector. With more devices producing more data (and demanding more IT services), government agencies have been working to add more storage, security, increase network bandwidth and system management tools – all while supporting a growing range of applications which let them take advantage of their mountain of new data.

    It’s no secret that federal agencies are increasingly adopting or at least “dipping a toe” into the cloud computing pool. Private and public cloud environments offer agencies the opportunity to reduce costs, increase agility, and improve flexibility to meet their mission-critical objectives. However, concerns over the security and control of data are two major reasons many agencies aren’t moving to the cloud. In fact, a new Cisco-sponsored survey found that security topped federal IT leaders’ wish list when it comes to evaluating [...]

We established several “listening posts” – ways for us to get feedback. Analytics and metrics were one way. Another way was a feedback capability right within the application. We encouraged our users to use the feedback feature to report problems, but to also make feature requests or [...]
  • The Steely Dan Contact Center: When “Do It Again” Isn’t a Hit

    Zack Taylor
    24 Feb 2015 | 11:21 am
    In 1973, the group Steely Dan burst onto the music scene with two hits from their first album “Can’t Buy A Thrill.” Setting the standard for obscure lyrical references, a loyal following for the band endures even in 2015. One of the hits, Do It Again raced up the charts as a pop-music rarity – a hit song in a minor key. Most Steely Dan fans have concluded that it’s about a gambler that must return to the tables. For a vintage [...]
  • Prove Your Collaboration Expertise with Cisco Certifications

    Tejas R Vashi
    17 Feb 2015 | 7:30 am
    The way we work – and where we work – has changed immensely in the past decade alone. That transformation will continue with the ongoing proliferation of communications devices. According to Gartner, an estimated 40% of the workforce will be mobile by 2016 . In addition, more organizations have employees in different buildings, cities, states, and even countries. Collaboration is critical to business success and innovation, but the changes in the workplace require new ways to collaborate. No longer can you rely on being able to huddle at the [...]

    Andy Johnston
    11 Feb 2015 | 7:10 am
    In my last post I talked about the impact that low-effort experiences can have on customer satisfaction.  I singled out my home broadband provider for criticism, and so thought it only fair that I talk about a recent great experience I had with them. Last month, my provider sent an email telling me that they’d proactively upgraded my home broadband service to 50Mbps.  All I had to do was replace my old cable modem/router.  The process couldn’t have been simpler.   The [...]
  • Back to the Future in 2015: Marty McFly’s Contact Center

    Peter Milligan
    9 Feb 2015 | 6:35 am
    In the 1989 movie Back to the Future II , Michael J. Fox’s character Marty McFly travels to the year 2015. He sees a future with hover boards, holograms, flat-screen TVs, and video calls. Not bad for predictions made over 25 years ago! But the movie didn’t give us a glimpse of what a contact center might look like in 2015. Based on the trends over the last year, let’s consider what Marty may have seen had he traveled to a contact center in 2015 instead of [...]

  • Seven Software Business Models – Part 2

    Timothy Chou
    2 Mar 2015 | 9:30 am
    Many years ago I found myself talking to venture capitalists about the differences between SaaS, outsourcing, ASPs, MSPs, online applications; etc. Also I noticed that my Stanford students had little understanding of the economics of software, so I developed the idea of seven business models to cover everything in the software business, and remove the buzzwords and replace them with economic models. In my previous blog post we discussed the first four models, this post will cover Models Five through Seven. We ended [...]

    802.11ac is the hottest topic of discussion and deployment in WiFi over the past couple of years. Ratified as a standard by the IEEE in November 2013, the first phase of 802.11ac products brought to market is commonly referred to as Wave 1, and provides roughly a 3x improvement in network performance over its predecessor 802.11n: 1.3 Gbps compared to 450 Mbps in 5 GHz respectively when utilizing the maximum channel width and modulation supported .

Sure, some days it can be monotonous, frustrating, and terrible on my back and eyes, but more often than not I find myself elated to be able to intricately manipulate letters, numbers, symbols, and lines to form a beautiful new creation. Being able to see that same elation within the eyes of so many young and eager minds this past weekend, reminded me (once again) of what incredible opportunities we have to further [...]

  • The Seven Deadly Sins of User Access Controls: Part I

    Jean Gordon Kocienda
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    2014 was a terrible year for corporate data breaches . If there is to be any silver lining, information security professionals must draw lessons from the carnage. A good place to start is to identify common denominators. Several of the most damaging incidents started with phishing emails into office (or contractor) networks. Social engineering has gotten so sophisticated and targeted, we can hardly blame the employees (sometimes high-level executives) for clicking on legitimate-looking links. Once an attacker establishes his credentials as the compromised employee, he potentially can gain…

  • Cisco Live! Milan Post-Show Launch Update: Freely customize your ISE Portals Like a Pro!

    Andrew Peters

    The portals that your employees and guests use for enterprise mobility and guest access are a reflection of your company brand and putting your best foot forward means customizing them for a better user experience. The challenge is that customization often requires someone with knowledge of HTML, Java, CSS, and even jQuery skills – in addition to having design skills to properly feature content. While Cisco offers brand new, out-of-the-box customization with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) 1.3, we wanted to give [...]

  • The Dreaded “5-Tuple”

    Tom Hogue
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    If you were to ask any security administrator who had to manage the security policies across an organization, they would probably define the “5-Tuple” as a “hard to understand, cryptic method leftover from the 1990s’ policy management for implementing access control and segmentation capabilities in networks. Despite its complexity, 5-Tuple has been a mainstay in performing access control and segmentation for decades. However, Cisco has provided an alternate deployment approach to the pains of the “5-Tuple” approach to managing security [...]

    Eric Wenger
    27 Feb 2015 | 1:40 pm
    The world’s economy is increasingly interconnected. Continued economic growth stems from companies being able to move data freely across borders without being caught between conflicting legal requirements.  Governments also face challenges in their efforts to protect public safety when data needed to conduct lawful investigations are stored in the cloud. Internet users, in turn, expect that their email will receive protections that are equivalent to those afforded paper documents. Therefore, the challenge we face is to develop a modern, efficient, transparent mechanism that [...]
  • Cisco Statement on FCC Decision to Regulate the Internet

    Jeff Campbell
    26 Feb 2015 | 11:42 am
    “When the FCC Chairman’s office originally unveiled open Internet rules last year, Cisco cheered the proposal, because we support an open Internet and believe that balanced rules that protect consumers and prevent anti-competitive behavior are necessary and appropriate. Unfortunately, the rules adopted by the FCC today bear little resemblance to the original proposal. They impose far-reaching Title II regulation on Internet access and services. We believe this will inhibit investment in wired and wireless broadband and limit consumer choice in [...]

In making this decision, the IEEE supported those companies who are willing to both grant and receive licenses for patents required for use in IEEE standards on reasonable terms.  We congratulate the IEEE for resisting pressure from the few who wanted to use the patent system to force unreasonable costs on makers and users [...]

    The FCC today unanimously adopted new rules that will require improved location data to be delivered to 911 call centers from wireless phones. This decision is an important step forward in generating a dispatchable address from wireless phones located indoors, helping ensure that first responders can reach victims as quickly as possible. When fully implemented, technologies like these will help save lives. But there is considerable work to be done, and Cisco will work with first responders, service providers, the FCC [...]
