OK, you’ve probably heard similar plays on the title of the Stones’ classic before given all the talk about the cloud. But seriously, the cloud’s the thing and it’s not all talk anymore. Analyst research shows this and we hear it from our customers everyday. From public to private to hybrid, enterprises are adopting cloud into their operating models. And it’s a great opportunity for you, our partners, but only if you seize it.
Today, we’re announcing our Cloud Enabled Enterprise story. It’s a clear vision for what the Cloud Enabled Enterprise of the future will look like.
Network virtualization is transforming enterprise IT. It offers a springboard to the flexibility and agility promised by the cloud. With virtualization, networks can now evolve into new deployment and management paradigms and the enterprise campus and branch can reap the benefits of the data center and the cloud, including centralized control and visibility.
Future enterprise networks need to be agile, secure and fast. Our portfolio of switching, routing and security products is designed to make the new Cloud Enabled Enterprise a reality for our commercial customers. And essential to our strategy is our Open Convergence Framework with our technology alliance partners such as Aruba and Ruckus for wireless LAN, Pulse Secure for secure connectivity, and Microsoft for UCC requirements in the enterprise
This is a great example of Partnering for Business Growth. We’re looking to our partners to help us solve our enterprise customer challenges and help us grow together this year and well into 2016.
