Innovation Talk: Future of Security

Tuesday, June 9 – 3:30-4:30 p.m.

While the Internet of Everything spawns more connections with more devices, we see a corresponding rise in the number of possible attack vectors. At the same time, the nature of those attacks grows more complex and sophisticated. The traditional point-in-time approach to security is no longer a sufficient approach to these more advanced threats, leading more organizations to embrace a threat-centric model that enables greater vigilance and more intensive protection before, during, and after an attack. This Innovation Talk will focus on the strategies and tools today’s businesses are using to better anticipate and guard against the security threats they face, while still providing the availability, access, and performance that users demand.

Innovation Talk: InterCloud/The Future of Cloud

Wednesday, June 10 – 1:00-2:00 p.m.

The Cloud has been one of the landmark paradigm shifts of the past several years as businesses realize the advantages of transitioning more data and computing resources to a Cloud-based model. As the Internet of Everything becomes a reality and drives increased demand for Cloud services, businesses will ask more of their networks and the teams that design, deploy, and maintain them. This session examines how public, private, and hybrid clouds are evolving towards Cisco’s Intercloud. Intercloud, the foundation of Cisco’s cloud strategy, is powered by OpenStack and enabled by Intercloud fabric for workload mobility and ACI for dynamic provisioning the networking, application services, services policies and subnets. Cisco’s vision is to create THE platform for ISVs and Developers to leverage the power of the intelligent Network.

Innovation Talk: The Future of Collaboration

Wednesday, June 10 – 3:30-4:30pm

Collaboration can be a transformative force, especially as the connections among people, processes, and technology become stronger and more relevant. In a world of growing complexity, collaboration can help companies, teams, and individuals find new ways to share expertise, address shared priorities, and leverage complementary skills. During this Innovation Talk, we’ll explore how the latest generation of tools is integrating the mobile, social, visual, and virtual aspects of collaboration to bring people together anytime, anywhere, on any device – removing the barriers to greater sharing of resources and more effective strategies for accomplishing mutual goals.
