According to IDC, by 2020, organizations able to analyze all relevant data and deliver actionable information will achieve an extra $430 billion in productivity benefits over their less analytically oriented peers. In this session, Mike Flannagan, Vice President of Cisco Data & Analytics, will showcase how industry leaders are benefiting from deploying this strategy.��
BRKCOC-1330 - Inside Cisco IT: The Next Generation Network (2016 Las Vegas)Today, the demand for enterprise networking extends well outside conventional borders of enterprise networks. The identity is becoming the new corporate perimeter, the network data - the big data, internet is becoming the internet of things and everything, the device proliferation is exploding, the work is becoming a not a location, but a human function, the client server architecture is transitioning from client - server model to increasingly mobile and cloud based paradigm, the video is becoming part of the baseline productivity tool - essentially becoming the new audio. In the next 2-3 years, the role and the importance of the virtual (extended) network and its relevance to the end-to-end IT service delivery will become a strategic business differentiator. However, the network architectures have not been changed significantly for the last 20 years. That creates an inflection point between the network architectures and the requirements of the new business realities and calls for increased importance of the new network architectures. We believe Cisco IT is addressing possible answers to these challenges and our blueprint provides Cisco enterprise with an intelligent network fabric architecture connecting anyone, anywhere, from any device, to any application or service with excellent user experience, reliably, securely, and seamlessly.

When faced with these issues, the SIP Normalization and Transparency Features of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and of Cisco Unified Border Element provide tools for the administrator to deal with incompatibilities caused by SIP messaging mismatches. This session will review some SIP basics and SIP header terminology before introducing the SIP Normalization Feature used by Unified CM and CUBE. We'll look at how to set up SIP Normalization Features, how some simple scripting makes this feature so powerful, discuss the kinds of information you'll need before writing a script, and cover scripting basics. We will also look at SIP Transparency as a means to provide interoperability with SIP headers being passed between systems. During this session we will look at when to use Unified CM and when to use CUBE, and, finally, we'll show some real-world examples of SIP Normalization Scripts used to solve interoperability issues.Join the Cisco Spark Room for this session.

BRKCOC-3001 - Inside Cisco IT: Automating ITIL Configuration Management for OpenStack (2016 Las Vegas)In the traditional, non-virtual datacenter, enterprises have evolved ITIL systems such as CMDB and DNS to manage their infrastructure. However, with OpenStack, there is no automatic method to integrate the VM creation with these features. This presentation will provide a detailed, in depth engineering analysis of the design we are developing to automatically update DNS and CMDB when a VM is created. Conversely, we'll automatically remove the CMDB record and DNS record when the VM is destroyed. These methods will be automatic and will not impact the creation or deletion of the VM; nor will they change the API calls to create/destroy VMs in OpenStack.

BRKVIR-2931 - End-to-End Application-Centric Data Center (2016 Las Vegas)Although automation and virtualization have been of important use at Data Centers for resource optimization, the evolution of how applications are built nowadays demand for a new application-centric approach, mainly due to the current mobile-cloud application development reality; the fast growingBigData way" of building scale-out applications and the upcoming Internet of Everything effect. Because applications' outcome and associated data are the ultimate asset that - altogether with the network - touches multiple layers within the Data Center, an application-centric approach to its infrastructure is what's really needed, even further as almost all Data Centers do run legacy, traditional and cutting edge applications side-by-side, each of them with distinct infrastructure requirements. This session will cover Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI), its elements and how it actually works. However, this session will approach this by inviting you to aend-to-end journey" inside an Application Centric environment. This ACI environment will be a full policy-based forwarding infrastructure and the journey will go through a secure multi-tenant implementation inclusive of both physical and virtual workloads as well as inclusive of storage, L4-L7 services and WAN connectivity. All these elements together will then become the sources for a ACI policy-based forwarding required for effective Data Center planning, design and deployments. Our journey will also cover system management & automation, orchestration tools and how to drive the ACI via API calls and its native Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). Considerations on how to adopt ACI when coming from the current network environment and how these technologies interact are on the scope of this session as well.
