Long live the SD-WAN.http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9948As early as 2011, analyst firms such as IDC were documenting the challenges with Wide Area Network (WAN) environments. In its top 10 predictions for 2011, IDC mentioned the WAN was reaching a breaking point due to the pressures of cloud and security requirements. More recently, Gartner said that “by 2021, more than 65% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on SD-WAN versus traditional routers, up from less than 30% as of 2Q18”. 2018-12-14http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9948/ Cisco SD-WAN Explainedhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9878The cloud is critical to digital transformation. But it has disrupted the traditional WAN architecture that used to link a fixed location to a data center, and now has to link multiple devices, users and things to multiple clouds. Learn how SD-WAN and Cisco SD-WAN in particular can help address these challenges that have arisen in a multi-cloud world.2018-11-28http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9878/ Talking Cybersecurity For Small & Mighty Businesshttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9746Listen to this #CiscoChat podcast to get technology and cybersecurity insights for small and medium business.2018-10-31http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9746/ Why Companies Regret the #1 Reason Driving their Purchasing Decisionshttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9700Cisco just published "Ready, Steady, Unsure – A Technology Perspective into Asia-Pacific’s Readiness for Digital Transformation", a report aimed at finding the gaps and harmonies between companies’ Digital Transformation strategies and their top investments in new technologies and IT infrastructure.

For every dollar spent on manufacturing, another $1.81 is added to the economy. For every employee hired, four jobs are created in other areas such as retail or logistics. As manufacturers turn to digital to increase efficiencies, safety or productivity, they not only accelerate this value chain, they also create a whole new level of personalization from the power plant to the customer by harnessing the power of data. Catch this #CiscoChat Podcast with Ruma Balasubramanian, VP of Enterprise & Digital for Cisco Asia-Pacific and Japan, to know more about the power of digital manufacturing and learn from the experience of manufacturers in the region who are leading the way by adopting disruptive technologies to be more efficient, secure and innovative.2018-07-30http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9106/ Cisco to change the entertainment industry in Japan using ICT http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9074Cisco today announced, together with Sony Music Entertainment jointly promote efficient event management and new services for fans using information and communication technology (ICT). 2018-07-06http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9074/ Why Asia-Pacific will score in Digital Transformationhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9060Maybe Asia doesn’t have the fastest football player, but it sure is the fastest growing region in the world.

Even though Cisco announced it a year ago at Cisco Live US, at this year’s event the most frequently asked question was still: “What is intent based networking?”. Part of the confusion comes from the definition of intent itself. Dictionaries say intent is the notion of “purpose or design”. Marketers will say that intent in the network means “the network knows what to do and it runs itself”. Network engineers, however, have a slightly different understanding and will tell you that the network has always been automated and self-driven. So, what's different and what's changed?2018-06-25http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9035/ Harnessing technology to stay in pole positionhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9008Business Times article by Bastiaan Toeset on how technology can give SMEs the edge to compete in the digital era.2018-06-18http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9008/ Ask An Expert: IDC's Cathy Huang Shares Cybersecurity Insightshttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8942We asked industry analyst, IDC's Cathy Huang to share cybersecurity insights on breach readiness and the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)2018-05-25http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8942/ That time I fat-fingered an IP address and brought the Network downhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8903As a network engineer responsible for a 40,000 user network, I once " fat-fingered an IP address connecting to the regional network gateway, cutting off the entire campus for 15 long minutes. Like me, I’m sure most of network engineers have a story of a time when a simple change had wider ramifications, so the guiding motto has always been “better safe than sorry". The problem with this approach is that demands on the network are increasing.2018-05-03http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8903/ Fun is the new currency in the workplacehttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8856With younger generations joining the workforce, more than ever FUN is now becoming a big part of a strong corporate culture, leading to higher satisfaction, innovation & productivity.
