It’s a really exciting time to be in networking at Cisco! After 30 years in this business, we’ve challenged everything that made us a market leader, so that we could help our customers address the new demands of this era. With Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture (DNA), we are doing that and simplifying IT operations beyond any expectations, at a time when user experience, speed and security are critical success factors as businesses continue to digitize.
You’ve seen the latest DNA innovations that moved us along this transition and heard about Cisco’s Software-Defined Access (SDA). But what does it look like in real life? Having the experience of working with customers day in and day out, I know that when something as revolutionary as SDA hits the market, they want to see proof of it. And in this case, the SDA story speaks to both decision-makers and IT managers.
It’s still early days, but we are already seeing some great success right here in APJ. A very good example is Wipro, one of the largest IT Services Providers in the world, and a long-time Cisco customer in India. With more than 800 Offshore Development Centers (ODC) hosting other companies’ networks around the world, Wipro’s IT environment is as complex as it can be! Modernizing the network has been a top priority in order to simplify IT operations and get the best of a digital network.
Wipro has been on this network transformation journey with Cisco for the last couple of years and has piloted and deployed some of our latest and greatest DNA technologies, only to see phenomenal results – greater security, faster go-to-market and better user experience. With SDA, which has been in test for over 6 months, Wipro has met another level of speed and simplification. Months turned into days. Thousands of lines of code turned into a few clicks.
See the infographic below that summarizes Wipro’s case study, including the main challenges, priorities and results.
