Increase Agility, Stay Competitive with Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud
Increased agility is a popular target for many businesses and their IT teams. They dream of adjusting, almost on-the-fly, to changing business needs by being able to manage and deploy cutting-edge apps when needed. While the goal is clear, that’s rarely the case for the path leading to that goal.
One of the best methods for increasing agility is automation. Removing time-consuming manual processes wherever you can is essential for increasing the business’ ability to react quickly and efficiently. For all the upsides, too much automation too quickly can also lead to problems. Employees may push back against the new methods if they’re unsure of the motivations behind using them. In this way, by solving one problem, a new one has been created.
This is why it’s essential to have an automation solution capable of growing with you. Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite is that type of solution. It can be adopted in small pieces, at a pace that is comfortable for IT and the business as a whole. This means less resistance to new processes as everyone has more time to get used to them and see the benefits for themselves.
Take a closer look at Cisco ONE
So what is Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite exactly? Here’s a look at the solutions it contains and what each one brings to your business:
- Prime Service Catalog – IT used to be slowed down by having to manually process user requests which it received in a number of different ways, e.g., over the phone, via email, etc. Cisco Prime Service Catalog gives users a modern, storefront-styled portal from which to order standardized IT services. Also, in order to ensure corporate governance requirements continue to be met, the Prime Service Catalog provides policy-based controls and approvals and user entitlement and role-based access control among other features.
- Intercloud Fabric for Business – It’s no secret that in recent year’s IT’s control of business technology has been undermined by so-called shadow IT. Folks believe there are easier, more effective alternatives outside of the purview of IT and they go in search of them on their own. Intercloud Fabric for Business can reduce these temptations by allowing the business to build its own, highly-secure premium hybrid clouds. That can put IT back in the driver’s seat of enterprise technology.
- UCS Director – The internet has conditioned consumers to expect to get something at the moment of need – and these expectations have carried into their work lives. It’s when they have to wait that users start looking around for other options. UCS Director addresses these issues by replacing slow, manual data center provisioning and de-provisioning with swift automation. Instead of taking weeks, with UCS these processes can clock in at mere minutes.
- Virtual Application Container Services – Rising compute, storage and network needs have increased interest in private cloud-housed infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings. In order to address that interest, data centers are being rapidly virtualized. Virtual Application Container Services provides preconfigured and integrated virtual services as well as switching and workflow automation tools. These allow it to streamline policy definitions and to make integration and deployment that much easier.
