ESG Brief: Cisco AI Network Analytics

Abstract:

Given the increasing complexity and scale of IT environments, it is becoming clear that technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will be required for operations teams to effectively and efficiently manage these environments. This is especially true for the network in highly distributed environments, since it plays an integral role in connecting data centers, clouds, and edge environments. Cisco wants to make its intent-based networking (IBN) solutions smarter, simpler, and more secure by adding AI/ML and multi-domain integration. At this year’s Cisco Live in San Diego, Cisco announced its latest innovations for IBN, AI Network Analytics, along with tight domain integration and additional AI/ML support in DevNet.

ESG Brief: Imanis Data Launches Version 4.0 and Delivers Machine Learning-based RPO

Abstract

Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are pervasive in production environments and require enterprise-class data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities. That’s the problem Imanis Data is zooming in on. Imanis Data is demonstrating that it is squarely focused on product execution and is putting its B-round of $13.5 million from earlier this year to good use. The recent announcement of v 4.0 introduces many new data protection features, including some innovative machine learning-based capabilities.

ESG Brief: The Increasing Business Value of Network Infrastructure

Abstract:

The initial—and typically de facto—party to blame for any IT outage is the network. As a result, the network is perceived to be a problematic burden rather than a strategic resource and is subsequently derided as being a cost center. However, in a time when organizations are increasingly leveraging cloud computing services and pursuing initiatives like digital transformation and IoT, the network is more important than ever.

ESG Brief: Blockchain - Appearing on IT's Ledger

Abstract:

Research conducted by ESG reveals that a healthy number of IT organizations are at least testing the waters of blockchain technology, especially in verticals like financial services, telco, and transportation. As organizations look for ways to leverage blockchain to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs by leveraging a secure, decentralized platform that can help eliminate the middle man of transaction-based aspects of their business, continued proof points across verticals will go a long way to simplify the core concepts and clarify the benefits that organizations can achieve through the disruptive technology in their specific businesses.
