Based on the Cisco 2013 VNI report, there will be a projected 55% increase in IP Traffic Mobile, 44% increase in Annual Cloud Workload in the next 3 years, and 50B Connected 'Smart Objects' by 2020; increasing the attacks on the Enterprise Surface.

While the Internet of Everything is creating huge opportunities for organizations that can innovate quickly to capture value and remain competitive, it means IT also needs to step up and adopt a new model: Fast IT. A model that is simple, smart, and secure.  Fundamentally, this model means the approach of using architectures becomes even more important, where Compute, Storage and Network must converge with services assured and security enforced in a mobile-cloud world.

In addition to the technology change, you must also change how IT is organized and where it is focused. Industry observers and many CIOs say it is inevitable that IT’s role will become more of an ‘orchestration’ or ‘broker’, managing services and security, and determining which corporate data must be tended to most carefully. IT would also define which services are acceptable to be consumed commercially. This means an evolution of skills and organization within IT. It also implies that the opportunity and challenge for understanding and meeting the real needs of businesses are ahead of us.

Join us at ASEAN Cisco Connect 2014 to know more about the latest IT trends and meet your fellow innovators who will join you in enabling the Internet of Everything.

Mobility | Cloud/Virtualization | Workspace of the Future | Big Data / Analytics


Who Should Attend?
Networking , Video/Collaboration, Security, Business Users


Connecting a mobile experience "your way" without compromise today can make amazing things happen for your business tomorrow. You know that in order for mobility to work well, all the parts have to work together. You need infrastructure and identity. Security and policy. And mobile device management to make it easier to get users onto the network.

Then you need to keep them safe and productive once they get there. You need applications designed and architected to work with mobility. That's why Cisco takes an architectural approach to mobility. We want to save you time and integration costs and make your users happier.

What if you could stop worrying about your mobile infrastructure and start innovating with mobile experiences like learning more about how shoppers shop or how students learn?  That's the big idea behind our Connected Mobile Experiences. It takes you beyond connecting your own workforce. It lets you reach out to your customers and entice them with new experiences. It helps you understand their behavior. Increase their loyalty. Enhance your revenues.

That is what makes Cisco different. Our technology only succeeds if it makes it easier for you to do business. Our success is tied to your success — in mobility and in all things.
