  • Purpose of this slide:To give you a chance to talk with the CIO about his/her business drivers and corresponding IT initiatives.To reinforce that we understand successful strategies aren’t about bringing the latest processor to market or the switch with the highest speeds/feeds, etcBackground:How does a CEO see their business and how does the CIO see their DC capabilities to support them.Businesses are typically under 3 huge pressure points around Business Growth, Margin and RiskFor Growth, how does the business respond to the market quickly and drive market Reach for example in new geographies or new Branch openings. Furthermore how can the business gain better insight with Market Responsiveness (new services), CRM for Customer Sat. & Retention or drive Customer Expansion: Scaling for Mergers and AcquisitionsThe Data center capabilities can help drive growth and drive the business. By enabling the ability to drive new service creation and faster application deployment through service profiling and rapid provisioning of resource pools, the business can enable service creation without infrastructure spend, and drive increased service level agreements.Cost cutting, margin, efficiencies are all a critical element for business, particularly in today’s economic climate. Whilst the business maintains a laser like focus on cutting cost and increasing margins through Customer Retention / Satisfaction, Brand awareness and Loyalty and better ROI for investments, the efficient, agile data center is driving service Optimization, service quality and customer value through cloud based services and using a robust converged architecture to reduce costs, whilst simultaneously enhancing the applications experience and increase productivity through a scalable platform for Collaboration tools (UC on UCS). All these areas, ultimately help the business balance the cost of Maintenance V’s Innovation spend, freeing up more resources for innovative new technology, and less on maintaining legacy infrastructure.Finally, the element of risk in a business must be minimsed and mitigated. Whilst the business is focused on Governing and Monitoring Changing Compliance rules and Regulatory environment, they are highly concerned with Security of data, policy management & access. The DC must ensure a consistent policy across services, so there is no compromise on quality of service V’s quantity of services, and whilst enabling the Speed of Delivery through policy-based provisioning, ensuring Integrated management can reduce the control points. Furthermore, the business needs the flexibility to roll out and try new services quickly, whilst being sure they can retract them quickly (if they prove unsuccessful), with limited impact.All these areas show how closely the IT environment, and the DC in particular, can have a major impact on the business.
  • Executives are realizing the strategic implications of the cloud—specifically, how it is dramatically changing IT’s relationship with the business. As reflected here, Business Agility – including time to market, improving customer experience, etc., attributes that bring business impact – is the top driver for cloud computing, which industry experts say is the real payoff for cloud computing, versus cost efficiency which is more near-term.
  • A theme we keep hearing from IT leaders at many of our customers is that they want to use cloud computing as a real game changer. We believe this is because IT has found itself in a perfect storm over the past couple years.The first storm is not new, but it’s a big one, and that’s complexity. As we’ve all been saying for years, the layers and layers of complexity in IT make it increasingly slow and expensive to change or add new business services. We used to be able to throw more people at money at the problem by hiring more people, or buying new hardware and new tools, but now that brings us to our second storm. Thanks to the great recession, throwing money at complexity is no longer an option for most companies today because we are expecting fairly flat IT budgets going forward.And if that's not all hard enough, the business isn’t holding still waiting for us all to figure this thing out and catch up. The recession didn’t slow down the business appetite for technology, and that’s the third storm. The business is asking IT to do more and do it faster than ever before. In our wired society the business simply wants more technology than even the most efficient IT organization can supply by itself.And so IT's stuck in between these two opposing forces with an unsustainable gap between business demand for IT and IT's ability to supply it all as an individual organization. So this is why we believe incremental improvements are not enough, and why people are looking to cloud to change the game.

  • Automation:The act of leveraging technology (software, hardware or combination) to automate common or repeated procedures and/or tasks performed by personnel.Examples Include:Server/Blade ProfilesTemplate DeploymentVM Provisioning

  • With Cisco’s Unified Management for cloud computing, we provide each of these key components – with Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (providing self-service portal, service catalog and orchestration), Cisco Network Services Manager (for policy-based dynamic network provisioning), and Cisco UCS Manager (for policy-based infrastructure provisioning of compute resources, whether physical or virtual).The Cisco Unified Management solution complements our broad ecosystem of partners, including VCE’s Vblock (with EMC storage and VMware) as well as NetApp’s FlexPod architecture – with open APIs to integrate with the most common third party systems and infrastructure vendors in a multi-hypervisor environments – allowing you to preserve and extend the investment in your existing management tools. Our management solutions are designed to enable IT-as-a-Service, for deploying your private cloud and evolving to a hybrid cloud model. And unlike other converged infrastructure systems, you don’t need to rip and replace your existing service management and systems management tools – we’re not trying to replicate those tools, instead we provide you with the flexibility to integrate with those systems. 
  • The impact for our customers is taking what was very long and complex legacy management process – that can take weeks for end-to-end, often manual delivery of a request, from the upfront architecture and design of the system to the deployment – to minutes in an automated self-service provisioning environment.And this is exactly what we did at Cisco IT, which deployed Cisco UCS and Nexus – together with Cisco Intelligent Automation for their private cloud.

  • Bringing the conversation back to the crawl walk run sprint model, this is our recommended pathway for a customer deploying clouds along a safe and sane roadmap. Starting with a basic cloud and moving forward will ensure a successful journey.
  • Starter Edition technical specific details all of the key use cases and what we support. TAC will support of all these items.
  • Trusted Model: Model an out of the box cloud operating model and set of functionality Leverages learnings from many of our customers and Cisco ITStandard functionality set that can drive end user adoption in a real cloudReduce time and cost risks in implementing a cloud by adopting a proven operational model that has been running in Cisco and its customersA low risk, reasonable investment for IT to start producing the benefits of private cloud Fast implementation time to first end user provision, at an affordable startup cost, with a low TCOA logical and low-risk path for updates and upgradesGain experience in running a cloudGo beyond the technology to the processes and people and the management of change Become a well informed and educated IT shop around pragmatic usage of the cloudAfter you have run the starter edition for 3 months, you can explore next steps and phases such as upgrading the CIAC 3.0 or adding integrations and new services
  • As you create and evolving your long term cloud vision and strategy, Starter Edition is the best and first step you can take to get immediate short term resultsDeploying Starter Edition expands your organizational readiness (technology, user adoption, IT processes) for the next phase Virtual Data Centers within your organizationWith Starter Edition you put in a great extensible framework on which to add functionality for your enterprise and datacenter such asImage managementMultiple hardware vendorsMultiple hypervisorCMDB / ticketing integrationFinancial Showback / Chargeback
  • Even though the Starter Edition does not support sophisticated networks (it does support organization separation via vlans) managed services and smaller SPs may want to use SE for on premise or hosted private clouds
