  • Focus on manufacturing & lead time performance
  • Transcript : So what do we think the world looks like a few years out, 2010, 2011, something like that? Well, first of all, we think collaborative workspaces are going to be a big darn deal. We actually think one of the trends that we're following right now is that productivity is going to move from personal productivity to team productivity. It moves from where do I do email to where do we get stuff done? So we actually see this as a real trend with kind of think SharePoint done right. SharePoint meets a Wiki, meets Unified Communications meets Web 2.0 deep customization. It really helps with timeshifting and distance-independent team collaboration. One of the things I love is I spend a lot of time focused on the mobile industry. We're all holding mobile phones. Everybody in this room has a vested interest in making sure Cisco continues to get a buck, either off desktop phones or in helping manage mobile phones as they come into being a primary way that people collaborate. And the experts are evenly divided. There's a whole bunch of people out there building one device does it all communications devices. It's going to be my phone, my e-mail, my iPod, my you name it. But there's a whole bunch of other people that are in the every device is simple, but they work together seamlessly. So there is all whole other school of thought out there that it's more like I have a very simple, razor-type mobile phone and I've got a different email device and a different iPod. But there's kind of the near-field communication, so when they're together they can all share wireless, they can all share connectivity and work together in some pretty interesting ways. And we'll talk about a couple of the things that my team's been doing around that. I don't know why it says road band. Mobile broadband is widely deployed. And, if anything, broadband is getting more complicated, not simpler. There is no convergence. There's WiFi stuff going everywhere, lots of high-bandwidth connections, WiMAX and 4G cellular are emerging with two or three different incompatible technologies. And the 700 MHz spectrum auction here in the U.S. in the next couple of months, it could be a very extremely profound thing for all communications. So is everybody kind of familiar with this that you know what I'm talking about anyway? Basically, this is where the government is getting ready to auction off some of what is currently the analog TV bands to be used as broadband over-the-air Internet, and communications stuff. What makes this particularly interesting is, number one, it's very high-bandwidth. Number two, it penetrates walls really well. So we're into a situation now where pretty much anywhere you can get a decent over-the-air television signal, you could get a high-bandwidth two-way Internet connection through the air. A very, very interesting auction. Clearly the AT&T's of the world and Verizons are weighing in, but our friends up the street at Google are talking about bidding on the spectrum. And a few other people as well. Could have a real effect on our industry. Thin clients on every device. Some devices are generic browsers, some with data caching. But it really appears that things are moving towards thin in a big way. Author’s Original Notes: 1) One Time Zone, Real-time: In a global workforce people are “out of phase” because of time zone and work schedule differences. How does a global business keep time sensitive processes in continuous motion - 7x24? 2) Working Moments: The lines between work hours and business hours are blurring. We are moving from the concept of contiguous “working hours” to fragmented “working moments.” How does a business support and leverage this new work-life paradigm? 3) Mobility and Uniformity of Experience: Mobile workers are hopping between high, low and no bandwidth. How does a business deliver uniform, rich interaction in such a landscape? 4) Valuing Quality of Experience: Rich-media delivers intimacy and subtlety that can only be communicated by the human voice, facial expressions and body language. How can a business value of “Quality of Experience” and justify the investment in rich-media? 5) Collaborative Communities: Work is mostly organized around functional communities having varying life spans. How can a business organize, communicate and share information in globally dispersed communities / teams? 6) Secure, Guaranteed, and Compliant: Human interaction is unstructured. Decision support information is semi-structured. Transactions are highly structured. Community collaboration blends all three. How can a business ensure that collaborative interaction is secure, delivery is guaranteed when necessary and that such interactions are auditable in an increasingly regulated world?

  • Some of these are trends also need to re-word titles arent worded correctly
  • this slide needs to have each competency on its own row….so need to add more rows to fit all of them 1 arrow to right for every 2 to left Add one more arrow to the left to keep balance Product Development
  • Satisfaction isnt correct word KPI need and ‘S need to fix ideas alittle What are Cisco’s current KPIs? How do these KPIs support the recommendations?

  • What is WiMAX ?
    • WiMAX is a wireless digital communications system, also known as IEEE 802.16
      • Intended for wireless metropolitan area networks
    • WiMAX can provide broadband wireless access:
      • Up to 30 miles from fixed stations
      • 3 - 10 miles from mobile stations
    • In contrast, the WiFi/802.11
    • wireless local area network
    • standard is limited in most
    • cases to only 100 - 300 feet
    Source: http://www.wimax.com/education
  • The Burning Platform
    • Demand vs. industry capacity down
      • Creates price resistance & challenges to sustaining margins
    • Price-focused competitors from India & China are growing
      • Threatening Cisco's dominance in emerging markets
    • Product development by competitors can outperform CISCO products and new technical standards will make them outdated
    • Not enough people to cover transitioning customer base
    • Service providers’ purchasing patterns are becoming more uneven
      • Accuracy in Forecasting Sales
      • More rigid acceptance requirements are making the sales to implementation process more complex, and cycle time is increasing – Leading to slow revenue recognition
      • Focus on lead time performance is required
