Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.
Cisco® Unified Access establishes a framework that securely, reliably, and seamlessly connects anyone, anywhere, anytime, using any device to any resource. This framework empowers all employees with advanced services, taking advantage of an intelligent, enterprise-wide network to increase revenue, productivity, and customer satisfaction while reducing operational inefficiencies across the business. Cisco Unified Access includes services-rich network edge systems and combines a core network infrastructure embedded with integration of productivity-enhancing advanced technologies, including IP communications, mobility, security, video, and collaboration services.

As application workloads are redefined, data centers must change. This IDC Whitepaper looks at how network automation and orchestration can aid this transition, building simpler and more agile networks.
The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.
This paper explores the implications of cloud, big data and analytics, mobile, social business and the evolving IT security landscape on data center and enterprise networks and the changes that organizations will need to make in order to capitalize on these technology force.
The use of SaaS applications within an organization is the new normal. In fact, there's a good chance that just your marketing department alone is using over 10 SaaS products.
According to Gartner, the 2015 worldwide market for SaaS software application sales was $33.4 billion, with projections to double to $67.2 billion by 2019. Integration needs are changing, with SaaS applications, as well as mobile traffic, social networks, IoT, suppliers, partners, and customer channels all new integration points that will need to be captured in your business processes.

The use of SaaS applications within an organization is the new normal. There is
a good chance that just your marketing department is using more than 10 SaaS
products, which is reflected in the amount you are spending on SaaS. According
to Gartner, the 2015 worldwide market for SaaS software application sales was
$33.4 billion, with projections to double that to $67.2 billion by 2019.1 Clearly,
your integration needs are changing. SaaS applications, as well as mobile
traffic, social networks, IoT, suppliers, partners, and customer channels are new
integration points that will need to be captured in your business processes.
This paper presents five principles for successful hybrid integrations.
In an IT landscape dominated by big data, mobility, social networking and cloud computing, integration will not only grow in importance, its very nature will change. This paper will discusses the 21st Century IT landscape as it relates to the new integration, and argues that the need for a comprehensive integration strategy has never been more urgent.

Complete enterprise security requires coordination. Firms must integrate the technologies and data that come from the endpoint and network
layers to make accurate decisions that ensure optimal threat detection, containment, and remediation. Unfortunately, too many firms rely on a
huge variety of solutions that require manual integration and correlation, leading to wasted time and poor threat detection. Security leaders
must automate these processes to eliminate detection lag and improve prevention efforts.
For most companies, Active Directory (AD) or LDAP and play the central role in coordinating identity and access management policies. Directory integration typically serves as a "source of truth" for user identities, and it provides access control to on-premises resources such as networks, file servers, and web applications. A byproduct of the transition to cloud applications is the proliferation of separate user stores; each cloud application typically is rolled out independently and therefore has its own unique database of user credentials. Okta's cloud-based identity and access management service solves these problems with a single integration point that provides a highly available solution for all cloud and web-based application Active Directory integrations.
