Cisco India Summit 2014 — Powering the Digital Economy
This IDC Flash discusses the latest announcements made at the Cisco India Summit 2014 held in Bangalore, India, on December 8 and 9. Cisco's strategy to develop the ecosystem and develop partners is continuing. The most recent partnership announced in the event is the tie-up with IL&FS Technology Limited (ITL) in developing smart cities. The Internet of Everything (IoE) strategy to connect people, products, processes, and data at all levels starting from discrete products to entire cities is interesting. Cisco highlights IoE as a convergence of people, processes, data, and things; and requires unprecedented performance and scale that would translate into value creation. This, as Cisco aptly puts, will force us to rethink about distributed computing as it makes an interesting case to push computation to the edge of the network and not consolidate all data generated by devices at a central location for processing.
