Networking giant Cisco has revealed the Cisco Connected Analytics for the Internet of Everything portfolio, a comprehensive data and analytics strategy and solutions portfolio.

Customers will be able to extract structured, valuable data from the rapidly expanding ecosystem of connected people, processes, data and things that together forms the Internet of Everything (IoE).

“There is a massive shift in the market where the remote device at the edge is quickly becoming an incredibly strategic tool to share and collect data, enable more informed decision making, and deliver the best customer experience possible. But, if customers don’t have the right analytics solutions in place to make sense of it, that data is useless,” explains Edzard Overbeek, Senior Vice President, Cisco Services.

“Now with Cisco’s portfolio and broad partner ecosystem, we have the right footprint to drive analytics innovation and help customers turn data into actionable insights that can transform business outcomes,” he added.

Unlike the recent past where useful insights from data was mostly created within an organization and stored in a centralized data silo. However, now with the massive, unstructured data generated by IoE, decision makers are struggling to harness this data, as suggests a Cisco study.

With the aim to provide enterprises access to near real-time information, predictions and trends that can have an immediate impact on their business, the portfolio includes:

  • Connected Analytics for Events
  • Connected Analytics for Retail
  • Connected Analytics for IT
  • Connected Analytics for Network Deployment
  • Connected Analytics for Mobility
  • Connected Analytics for Collaboration
  • Connected Analytics for Contact Center

Built on Cisco’ IOx platform, the portfolio includes easy-to-deploy software packages that bring analytics to data regardless of its location and is now globally available. Consistent with Cisco’s ongoing commitment to partners, the portfolio will be enabled through a specific program to help them expand their practice.
