ManageEngine Highlights at Cisco Live Milan 2014
At Cisco Live Milan, ManageEngine experts will be on hand to discuss and
demonstrate the latest enhancements to its IT management portfolio,
NetFlow Analyzer – With the addition of Cisco AVC monitoring,
NetFlow Analyzer now supports all major monitoring technologies from
Cisco including NBAR, CBQoS, IP SLA, WAAS and Medianet. AVC monitoring
lets IT teams segment, identify, monitor and manage over 1,000
applications with the help of NBAR2. In turn, AVC monitoring helps
improve QoS monitoring and application response times. NetFlow Analyzer
is IVT-tested and certified as ‘Cisco Compatible’ in various key areas.
OpManager – The new iPad app for OpManager lets admins view the
availability and performance data of Cisco devices. It lists the alarms
that are raised and lets the admin acknowledge, add notes, clear and
delete them. The app includes various troubleshooting options such as
ping, trace root and IT workflow automation. Admins can also use the app
to create custom dashboards and widgets.
DeviceExpert – With SIEM integration, DeviceExpert can now send
Syslog messages to SIEM tools upon detecting a configuration change. In
turn, the SIEM tools can analyze those events, correlate them with other
network events, and provide insights on overall network activity. The
latest release of DeviceExpert also gains session recording of Telnet
and SSH connections launched to devices from the DeviceExpert GUI.
Session recording caters to the audit and compliance requirements of
organizations that mandate proactive monitoring of activities. The
recorded sessions can also be archived and played back to support
forensic audits. DeviceExpert also offers REST APIs to enable any
third-party application or software to integrate with DeviceExpert
directly and add, access and extract data.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions.
Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition.
A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.
How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
