Many businesses today are feeling pressured to transform to New IP cloud-based infrastructure and digital operations in order to compete with the web-scale giants. As part of this transformation they are moving applications to the cloud and doing software development in near real-time. These changes are not only transforming business technologically, but also economically as firms move closer to a service-based orientation.
While the business benefits of this transformation include cost savings, productivity increases, revenue growth and better customer experience management, it's important to step back and look at the impact of this transformation on the overall cloud ecosystem, and how New IP technologies, such as virtualization, software-defined data centers, cloud computing and containers and the Internet of Things (IoT), are becoming critical to transforming business, stimulating economic development and helping to drive the global economy.
To discuss the impact and the benefits of New IP technologies on the enterprise, The New IP editors will talk with Dr. Robert B. Cohen, senior fellow, Economic Strategy Institute; Dr. Zheng Yang, lead enterprise architect, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceutical Inc.; and Sridhar Mahankali, Staff Network Architect, Intel Technology Group, tomorrow (March 8) at noon ET for our newest webinar: "New IP Technologies & the Enterprise Impact."
On the webinar Cohen will examine the transformation under way, citing case studies from companies such as Netflix, Boeing, Ford, Amazon and more, while Zheng and Mahankali will be on hand to offer their own case study examples and experiences at Boehringer Ingelheim and Intel respectively.
"Enterprises are moving to digital industrialization in two ways: adopting DevOps and continuous service delivery to accelerate the design, testing and deployment of software and services; and using big data lakes and IoT for data analytics to optimize business performance," says Cohen, providing a sneak peek into his webinar presentation.
More specifically, Cohen notes that Netflix's analysis and coordination of video streaming requires extreme flexibility in managing infrastructure. "It can design, test and deploy software rapidly. It employs a New IP-like infrastructure," he says. "Big banks, such as Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Citibank, plus Bloomberg and FedEx do the same."
Citing another example, Cohen notes that "Boeing's 'pulse line' manufacturing is managed by sensors and robotics on the factory floor, moving resources around as they are needed. This requires New IP-like infrastructure to optimize work processes."
