Cisco Live US 2023: Top Takeaways in Network Management
This IDC Market Note highlights the top takeaways in network management at Cisco Live US 2023. Overall, Cisco Live US had a strong focus on serving the attendees. Product announcements, coming advancement, and even the "AI everywhere" emphasis took direct aim at making the IT staff more efficient and effective in serving IT management directives, end-user demands, and the digital business model. Operational usability, integrated systems, and management automation — all and more were front and center at this year's event. That's good news for an industry that has long since looked to Cisco for leadership. Whether it's IT executives, line-of-business leaders, technical and channel partners, or even competitors, Cisco serves as a bellwether when it comes to digital infrastructure — especially in the networking and security domains. Cisco's emphasis on bringing assembled components together should bolster not only the resiliency and responsiveness of the digital infrastructure but also the productivity and impact of technical staff across multiple domains.
