Give users what they need to do business — when, where, and how they need it.
The economic and agility benefits of cloud are propelling significant change in the delivery and consumption of IT services, applications, and content. As consumers of cloud-hosted services from Cisco and our partners, organizations can take advantage of flexible deployment models to gain access to end-to-end, enterprise-class applications.
Why Cloud for Service Delivery?
There's a lot of talk about how "the cloud" is changing everything. In some ways it is — clouds provide a new level of flexibility in application and data delivery. Provisioning applications and services from a cloud gives you the operational benefits without the capital expenses of maintaining on-premises environments.
IT is focusing more on service delivery as content and services are increasingly being delivered on-demand and on the move. Enterprises can achieve significant benefits, including the ability to:
Deliver consistency of service across devices
Ensure access to always-current versions of applications
Support a self-serve model of procurement
Enable rapid deployment at scale
Shift IT spending from capital to operating expenses
Focus on "core" vs. "context" as appropriate
Why Cisco for Cloud Services?
Cisco is focused on enabling a compelling user experience with every service delivered from the cloud. These services can be provided anywhere, on any device, at any time with the security, performance, and reliability previously possible only with traditional on-premises deployments. Specific benefits include the following.
Interoperability: Protect your existing IT investments. If, like many companies, you rely on Microsoft desktop productivity applications, the Cisco WebEx cloud can provide user-availability information (presence) directly within Microsoft Office applications.
Integration: Integrate new features from Cisco WebEx cloud into your existing business applications. It's not about ripping and replacing everything, but taking advantage of enhancements that improve business processes.
Maintenance: Cloud applications do not require updates to on-premises equipment, help you minimize time and effort spent deploying new and upgraded apps, and reduce risks of technology obsolescence.
