Cisco Announces New Innovative Solutions Offering AI, Security, and Observability

To offer partners the simplest and most scalable solutions to help customers get their infrastructure AI-ready, Cisco is collaborating with leading ecosystem partners—including NVIDIA, Intel, AMD, NetApp, Nutanix, Pure Storage and Red Hat—on Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) for AI use cases. This announcement was made at Cisco Partner Summit 2023.

These solutions build on the success of proven capabilities and existing IT processes, helping to accelerate customers’ journey to AI without adding unnecessary risk or new silos of operations, according to the company.

Cisco development partners are seeing significant business value in the Cisco Observability Platform and are actively building modules around five critical themes: business insights, SAP, networking, MLOps, and sustainability.

According to the company, this new vendor-agnostic observability ecosystem helps customers fulfill their specific observability needs, facilitating an environment where they can get value from observable telemetry.

Additionally, Cisco is introducing new Security Suites to provide a more integrated, predictable, and economical way to buy and consume Cisco’s robust portfolio of security products.

Centered around three critical use cases—user, cloud, and breach protection—the suites will improve security efficacy, enhance the user experience, and boost return on investment. They are designed to work across multiple clouds, private infrastructure, and built to be interoperable with other tools and systems.
