The main driver of such disruption? Tech startups.

The survey respondents point out financial services, media, and retail and wholesale industries as the most heavily disrupted by tech players. Sweden sees the most disruption (at least according to 51% of execs), followed by Norway (38%) and Finland (34%).

Cisco Presents Intent-Based Networking

E-mail Print PDF

Cisco announces what it claims is one of the "most significant breakthroughs in enterprise networking"-- intent-based networking, a system able to anticipate actions, stop threats and, ultimately, "evolve and learn."

Cisco intent networkingThe principle behind intent-based networking is similar to self-driving vehicles. Whereas a traditional network requires an administrator managing of multiple tasks, an intent-based network can determine how to do a task, before automating specific tasks to make it happen.

Such a system involves a shift from hardware-centric to software-driven networking, making an intelligent, secure platform "powered by intent and informed by context." Behind the intuitive network is Digital Network Architecture (DNA), a suite of technologies and services running as a single system.
