The plan cuts the company’s pre-filing debt and is part of negotiations with creditors. Day-to-day operations should not be affected.

On Good Friday 2017, the Easter Bunny dropped off Avaya’s Chapter 11 plan for reorganization at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of N.Y.

New survey data shows the clock is ticking for businesses to shift to a digital organization. Cisco Services wants to help them get there.

About a year ago, Cisco embarked on a new branding campaign, telling its customers there’s “Never Been A Better Time” to become a digital organization and create new experiences for employees and customers. However, the path to becoming digital may not be that obvious, as we are connecting more things to our network, costs are escalating, the skills gap is widening, and IT is becoming more dynamic and distributed.

Cisco’s Red Dot award roll underscores the company’s attention to detail and validates their approach to providing a delightfully simple user experience.

Following on its Best of Enterprise Connect 2017 win for the Spark Board 55, Cisco has earned recognition from Red Dot, receiving the “Best of the Best” award for the product’s “extraordinary, innovative design.”

While this year’s winners include many well-known consumer brands such as Bose, Apple, Sony, and GoPro, Cisco’s wins stand out to me as particularly interesting, indicative of the tremendous success the company’s Collaboration business unit has had in recent years. In total, Cisco received five Red Dot awards (the four other awards being one tier down from the Best of the Best), for its recently announced Room Kit (see, “Cisco Beefs Up Spark Ecosystem“) and other Cisco Spark products.

For those who haven’t seen it, there’s a lot to love about the newest phone from Samsung. Whether it’s the new Infinity Display that seems to go on forever, the DEX docking station that turns your phone into a desktop computer, the incredible Virtual Reality experience, or the rapid wireless charging that replenishes your phone’s battery in minutes, it’s easy to see why the Samsung Galaxy S8 and 8+ will be two of the hottest devices this year.

I’ve admittedly had occasional dalliances with Samsung, yet I always come back to the Apple iPhone. While the rumors associated with the iPhone 8 sound incredible, It’s hard to argue with the growing belief that Samsung, with the Galaxy S8, has finally leapfrogged Apple— offering the best mobile phone on the market. In fact, after evaluating the Samsung Galaxy S8, Zach Epstein from BGR wrote that while he’s waiting for the iPhone 8 to be released, “Using my iPhone for the next 6 months is really going to suck.” (Click here for the full article).

Why do people stay with the iPhone instead of upgrading to a superior phone?

The Mist Asset Visibility Service lets you quickly and cost- effectively locate mobile assets using BLE technology without having to manually deploy and mange physical beacons

For decades, the enterprise Wi-Fi network served one purpose: to connect users devices to the company network. However, the rise of digital transformation has caused many organizations to leverage Wi-Fi to create new experiences.

It’s my belief that we will look back at 2017 as a tipping point for the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT has certainly been something that most business and IT leaders talk about, but to date, deployments have been limited to key verticals that have been connecting things for years, although we called it machine-to-machine (M2M) before it became cool to say IoT.

Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN enables customers to achieve the vision of the thin branch and internet breakout without the complexity that made it untenable before

It seems that with technology, when we deploy something new, our first instincts are to make it look like the old thing. Then, at a later date, smart people figure out how the new thing can actually do something different.
