...9-605-015 REV: AUGUST 20, 2007 ANDREW MCAFEE F. WARREN MCFARLAN ALISON BERKLEY WAGONFELD Enterprise IT at Cisco (2004) On a Monday morning in March of 2004 Brad Boston, CIO of Cisco Systems, was preparing for a meeting with the six other members of Cisco’s Business Process Operating Committee (BPOC). This group of senior executives met twice each month to review and prioritize key initiatives that impacted the entire company. Since its first meeting in 2002, BPOC had focused its attention on several major enterprise-wide projects such as upgrading the company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and developing a comprehensive customer database. As these projects started to wind down, the committee began considering new proposals that typically fell into one of three categories: “one-off” programs with specific short-term goals, “must-have” programs mandated for regulatory purposes (such as Sarbanes-Oxley compliance), and bigger enterprise initiatives that had to be prioritized relative to other projects with high resource requirements. Although BPOC did not fund the projects it approved, the committee’s recommendations deeply affected Cisco’s overall commitment to various IT initiatives. As Boston thought about the projects that were going to be covered at the next BPOC meeting, he knew that one request had the potential to generate a great deal of discussion. Cisco’s customer advocacy group was proposing an overhaul of Cisco’s call center processes—the group......

Cisco Systems Inc. Analysis

...INTRODUCTION Cisco Systems was started by a team of husband and wife, Leonaid Bosack and Sandy J. Lerner in 1984. They developed the first specialized microcomputer that enable two or more networks communicate with each other by deciphering, translating and funnelling data between them. This microcomputer also called as “multi-protocol” router has opened up and boosted the functionality of the Internet world. Over the years, Cisco managed to become the spearhead in the data networking equipment market which saw the company provided and manufactured large-scale router that powered the Internet. As Cisco Systems grow and expand over the years, so did the company’s product portfolio. With routers and switches being the core products of the company, other products and services such as hubs, access products (connection for remote access), web scaling products and technologies, security products, InterWorks for SNA, IOS software and network management has slowly become a part of Cisco Systems product portfolio. This expansion of portfolio was made possible through the several acquisitions and partnerships. By 1998, Cisco managed to hold either number one or number two position in 14 of the 15 markets in which it competed. This has made Cisco the top choice among large companies to buy company’s line of products and services. This situation may also reflect from the strong financial growth of Cisco. From 1994 until 1998 Cisco’s total assets sky-rocketed from $1.1 billion to $8.9......

...COMPANY CASE Cisco Systems: Solving Business Problems Through Collaboration 1. Discuss the nature of the market structure and the demand for Cisco’s products. The nature of the market structure and demand of Cisco Systems is its business market which contains fewer but larger companies. For Cisco Systems, this implies that even though they have fewer clients than other companies, they still have a good and profitable relationship with their clients. For the customers of Cisco Systems, this implies that they will receive better and faster service and products because they don’t have to compete for the attention and service of Cisco Systems. The business market is derived from final consumer demand which means Cisco Systems must know what the market demands from their business customers. For Cisco Systems, this implies that Cisco must depend on the final consumer market, in order for their customers to buy their supplies. This also means that Cisco Systems must also promote the products of their partner businesses in order to get the final customers attention and loyalty to their partners in order for them to get gain. For the customers of Cisco Systems, this implies that they would have to depend on their customers choices if they are willing to buy their product or not. The demand of the final customers would be the basis of the customers of Cisco Systems if they would ask for more supply from Cisco Systems or not. The business market’s demand is more inelastic,......

...Cisco for Small Business – An Example Network Case Study This article is part 2 of a 2 part series: Part 1 is at Why Is Cisco Equipment a Smart Investment for Small Businesses? Moving from the broad over view covered in Part 1 lets now move into demonstrating some of the direct benefits of the more commonly implemented features of Cisco router and switches by using a simple, small office scenario as a case study. Typical of a small organization is there are departments for financial matters, marketing and sales and one or more managers. The personnel in each of these areas has specific computer functions and data needs with some being in common such as Internet access and others being necessarily limited to certain workers such as access to financial data. Let’s assume we’re a consulting firm that’s been hired to design this network and as the the first step we have met with the key managers to develop a list of criteria for each department in regards to computer resources, security and performance. In our meeting we agreed to the following goals. Network Design Goals and Numbers Overall: A reasonable level of network security. This particular business isn’t subject to any set of specific regulations such as HIPAA but management well understands that good security practices are both a sound investment in protecting the company’s IT assets, the company image and as a deterrent against legal proceedings. It was agreed that the following basic security procedures are to...

...Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) Reference Architecture October 5, 2010 What You Will Learn Enterprise IT departments are pressured to control costs, improve manageability, enhance security, and speed-up the deployment of new capabilities while supporting a consistent user experience across diverse endpoints. Desktop virtualization (DV) has become a popular solution for addressing these needs. With hosted DV, the end-user’s desktop experience (operating system, applications, and associated data) is abstracted from the physical endpoint and centralized. The user’s desktop image is hosted as a virtual machine on a data center server. Users can access hosted virtual desktops from anywhere through DV appliances, smart phones, tablet computers, laptop and desktop computers, and other clients. Organizations deploying DV face many challenges, as the DV technologies potentially affect the entire IT infrastructure. To address these challenges, Cisco has developed Cisco® Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI), a comprehensive architecture for desktop virtualization. Cisco VXI, which uses three existing Cisco architectures, includes designs for virtualized data centers, virtualization-aware borderless networks, and virtualized workspaces, and the critical services needed to support these architectures. Cisco VXI reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO), streamlines operations, simplifies management, and positions organizations for growth. This document......

...member of the 2004-2005 SDCFP, it was an honor and pleasure to be assigned at Cisco Systems in San Jose, CA. Without exception, the men and women at Cisco provided me every opportunity to broaden my perspective on business practices, leadership, and management. Treating me in every respect as a valued Cisco employee has afforded me the chance to observe the company from the perspective of an “insider” and experience what it is like to serve in a world-class corporate organization such as Cisco Systems. The fellowship would not have been nearly as rewarding without the tremendous support of a host of people. First, my direct sponsors at Cisco—John Davis and Scott McMahan—orchestrated every phase of the fellowship and spent innumerable hours willingly bringing me up-to-speed regarding the company’s culture, business practices, etc. Additionally, Lance Perry, Vice President, IT Infrastructure, went out of his way to provide open access to his organization and the daily dealings with his Directors, which was key to gaining a true “insider” perspective. These three professionals represent some of the best Cisco has to offer. While there were many people that were instrumental in making this year a success, a handful routinely went out of their way to ensure my time at Cisco was productive. Michele Martino and Carolyn Johnson kept me “out of trouble” by providing sage counsel with regard to the Cisco way of doing business in the admin arena. All of the IT......

...MAY 6, 2002 ROBERT D. AUSTIN RICHARD L. NOLAN MARK J. COTTELEER Cisco Systems, Inc.: Implementing ERP History of Cisco op yo Pete Solvik, Cisco Systems chief information officer (CIO), considered the last remaining line item of his ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) implementation budget. Cisco had a history of rewarding performance with cash bonuses, but the amount allocated for rewarding the ERP team, over $200,000, was unprecedented. To be sure, they had delivered a lot in a time frame that no one had believed possible. It had not been easy either. The team members, Solvik included, had taken a risk in joining the project. Rewards should, and would, be generous. The size of the bonus pool, though, made Solvik think: they had done well, but how well? What had gone right? What had gone wrong? Given another project of this magnitude and risk, would they be able to do it again? No tC Cisco Systems, Inc. was founded by two Stanford computer scientists in 1984 and became publicly traded in 1990. The company’s primary product is the “router,” the combination of hardware and software that acts as a traffic cop on the complex TCP/IP1 networks that make up the Internet (as well as corporate “Intranets”). With the rise of Internet technologies, demand for Cisco’s products boomed and the company soon began to dominate its markets. By 1997, its first year on the Fortune 500, Cisco ranked among the top five companies in return on revenues and......

...COMPANY Case Cisco Systems: Solving Business Problems Through Collaboration Perhaps you’ve heard of Cisco Systems. It’s the company that runs those catchy “Human Network” ads. It also produces those familiar Linksys wireless Internet routers and owns Pure Digital Technologies, the company that makes the trendy Flip video cameras. But most of what Cisco sells is not for regular consumers like you and me. Cisco is a tried and true B-to-B company. In fact, it earned honors as BtoB magazine’s 2009 “marketer of the year.” Three-quarters of Cisco’s sales are in routers, switches, and advanced network technologies—the things that keep data moving around cyberspace 24/7. But over the past decade, in addition to all that hardware, Cisco has pioneered the next generation of Internet networking tools, from cybersecurity to set-top boxes to videoconferencing. But this story is about much more than just a tech giant that makes equipment and software that companies need to run their Internet and intranet activities. It’s about a forward-thinking firm that has transitioned from a manufacturer to a leadership consultancy. To make that happen, Cisco has perfected one major concept that seems to drive both its own business and its interactions with customer organizations—collaboration. Cisco is all about collaborating with its clients in order to help those clients better collaborate employees, suppliers, partners, and customers.

...Cisco Systems, Inc.: Implementing ERP [HBR case #699022] Reviews Cisco System's approach to implementing Oracle's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software product. This case chronologically reviews the diverse, critical success factors and obstacles facing Cisco during its implementation. Cisco faced the need for information systems replacement based on its significant growth potential and its reliance on failing legacy systems. The discussion focuses on where management was particularly savvy in contrast to where it was the beneficiary of good fortune. Cisco was highly successful with its enterprise resource planning (ERP) effort. What accounts for this success? What were the most important things that Cisco did correctly? Cisco’s success is greatly attributed by its 100% dedication of their teams to complete this project. It started with the senior management team approval and support. This includes its core ERP team of 20 which expanded to 100 after the board approval. Also included is the Executive Steering committee which also worked countless hours to meet this deadline. Even the hardware vendor who was an executive sponsor probably had 30 people on site at one point. This big financially but it was a great reference for them. The core ERP team represented a cross section of Cisco’s business community who were experts in its field . They were very structured and organized dividing the large 100 team into 5 process area teams or ‘tracks’. Each track had a......
