Cisco announced its new Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), new professional services, and an open ecosystem of partners to help customers unleash their applications and enable greater business agility.

With ACI, Cisco is delivering to customers the first data center and cloud solution to offer full visibility and integrated management of both physical and virtual networked IT resources, all built around the needs of applications.

During the unveiling of ACI, and in a blog post, Cisco chairman and CEO John Chambers discussed the imperative for IT to adapt quickly to the needs of the application economy. Applications have become the lifeblood of business.

The consistent and high performance of applications is vital to CIOs' ability to deliver new products and services, manage compliance and governance, mitigate risk and security threats, empower employees, and drive productivity into their organizations.

As billions of new valuable connections form to create an Internet of Everything that most of us will experience through applications, the focus on rapid and consistent application deployment becomes even greater. The role of the network, as the unifying technology connecting users, applications and data centers, becomes critical.
