NEC Showcases IT and Communications Solutions for Smart Enterprise at Enterprise Connect

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider of enterprise IT and communications solutions, today announced with NEC Corporation in Japan that it will showcase a broad suite of top-to-bottom IT and Communications solutions that encompass its IT empowered framework at Enterprise Connect, March 17-20 in Orlando, FL. NEC is leading the wave with its solutions for the smart enterprise that enable advanced, resilient and programmable infrastructure that can be executed at a global enterprise scale.

NEC invites attendees to the Enterprise Connect 2014 show in Orlando to booth #919 to see the key components of NEC’s empowered IT framework and observe powerful demonstrations of a smart enterprise user experience.

Communications is an essential ingredient of the formula, but NEC has taken steps well beyond just communications to change the IT value chain with smart enterprise solutions that empower organizations and create a more responsive and agile business environment.

“Smart enterprises are recognizing a convergence of information and communications technologies, now known as ICT,” said Shinya Anraku, senior vice president, NEC Corporation of America. “NEC is empowering the ICT wave with converged technologies to optimize business practices, drive workforce engagement, and create a competitive edge.”

NEC’s smart enterprise approach aligns with leading research firm Gartner, whose recent key trends for 2014 support a practice of the so-called “Nexus of Forces,” including: social, mobile, cloud, and information that continue to drive change and are the catalyst driving demand for smarter enterprise infrastructure.

NEC’s framework combines its powerful software-defined networking (SDN) suite, fault tolerant servers, storage, and virtualization software tools with its enterprise-class software applications for unified communications, web collaboration, customer care, virtualized desktops, and industry-specific applications that can operate as virtualized software within the framework. NEC’s enterprise-class applications are designed with service orientation in mind, allowing the applications to communicate with one another and enable other business applications to consume these services to create even greater enterprise workflow integration.

Key Value Pillars for Smart Enterprises

Agility, cloud, collaboration, and service assurance are becoming essential ingredients for the smart, secure, and always-on enterprise. NEC employs these drivers for an evolving technology foundation that not only enables new approaches for how IT services are delivered and managed, but also presents new ways for businesses to grow and evolve IT delivery. NEC defines key values for smart enterprises under four pillars:

  • Business Agility – empowering mobile workforces and creating a more adaptive IT environment that is more responsive to business needs.
  • Cloud Delivery – delivering flexible deployment models that enable swift business growth and increased efficiencies.
  • Collaborative Communities – providing powerful tools enabling a rich user experience for collaboration across organizations.
  • Assured Services – delivering highly available, secure, and scalable infrastructure designed for business continuity.

Elements of the Smart Enterprise Portfolio

NEC’s key IT technologies that Empower the Smart Enterprise include the industry-leading ProgrammableFlow® SDN networking suite; powerful Express5800/300 series fault-tolerant servers; ExpressCluster and SigmaSystemCenter software for virtualization management and applications high availability; M-Series secure and resilient SAN storage and HYDRAstor grid storage; Virtual PC Center technologies for thin-client delivery; and UNIVERGE™ unified communications, collaboration, and customer care software systems.

Accreditation and Standards

To ensure enterprises can operate using well known and proven industry standards NEC continues to build and support products that are well aligned with key industry standard approaches. The UNIVERGE 3C™ software-based unified communications and collaboration solution has received accreditation for the most stringent defense certifications. NEC’s Express5800 series fault tolerant servers have delivered superior resiliency within government JITC testing labs. In the area of SDN, NEC has been instrumental in the initiatives to empower OpenFlow as a standard to build multi-vendor software defined network topologies. As a fundamental strategy, NEC has utilized standard service-oriented architecture philosophies in its software designs and well known enterprise-network-friendly protocol suites to ensure alignment with IT best practices.

CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
