Intelligent CIO Middle East Issue 23 - Page 104

FEATURE: GITEX GITEX 2017 SPECIAL I Cherif Sleiman, vice president, EMEA at Infoblox, says: “Network landscapes are rapidly evolving, driven by trends in security, virtualisation, cloud, IPv6 adoption, and the Internet of Things. Conventional network management solutions are manual, fragmented, and vulnerable to attack. They are no longer able to keep pace with the exponential growth of devices, IP traffic, and sophisticated security threats. “For 17 years, we’ve been the market leader for core network services, including DNS, DHCP, and IP address management, a category known as DDI. We’ve taken our extensive experience in DDI technology to create an industry first Actionable Network Intelligence Platform. It goes beyond DDI to enable organisations to harness insights derived from data moving through the network to enhance all aspects of network management, security, agility, and cost control.” nflobox will demonstrate its ‘revolutionary’ Actionable Network Intelligence Platform, a unified platform that empowers enterprises to elevate every aspect of network availability, agility, security, and performance; on premises, across data centres, and in the cloud, at GITEX. K odak Alaris is expanding its information capture ecosystem, delivering on the promise of digital transformation for organisations in the Middle East. At GITEX, the global solution provider will expand the previously announced Alaris IN2 Ecosystem by unveiling the Alaris S2000 Series Scanners – a new family of network/wireless and USB connected desktop devices – Cherif Sleiman, vice president, EMEA at Infoblox and showcase its award-winning software and services, which are designed to take the complexity out of information capture and improve the way people work. In a recently published White Paper, IDC reports that digitising, automating, and optimising document workflows offers compelling benefits to organisations, including, on average, a 35% reduction in costs, 42% reduction in paper documents, and Domain Name System (DNS) security will be a big focus for Infoblox at GITEX. DNS is a foundational Internet technology used in every non-trivial IP-based transaction. If it’s not working properly, Internet transactions can grind to a halt leading to disastrous results including lost revenue due to downtime, diminished customer satisfaction, and lost productivity. n 52% reduction in errors. “Manual processes present an unnecessary hurdle to creating transparency and efficiency for organisations,” said Siddhartha Bhattacharya, Vice President, Global Marketing, Alaris Information Management. “Any paper-based process such as loan requests or driver’s licence applications must be digitised to facilitate sharing and reduce risk. Digital capture of paper documents is an essential first step toward achieving this.” The Alaris IN2 Ecosystem will be the focus of the booth at GITEX. Alaris launched its ecosystem earlier this year to help remove complexity from information capture. Now, the next wave of the IN2 Ecosystem offers new features and tight integration between scanners, software and services.
