Integration of experience, empowerment of wisdom
Two sub-venues were set up in the afternoon of the summit, including the banking and insurance sub-venue and the securities and futures sub-venue. In the banking and insurance sub-venue, Cisco took “Converged Experience, Smart Empowerment” as the theme, and demonstrated Cisco’s innovative technology to empower financial companies to achieve smart operation and maintenance and best practices in response to multi-cloud challenges.
In the keynote speech “Building a New Generation of Intelligent Financial Multi-cloud Convergence Experience”, Cisco focused on leading technologies in the five dimensions of collaboration, data, security, interconnection, and operations, and further interpreted the valuable value that advanced technology brings to the digital transformation of financial enterprises.
In terms of collaboration, with the widespread use of cloud services, financial companies have put forward higher requirements for the collaboration capabilities and service response speed of IT teams. With the support of Webex, Cisco has led a new hybrid teamwork and communication work model, which supports development and operation teams to be able to output high-efficiency productivity more safely and reliably regardless of time and geographical constraints, and to promote high-quality Cloud service delivery.
In terms of data insight, multi-cloud services are centered on business experience, and a good experience relies on the comprehensive insight capabilities of the full stack. Cisco relies on powerful data center switch chip technology to provide full-time packet-by-packet scene recording and reproduction of data and storage networks. It relies on the globally deployed ThousandEyes system to obtain the real-time experience and transmission status of every multi-cloud user, and Linked with AppDynamics application performance analysis system to analyze big data from businesses, applications, and infrastructure through artificial intelligence to form full-stack insights and optimization suggestions.
In terms of multi-cloud security, the fragmentation and complexity of multi-cloud bring challenges to financial security. Cisco recommends that financial companies use Secure Workload (formerly known as Tetration) to ensure zero-trust monitoring and isolation of cloud load neutrality, and use AppDynamics security agents to obtain in-depth application security protection of cloud business structure perception.
In terms of multi-cloud interconnection, Cisco’s Luxtera, Acacia and other optical communications subsidiaries have advanced optical communications technologies such as silicon optical and digital coherence, and support cloud infrastructure to continuously break the upper limit of capacity and distance. The neutral multi-cloud middleware of Cisco’s local service team in China The system helps financial users overcome the challenges of strategy fragmentation and deployment complexity of heterogeneous multi-cloud integration.
Finally, in terms of multi-cloud operations, Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer and AppDynamics combine to achieve full-stack insights, and use Intersight Cloud Orchestrator to transform the insights into multi-cloud resource scheduling plans, and then use the in-depth linkage between Cisco Intersight and HashiCorp Terraform to promote the development of multi-cloud resource scheduling plans. Intelligent automation implementation and verification.
Through the technological promotion of these five dimensions, it will ultimately help Chinese financial companies make better use of multi-cloud to realize financial digital transformation and fulfill higher business goals and values.

With the accelerated construction of 5G+ mobile Internet, financial companies have invested heavily in the diversification of products and services, striving to quickly acquire users and seize the market. In this context, the types of applications are becoming more and more complex, the business chain is getting longer and longer, and the traditional silo-style development route from planning, construction to operation and maintenance is gradually showing shortcomings, that is, a small failure frequently affects the entire business chain. Experience, and can spread to thousands of end users, causing irreparable losses. As a global technology leader that has focused on making the Internet since 1984, Cisco combines its in-depth understanding and precipitation of the financial industry for more than 30 years to provide financial customers with a higher and more comprehensive perspective, aiming to form a unified A complete set of intelligent operation and maintenance ideological framework and methodology.
