The following is a guest blog post by Christian Gunther, Consulting Solutions Architect, World Wide Technology.
World Wide Technology (WWT) is a global systems integrator headquartered in St. Louis, MO. WWT’s CEO and Co-Founder had the idea that thought leadership and technology integration could be planned, created, built, and tested in a lab environment. This idea launched WWT’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC). The ATC is where all the magic happens. Technology integrations, testing and evaluation, proof of concepts, demonstrations, and labs. All are possible because of the ATC and our CEO’s forward thinking.
WWT and Cisco have been partners from the very beginning, growing the relationship into #1 partner status for WWT. Cisco has benefited from the ATC and the ability to bring together customers, partners, and WWT resources to innovate and bring ideas to outcomes. This partnership is the foundation for other OEM relationships, with Splunk being a primary example.
The WWT/Splunk partnership has grown significantly over the last few years. The ATC has Splunk as a significant presence for security as well as data center, networking, storage, and big data. WWT has demonstrated the relationship between Cisco and Splunk through Cisco Validated Design for running Splunk on UCS. In addition, security integrations featuring data from firewalls, IPS, ISE, and Lancope (to name a few) being incorporated into Splunk for correlation, detection, and dashboard capabilities.
These examples are just the beginning to illustrate the innovative work between WWT, Splunk, Cisco, and many other partners to provide thought leadership to our mutual customers. So, come and take a tour of our WWT ATC and be amazed at the massive amounts of investment put forth in support of our mission to be the best technology integrator in the world.
