Cisco opens DNA to developers in campus networking push
Cisco wants to turn its DNA Center campus networking platform into a platform for software development. The goal is to work with the data the system collects. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Cisco has opened up its DNA Center to developers and partners, encouraging them to build software that works with the data collected in the campus networking software console for WAN management and orchestration. Cisco announced Tuesday at the Cisco Live conference its plans for turning Digital Network Architecture Center into a platform for software development. To do that, Cisco said it would roll out in the summer APIs and a software development kit (SDK) for building applications that can integrate the network into business processes. Cisco is aiming the tools at customers that want to integrate DNA Center campus networking analytics into line-of-business applications. Partners are also a target and Cisco announced that 15 of them had already built software on top of DNA Center. ServiceNow, which provides cloud-based service management software, is one Cisco partner in the process of integrating its products with DNA Center, said Scott Harrell, the general manager of Cisco's enterprise networking business, in an interview with TechTarget. Cisco and consulting firm Accenture are helping with the integration work. The idea is to forward network problems detected in DNA Center's analytics engine to the ServiceNow console, along with suggestions for remediation, Harrell said. If a campus networking engineer accepted one of the fixes, then he could instruct DNA Center to apply it without leaving the ServiceNow console.
