When? Thursday, August 8, 2013 @ 1:00 -- 2:00 p.m. (EDT)
Where? Twitter Chat
The explosive growth in mobility is transforming the ways in which we live, learn, play and, in particular, work. Every dimension of our business lives stands to change: whom we work with and when, where, how, and why we work — all will be impacted.
The ultimate goal of business mobility is to drive increased productivity, heightened customer experience, and harmonious work-life balance. Business mobility offers freedom for knowledge workers beleaguered by accelerating demands on their time and talents; with it, they can take control of their success at work while protecting their personal lives. And, increasingly, it is the knowledge workers themselves who are driving these sweeping changes in the workplace.
But how can service providers and enterprises embrace the disruption?
Join us this Thursday, August 8th at 10am PST/1pm EST for a TweetChat on how next-generation knowledge workers are accelerating the disruption in business mobility. Follow #CiscoYourWay to join in on the discussion. I’ll be tweeting from my own handle @Spain_Chris. Read More »

It’s a nightmare out there. School districts’ wireless networks now have to support teachers, students, and staff – all touting desktops, tablets, smartphones, and/or laptops. For some in IT, knowing who is accessing what using what on the network (a confusing statement itself) could very well be cosmic chaos; for others, it is simply a black hole of the unknown.
For those IT professionals in the know…life becomes much simpler with Cisco Prime Infrastructure, part of the Cisco BYOD Solutions for K12 Education. Cisco Prime simplifies network management and improves operational efficiency with converged wired and wireless management.

Many of us are turning to social media to not only give us news on our friends, but news of the day.
The birth of a royal baby to Kate and William took Twitter and Facebook by storm… and the British monarchy right into the Internet age. Companies can do the same by tapping into what people are already excited about.
In my latest blog, I talk about how to make your own content timely and interesting. Read the full post here

Social media is quickly becoming ubiquitous in our lives — not only giving us news on our friends, but news of the day. We found out all about the recent birth of the newest heir to the British throne on social.
The royal baby is merely two weeks old and already doing a lot to bring the British Monarchy into the Internet age: “The Twitter of tiny feet as William and Kate announce arrival online in historic first.”
We’re also using social media to connect with current and potential customers. It’s no longer a question of should companies use it… but how. How does a business reach who it wants to reach, stay relevant, listen to what they’re saying, and help them influence others? Read More »

Gen Y has been a new breed of worker that transformed the business world from the moment they stepped through the door (in Converse and jeans, to boot). They are idealistic and digitally savvy; they value meaningful work and social media freedom; they’re hungry for interaction and thirsty for acknowledgment.
Fast forward to 2013 … Gen Yers are rising through the ranks and entering into management roles. They are poised to transform the business world yet again, but this time they’ll be making changes from the top and leading the workplace with collaboration and mobile technologies that have already proven integral to their daily lives.
As a collaboration connoisseur myself, I was excited to check out the results of a survey Cisco released today about one of the primary tech tools young executives will use to lead their organizations – business-class video. Some of the notable findings from The “2013 Cisco Global Young Executives’ Video Attitudes”survey are:
- Three out of five management-track Gen Y leaders will rely more heavily on business-class video during the next five-10 years.
- 87 percent of respondents stated that a company’s video investment would significantly impact their decision when considering job offers.
- 94 percent of those organizations with less than 400 employees value video as a way to break down language barriers in the increasingly global marketplace
This doesn’t surprise me at all Read More »
