People often ask me what the future of room based immersive systems looks like, as more and more of us have the ability to launch a video call available, quite literally, at our fingertips – on our tablets, mobiles and laptops.
I recently spent some time with a colleague of mine, Richard Mullen, musing over the opportunities and challenges, looking specifically at three important areas for consideration… Read More »
The concept of crowd sourcing cyber intelligence may sound like an unstructured process, but there’s more to it than that. First, you need to remember that all crowds consist of collections of individuals contributing to the community knowledge base. Second, someone has to take responsibility for gathering data from the crowd, analyzing it, and refining it into actionable information that crowd members can apply to their unique situations.
One of the main reasons I’m excited about my job is that I work for an organization with unique qualifications to lead the movement to collective, crowd-sourced cyber security. Cisco has customers all over the globe that have agreed to share threat intelligence data with us for analysis and redistribution back to the community. This process evolved as a byproduct of our main line network products, solutions, and services business. It also hasn’t escaped our notice that these efforts not only deliver huge benefits to our current customers, but also carry with them a truly compelling business value proposition. I really shouldn’t say more, but do it any way in a video blog post you can access here.
It’s been a great week at Cisco Marketing Velocity in Cannes, and we hope you’ve been following all the action on the @partnervelocity and @cisco_channels Twitter handles, as well as here.
During the event, we celebrated Cisco’s Best Integrated Marketing Campaign awards, recognizing some of the most successful marketing campaigns delivered by Cisco partners all over the world. Each winner was judged by region and evaluated based on utilization of Cisco resources, creativity and innovation, business impact, and overall alignment to Cisco, including technology and architecture messaging.
Please join me in congratulating the 19 winners, pictured below with Cisco’s top channel executives.
Yesterday, Cisco opened its new regional headquarters in Singapore, one of the first in the world that was designed from the ground up on the principles of the Cisco Connected Workplace, which integrates technology seamlessly into the workplace to foster collaboration. The new office is a living, breathing example of what Cisco feels is the next generation workplace.
Earlier this year, Cisco brought together several thought leaders in the industry to discuss the next generation workplace and what it meant to them. The one common thread which they all agreed on was that the next generation workplace is becoming essential to attract and retain the best employees and that it is as much of a cultural shift as it is a technological shift.
This video captures the essence of that discussion which features Dinesh Malkani, then managing director of Cisco’s Collaboration business in Asia Pacific, Japan and Greater China; Simon Kahn, chief marketing officer, Asia Pacific, Google; Craig Gledhill, vice president, Regional Enterprise Business, Samsung Electronics; Han Kwee Juan, chief executive officer, Citibank Singapore; Garluck Lai, assistant director, Technology & Resource Management, Temasek Polytechnic; and Manoj Menon, partner and managing director, Asia Pacific, Frost and Sullivan.
