Cisco GMCC Team – My Gratitude

I would like to personally thank the entire Global Marketing and Corporate Communications team at Cisco for the amazing work they do!

Because of their tenacity, creativity and dedication to elevating Cisco’s brand throughout 2013, I accepted the Marketer of the Year award for Brand Building on behalf of our team at last week’s Marketers that Matter awards ceremony in San Francisco.

This talented team continues to inspire me, but also our employees, our customers and our partners on a global scale. They have set the bar high for building a brand in an age of the empowered and connected customer, truly bringing the Internet of Everything to life.

Congratulations all around and my GRATITUDE! I am so fortunate to work with such a talented team.

Hamburg’s Quest to Become the First Smart Seatropolis

Hamburg will swiftly emerge as the world’s first Smart Seatropolis.

With an advanced, end-to-end network that connects real-time information between urban services and adjacent port operations, historic Hamburg is leapfrogging into the 21st century.

Two weeks ago, I signed an agreement with Hamburg’s city officials to co-develop a framework upon which Internet of Everything wim blogservices can deliver container loads of new value to both citizens and businesses, especially the Hamburg Port Authority.

The Memorandum of Understanding focuses on how to collaboratively define, develop and deploy inter-linked solutions and services throughout the greater metro-port area – the Seatropolis!

At the 28-square-mile port – the third busiest in Europe – sensor-enabled Smart Parking for large cargo trucks will speed the flow of traffic for both transporters and commuters, as well as reduce pollution from idling engines. With throughput of 139 million tons at the port last year, Smart Parking for trucks – a world first — has the dual benefit of improving supply chain efficiency and the quality of life for Hamburg citizens living, working and visiting just across the mighty River Elbe.
