It’s time to kick off the Cisco Research Blog! With the first post, we would like to ask the Networking Research Community to give us some feedback about a number of things:
- The cooperative research approach we are using to engage with the Research Community
- The brand new Cisco Research website
- The RFP program
- This Blog
Please tell us what you like about those things, but - more importantly - tell us what you don’t like and what you think we are missing. Your feedback is extremely important and will help us in becoming a better Research Partner.
And yes, this is an open blog! You can make your own posts on any thing you might have in mind about Cisco and Research.

Welcome to our Cisco Analyst Relations blog! We have developed this site to interact with industry influencers and thought leaders on key industry wide trends and issues as well as Cisco-related technologies, markets and customer segments. Incorporating different media and communications tools into our AR program provides our industry analysts, customers, partners, and other interested communities the opportunity to interact and share ideas in new ways. These weekly discussions will include a range of topics and insights, and we encourage you to provide your feedback and thoughts.As part of this initial entry, we would like to introduce our first topic! While it’s only August, we have already started the countdown to Cisco C-Scape Global Forum 2007. The event, which will be held on December 11 and 12 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California, will feature all the things you’ve come to expect at this annual get-together -lively discussion, debate and dialogue on the issues of the day; access to Cisco executives, customers and partners; and the ability to drill down into specific product and technology areas.Ultimately though, this is your event, and I want to make sure we’re building an agenda that is compelling, engaging and of value to you. You’ll definitely hear a lot about collaboration, Web 2.0, software-as-a-service, and social networking as well as our core businesses. But I’d like to hear directly from you on what you’d like to see as part of the program. What topics interest you the most? What sessions are absolute must-haves for you? Beyond the agenda, are there other things we can do to make the event successful for you?Through a mix of roundtables, fireside chats, case studies, one-on-ones and technology discussions, I’m confident we can address your needs and make your time with us valuable and useful.Registration for this invitation-only forum will open up next month. In the interim, please use this blog to share your agenda ideas as well as any thoughts you might have on improving the event itself.Looking forward to seeing you this December in California!
