At Cisco Data Center, we recognize that our community of partners is a critical sales success factor. – So the annual event Partner Summit, this year in San Diego California April 16-19 is a big deal!
In fact, the physical event in San Diego is already sold out, demonstrating clearly the dynamism of the Cisco partner community, which is more and more attracted to the Cisco Business proposition, the solutions and now the services opportunities.
But to make sure that every partner can benefit from this opportunity , the summit will come this year to you live via Virtual Partner Summit (VPS). All you have to do is register. Here is my list of the must watch data center sessions -
