Tonight I invited for a Daily Blogger Techminute in London 3 great bloggers : Cisco Lisa Caywood, NetApp Tim Waldron, and CA Technologies Steven Guthrie- Please check this video, where each of them share some highlights of the day.
Cisco CEO and Chairman John Chambers key note was the highlight of the day – John Chambers was just coming back from theWorld Economic Forum where he met leaders such as the UK prime minister, and shared their growing interest for the solutions that Cisco and the other technology leaders have to offer to develop at an increasing rate the economy and the productivity of the countries. In his speech, as he did in Davos, John Chambers reaffirmed that “ The network changes the way citizens work, live , play and learn, transforming competitiveness through innovation and productivity”
Then he insisted that “people in this room should not underestimate the role they play in future success of Europe..Economy based on Innovation and creating unprecedented productivity levels “ Then he described the movement from “Information Economy” to “Networked Economy” with profits created by providing relevance’s instead of just processing data, with easy access to expertise, instead of just information, with communities and relationships, and not only individuals & processes. Finally he insisted on the combination of Innovation and operational excellence as a clear feature of the “Networked Economy” To watch John’s speech at Cisco Live London please visit here.
