We’ve just updated our the Newsroom for our Emerging Markets theater with the content from this blog so we now have one page that contains both our press releases and an RSS feed from the emerging countries blog itself in one handy page… There you’ll find a wealth of content from our emerging markets team that you may want to bookmark for the future: http://newsroom.cisco.com/emerging
Just as reminder, Cisco recognised the opportunity for emerging markets early and evolved, from the traditional EMEA model that most technology companies still use, to a dedicated model that puts focus on emerging markets specifically. At the same time we created a dedicated European Markets organisation. We created our Emerging Markets sales theatre back in June 2005 under SVP Paul Mountford to cover territory from Russia / CIS through Europe East, the Middle East and Africa and our Latin American markets given the synergies we recognised in the development of these markets.
This is the RSS if you want to subscribe to our official press releases from our Emerging Markets sales theatre:
and this is the RSS feed if you just want to subscribe to the Emerging Countries blog posts:
We’re looking into a combined news and blog feed for the future so please stay tuned.
We also have dedicated regional news pages for Latin America (Spanish, Portguese), Africa (English), Middle East (English) that are part of our emerging markets theatre specifically. You may also be interested in our India page (English) and our globalisation site (English).
Just as a reminder, revenues from India are actually reported as part of our Asia-Pacific Theater. We evolved the structure in APAC and Japan recently to support our investments and growth plans in the region. This included creating a dedicated theatre called Greater China Theater which includes China P.R.C, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
I think that covers most of the organisational updates -- please let me know if you have any questions obviously.
