And, after March Madness, where Manufacturing?

So here we are, at the end of March Madness. I saw a news story today that said out of 500,000 people that picked a bracket only 2 picked the existing Final Four.

I heard other statistics about how many times the top 1 and 2 seeds didn’t make it to the Final Four. This was a very unique season.

So, OK. This week baseball season opens. And by the way, the Brewers will rock the league.

But let’s talk about Manufacturing.

We know you are reading our blogs. Some of you comment on them. Some of you comment privately to others. Some of you probably read them and think whatever your thoughts are.

Here is your opportunity:

Peter and Chet and Paul and Kevin and I will continue to write blogs about whatever “we” think is the relevant topic of the week.

But, we would far rather write about what you think is important. Let us know that. What do you want us to do with this blog, and what do you want us to talk about?

By the way -- my Final Four choices got broken pretty early. And it was a pretty great season, yes? I picked the top 1 seeds from each group, so hey, I was wrong. But I had good rationale for my choices. As does the rest of our Cisco manufacturing team. Try us, ask away, engage us. You won’t be sorry.

  1. Hi Mark,

    HOw about something on virtualisation in the factory, and not just server virtualisation, but what about PLC virtualisation? Is it going to happen, when’s it going to happen, and how is it going to happen? What could it look like? Would you use private or public clouds? Could PLC processes be offered as services by partners?

    Cheers
    Paul.
