Yesterday at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco you could easily see that we are in a new age of innovation as different technology leading vendors showed their vision for how Web 2.0 will transform how we work and play.One interesting proof of concept demonstration was between Rod Smith of IBM’s Emerging Technology Group and Guido Jouret of Cisco’s Emerging Technology Group. Together they demonstrated their Web 2.0 vision and explored how mash-ups and live video can be used together to bring immediate business value. The demo shows how quickly and easily someone can build the ultimate video mash-up with applications such as video surveillance, personal security, retail analytics-and without the need for highly skilled programmers! eWeek writes about this here.Video of IBM and Cisco Video Mash-up Demonstration Rod Smith talked about how IBM’s Web 2.0 Mash-ups offer businesses the ability to easily and quickly build line-of-business applications to address immediate needs for different types of information that are specific to their business needs. Then Guido Jouret discussed how video has become more expected in every aspect of the workplace. Guido Jouret highlighted Cisco’s end-to-end video business systems and discussed how easily video can be delivered in the latest Web 2.0 environments, such as IBM mash-up. Video of Cisco’s Guido Jouret at Web 2.0 SummitSomething else to look out for at the Web 2.0 Summit is tomorrow when Cisco’s CTO Padmasree Warrior and other technology vendors like HP, discuss the future of Web 2.0 and how it is driving cloud computing. Should be an interesting session.Post by Pam Ferrill, PR Manager

We will always strive to be transparent about what we’re seeing and hearing from customers and we we will always err on the conservative side.

We thought it would be useful for interested parties to hear directly from our Chairman and CEO John Chambers about what Cisco is doing in these challenging economic times. He talks about, in part, that while we will undertake appropriate expense management initiatives in the current environment, we will also make some calculated investments into areas where we believe we can accelerate development and Cisco’s leadership.To listen to a replay of our Q109 earnings call, please visit our Investor Relations website.Chairman and CEO John Chambers
