Off the Top
As we move into fall, things are really picking up at industry events. This week in New York, Cisco spent time at Interop helping partners transform, create new opportunities and claim their share of the Internet of Everything (IoE) economy.
We announced our latest innovations to Unified Access. Be sure to check out my blog to catch the newest enhancements. If you weren’t able to catch John Chambers’ keynote speech from Wednesday at Interop, the replay is now available as well.
The latest in our Partner Voices series this week featured Colin McNamara, Nexus IS Director of Cloud Practice and Chief Cloud Architect. The Partner Voices series features partner success stories where partners help customers achieve their goals using Cisco technology, and this week is all about why Agile tools and processes are critical to IT Operations.
Channelnomics Most Admired Channel Programs
We like to “tip our cap” to our partners whenever we get the chance, and no time is better than when we get picked as Channelnomics number one most admired channel program. We know that type of attention in channel doesn’t happen without such great partners, so let us thank you for helping us gain this recognition!
New Cisco UCS Sizer for Enterprise Applications tool
There’s a brand new tool in town for partners selling Cisco UCS. The Cisco UCS Sizer for Enterprise Applications tool helps Cisco partners determine the optimal hardware configurations for SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft SQL Server. It is a web-based tool and supports both UCS B-Series Blade and C-Series Rack Servers. After entering the application specific information, a detailed report is created and can be exported in Microsoft Excel, PDF, or XML formats. The report contains a summary of the solution and inputs as well as a detailed bill of materials for easy ordering of all the required components. Get started with the Cisco UCS Sizer for Enterprise Applications tool today.
