- March 2, 2011 - 1 Comment

So much happened on Tuesday at Cisco Partner Summit: musical performances, artist Frency painting in the moment on stage, as well as keynotes from SVP Keith Goodwin, Cisco CEO John Chambers, SVP Edison Peres, and the new Cisco COO Gary Moore. We also heard big announcements around cloud and collaborative professional services.

We had some other exciting things happening on Tuesday, so watch our short Partner Update newscast for the day’s highlights.

Did you miss any of the sessions from Tuesday? Don’t worry, you can still watch them…

If you missed keynotes from John Chambers, Keith Goodwin, Edison Peres, and SVP of Services Karl Meulema, replays will be available on Virtual Partner Summit—you can also catch replays of the Theater breakout sessions, so be sure to visit the site and check those chats out.

So what’s up for Wednesday? Well, Michael Capellas, the CEO of VCE, will talk at the General Session, telling partners about how to accelerate the adoption of virtualized cloud infrastructures.

He’ll be followed by Padmasree Warrior, Cisco’s CTO, who will discuss how partners can impact our mutual customers and take advantage of market transitions and growth opportunities. Padma will also be answering your questions in a live video broadcast in Virtual Partner Summit. And we’ll have Business Leadership and Transformation breakouts, so get ready!
