I have had a great time in San Diego this week for Cisco Live US. I kicked off this week with a look at the Solution Partner Forum from Sunday. I also pointed out a dew of the things to look for throughout the week. I hope that helped you plan your week here in San Diego or at least follow along more easily from afar.
On Tuesday, Al Jacobellis gave you some insight on just how the security announcement this week affects Cisco Partners. If you did not yet read Al’s blog, be sure to check it out. He does a great job of showing you how our partner incentive programs can help you take advantage in the marketplace.
Edison Peres also had a great post this week on how application developers are completing the Intercloud puzzle here at Cisco. Let us know what you think of Edison’s blog, and join us in welcoming the new partners to Cisco Intercloud.
Finally, Rick Snyder wrapped up Cisco Live with his thoughts on the show and a look at how the Cisco Partner Ecosystem supports these Cisco events.
While I am happy to be home today, I already miss the energy and excitement from Cisco Live. It’s great to meet so many customers and partners who are putting our business outcomes in place every day. Read More »

As we close another fantastic Cisco Live week in San Diego, showcasing the latest solution developments from Cisco and our Partners, I can’t help thinking about the amazing journey we’ve experienced with our partners during Cisco’s 30 years. Today, more than ever before, our ability to collaborate effectively with all partner types to deliver business outcomes to our customers is simply mission critical.
Cisco established itself as a market leader when we helped to build the internet. Now, what’s tremendously exciting to me is that we’re at the forefront once again – as we drive to digitize everything – via the Internet of Everything (IoE). Here’s even better news – the Cisco Partner Ecosystem has grown in breadth, depth and connectedness to help Cisco make the Internet of Everything come to life with Cisco.
Cisco Live really brought all of this to life for me – the journey and our collective readiness. Read More »

During the past year, the pieces of our Intercloud strategy have been falling into place. We’ve built out the technology, created services and orchestrated a robust partner ecosystem.
The reality is that Cisco is placing a big bet on our partners. We believe that a partner-centric strategy will prove to be the winning cloud model. We believe that by working with our partners we can move more quickly, deliver more innovation, and provide global scale and local presence.
Today we’re announcing that 35 independent software vendors (ISVs) will join the Intercloud partner ecosystem. The addition of these application developers not only adds another piece to the Intercloud Ecosystem puzzle, it actually completes the picture.

It’s impossible to turn on a TV or read a newspaper without hearing about cybersecurity breaches. Security is top of mind for everyone, and it’s definitely a top priority for Cisco.
Yesterday, at Cisco Live 2015 in San Diego, CA, we announced “Security Everywhere.” The Internet of Everything has generated new business models, better work environments, and consumer experiences. It has also opened more opportunities for hackers. Our new portfolio embeds security across the extended network, from the data center to endpoints, branch offices, and the cloud. This provides threat visibility and control. By integrating “Security Everywhere,” you can deliver the security requirements demanded by today’s dynamic threat landscape, and capture emerging business opportunities.
I’d like to highlight some of the solutions that will help you. Read More »

So I encountered a bit of turbulence on my way out west yesterday, but it’s been smooth sailing since I touched down in San Diego for Cisco Live. It looks like it’s been that way for most of the partners I’ve talked to as well.
The weather is gorgeous here (it is San Diego, so no shocker there) and the conversation has been lively. In fact, I was lucky enough to arrive yesterday in time to take in part of the Solution Partner Forum before Cisco Live officially kicked off today.
The Solution Partner Forum provides program members with networking opportunities, new program updates and useful resources. All of this is designed to help you accelerate your business growth and advance your partnership with Cisco.
We opened up today visiting a packed Cisco ONE Software Partner Forum to see partners interacting and discussing our Cisco ONE Software offering, which is “A more valuable & flexible way to consume software”. The interest level from partners was at a peak during the customer success story interview with Hormel Foods. You can learn more about Cisco ONE and how to start selling right here.
The Solution Partners were able to reconvene for a partner power lunch where Cisco condensed about eight hours of material into an interactive two hour lunch that provided a great deal of feedback and insight as well.
Don’t forget that the Cisco Partner Social Media team will be on hand to help keep you focused on the happenings of interest to Cisco Partners throughout the week. Be sure to let me know where my focus can help you and I will certainly do what I can to make sure you have the information you need. Watch the partner twitter feed for the latest information!
As we continue throughout the week, don’t forget we will have information from the following areas, and more: Read More »
