It’s always great to hear from Sherri Liebo and she dropped by the Channels Blog this week with the latest in her Marketing Superhero series. Remember the superheroes introduced at this year’s Marketing Velocity event in Chicago? Well this week, Sherri focused on the Wonder Vision ability.

She also took a look at how the Wonder Vision ability, which lets you “see what no one yet can see” allows for insight into areas such as the $4.6 trillion opportunity in Internet of Everything (IoE) in the public sector.

June 11, 2014 at 7:30 am PST

As I mentioned at the end of Marketing Velocity 2014, I am starting a fun blog series based on the marketing superheroes introduced at the event in Chicago. I will spend the next few months talking individually about the five superheroes we introduced at Cisco Marketing Velocity:

  • Alchemist – The power to blend art with science in a way no one can ignore
  • Super Voice – The power to reach millions at the same time
  • Data Man – The power to turn piles of data into competitive insights and deliver real marketing value

Cloud and Managed Services Portfolio Expands with Six New Cisco Powered Services

Cloud has revolutionized the way we develop, deploy, buy and sell. Businesses today are increasingly looking to add hybrid, private and public cloud solutions to their existing managed services to deploy cost-effective solutions. This increases their agility to scale up or down, boosts productivity, and helps simplify operations. This means that resources can focus on the core business, reduce total cost of ownership, and find smart ways to replace an aging infrastructure. This, in my opinion, is leading to profound change and presenting countless new business opportunities.

Our recent Intercloud announcements from Rob Lloyd and Edison Peres underscore Cisco’s commitment to Cloud based consumption models and today we are expanding our cloud and managed services portfolio to include five new Cisco Powered Cloud Services and one new Cisco Powered Managed Service portfolio for a total of 11 Cisco Powered Cloud and 10 Managed services. This will continue to enable our Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Program (CMSP) partners to expand their portfolio of cloud and managed offers to transform the customer experience. Read More »
