Sherri Liebo provided a great update this week on Cisco Intercloud. In her blog entitled Cisco Intercloud Makes Strides Leading up to Partner Summit 2015, she gives a quick, but thorough, update on just what Cisco’s been up to since introducing Cisco Intercloud in Las Vegas last year.

Check out her blog for an overview of last year’s launch, a look at what Cisco has accomplished since then and a view forward of what to expect next as we head toward Partner Summit 2015.

Let’s Talk Firsts and Lasts

Cisco Intercloud makes Strides Leading up to Partner Summit 2015

Welcome back from the holidays and welcome to 2015! I trust you’ve all settled back into your work routines after enjoying some much-earned time off with friends and family. Temperatures across the U.S. continue to drop, but things in our world are heating up as we kick off the New Year. In fact, Cisco Partner Summit 2015 will be here before you know it.

The end of April is just a little more than three months out and we can’t wait to see some of you in Montreal this year. Speaking of Partner Summit, it was at last year’s event where we launched what I wanted to touch on today.

I promise I’ll keep this one short, but since launching Cisco Intercloud in Las Vegas last year, we really have accomplished a great deal, and I want to be sure that you, as a member of The Cisco Partner Ecosystem, are not missing out on any opportunities. Hhere is a little recap on Cisco Intercloud from Partner Summit 2014 until now. Read More »

Partner Voices: Be a Leading Player and Tell your customer story

The most powerful marketing content is an inspired success story. In my recent blog, I told you how our Master Specialized partners are solving customers’ key business problems.  I want to share another incredible story of how a Cisco partner, Core BTS, created a powerful solution for their customer.

A technology foundation for the future

The banking industry has a reputation for speaking conservatively. So, when a bank president describes working with a Cisco partner as “remarkable,” it speaks volumes about the partner and their capabilities.

Core BTS, a Master Specialized partner, was chosen by North Country Savings Bank to help transform the 100-year old bank’s services. They needed a video solution to connect their customers to their offsite service representatives. The bank wanted to improve collaboration and training across offices. And decrease travel time and cost.

The bank described the new wireless, voice, and video solution as the “technology foundation that will carry us into the future.”

Up your game with the Cisco Partner Ecosystem

As a Master specialized partner, customers will expect to have deep, far-ranging conversations with you. Become a part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem and find the capabilities your customers need, all within the safety of Cisco-validated partnerships. Give your customers more value and solve even more complex problems. Read More »
