Partner Summit 2011: News, Highlights, and Tweets

- March 3, 2011 - 0 Comments

It was another great day at Partner Summit 2011 on the bayou, where the music is fantastic, the beignets are amazing, and the Partner Summit news is awesome!

At Wednesday’s general session, the focus was on how to impact innovation with Michael Capellas, CEO of VCE, and Padmasree Warrior, Cisco’s CTO. Both highlighted Cisco technologies to help partners to differentiate.

We’ve got all of the event highlights, news, and details you need to know from Wednesday.

And since social media is such a big part of this year’s conference, we’re going to highlight a few of the tweets that have come through:

@Padmasree: John Chambers “#cisco Cius is my new fave product” 🙂 Thanks boss! #ciscops11

@Intel_Don RT @Cisco_Channels: Chambers in partner Q&A “partnering is the future.” #ciscops11- i totally agree John C. is the man…

@simpson74 Cisco Collaboration session pretty neat. Lots of exciting things there to leverage. #ciscops11

@dyarashus John Growden’s data center sessions are among the most useful at #ciscops11

@Lahey13 I’d love to own a Cius tablet #justsaying #Ciscops11

@phornak Attending Cisco Gold Partners lunch. Great opportunity to discuss with Cisco executives. #ciscops11

And, an only in New Orleans tweet:

@channelbuzzca #ciscops11 drinking game: Every time a Cisco exec talks about competitors driving network towards commoditization, drink.

On the last day of Partner Summit, we’ll hear from futurist Dr. James Canton and finish out the day with EVP Rob Lloyd.
