New Executive Insight Series: Q & A with Wendy Bahr

We kicked off a new series this week here on the partner blog.  Our Executive Insight series will visit with Cisco execs from time to time to provide partners insight into Cisco’s key focus areas, themes, tech topics and more as they relate to our partners and the partner ecosystem.
