A Cloud Partner Program Like No Other In The Channel

It’s been more than two years since we introduced the Cisco Cloud Partner Program and began putting partners at the center of Cisco’s cloud strategy. Now, we’re going wider and deeper with all of the ways Cisco helps you, our partners, win in the cloud era.

In the last two years, the cloud market has exploded and analyst projections are for continued growth in the future.  Using Gartner research, we also understand that by 2015, half of all CIOs expect to operate the majority of their applications and infrastructure via the cloud, and that by 2016, global spending on public cloud services will grow to more than $200 billion.

There’s no question that the advent of cloud has changed the customer sales cycle. IT decision making power is increasingly moving into individual lines of business, whose managers are buying computing as an operating expense from cloud service providers or services resellers.  Therefore, Cisco’s cloud strategy is to enable, versus compete with, our partners and customers – a major difference when you consider how other vendors restrict sales of cloud-enabled services to their direct sales teams.   As a cloud enabler, Cisco helps customers build, deploy, and consume cloud services and at the same time, we stimulate demand for partners’ Cisco Powered cloud and managed services.
