We use them in the office, in the car, at the café. They help us close deals, build relationships, and access resources. What are they? Devices, of course.
Currently, over three out of every four employees have multiple devices, according to the Cisco Connected world Technology Report. What’s more, one in three employees globally use at least three devices for work.
For our partners, though, this trend isn’t really about devices. It’s about how to provide your customers’ Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) employees seamless access regardless of device or connection point. It’s also about how to ensure security, simplification, and high performance.
The answer is easy. Let me introduce the brand new Cisco BYOD+ solution—a game changer in Enterprise mobility.
This end-to-end solution empowers your customers to go beyond simply connecting user-owned devices to scaling the experience of many users with multiple devices, anytime, anywhere. Plus, Cisco BYOD+ delivers a unified security policy across the entire organization—a relief to any organization. It also optimizes and manages the experience to meet the needs of many types of users with diverse devices, security, and business requirements.
The bottom line: your customers can safely extend the right level of access and performance in every situation.
Let me guess? You’re ready to load up on devices, make appointments with customers, and share the BYOD+ story. Read More »
With the proliferation of iPads and other consumer devices, the Cius is quickly becoming a hot commodity for customers. With the device’s support for a diverse set of third-party endpoints and Unified Computing System (UCS) integration, unique applications, and video, the Cius is truly a business-focused tablet that fits right into the network.
And the key to selling the Cius? According to Tech2000 CEO George Churchwell it’s all about “appifying” the environment.
Appify? Huh? What does this Learning Solutions Partner know that we don’t?
Well, let’s start with a definition. You won’t find this in the dictionary:
verb: To apply mobile solutions that allow the Cius developer’s kit to be implemented, thereby letting the Cius apps and functionality lead the sale. With apps, UCS solutions and WebEx solutions can be integrated right into the Cius platform and help solve customer problems.
This strategy has been wildly successful for Tech2000, which has helped a number of Cisco partners sell UCS solutions by creating apps. Unlike an iPad, the Cius offers the ability to integrate wireless and WebEx solutions right into apps and into the platform while solving a customer problem.
Watch this video as George offers advice and examples of successful Cius apps and tips to help partners get training on the go.
What else did George have to say? Keep reading for his advice, tips, and experiences with apps and the Cius. Read More »
How many devices do you have that are sucking up IP addresses? Apple continues to lure me in for the latest and greatest iPad and iPhones, with the new iPad being the latest to capture my eye. This continual proliferation of devices has been illustrated in the latest VNI results. Apple of course enables these devices with a fully functioning IPv6 stack as was demonstrated at the IPv6 World Congress this year. While at the IPv6 World Congress 2012 we had the opportunity to chat with Jacqueline Queiroz , a Network Architect with Orange, about IPv6 adoption.
Network operators, content providers and device manufacturers all are navigating the IPv6 migration waters – Orange is no different. IPv6 adoption progress varies, but France has been proven to be one of the global leaders in IPv6 adoption. This was well chronicled in a study conducted by Google and discussed further here. Orange being headquartered in France plays an obvious role in this adoption trend. Read More »
Traditionally, customer satisfaction is driven by product availability and the ability of the staff to assist the shopper and complete the transaction. This model today is being broken by the modern consumer who is playing by different rules.
