Cisco Live Milan last year was my first exposure to a Cisco Live event since I joined Cisco IT nine years ago. It was by far the most impactful and empowering technology event I have ever participated in.
Watching the eagerness, enthusiasm and anticipation of the thousands of attendees who come through the gates of MiCo Milan on the first morning; was inspirational. The attendees waiting excitedly at registration had the same shine in their eyes as children waiting in line to enter Disney World. And Cisco Live Milan did not disappoint.
The participants enthusiasm was contagious and got me so excited to present my three Cisco on Cisco sessions.
Cisco Live Berlin 2016 is just days away, and I am really looking forward to meeting and engaging with the participants at the Cisco on Cisco booth, at the IT Management program, and at my Cisco on Cisco COCDCT-2002 session where I’ll be sharing with you Cisco IT’s cloud based IT as a Service (ITaaS) transformational program and strategy.
Though Milan was great, Berlin will be SPECTACULAR! More attendees, more technical sessions, more opportunities to engage with Cisco experts, and all taking place in the incredible city of berlin and at one of the best locations in Europe, the phenomenal Messe Berlin events center.
As you can see, I am energized and excited!
See you at Cisco Live Berlin… let the countdown begin!
Watch as I provide Rich Gore, Cisco IT member of Technical Staff, an update on how Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is enabling Cisco IT to operate efficiently and effectively from the Data Center in Allen, Texas.

We explore implementation costs, smaller environment deployment options, load balancing and Quality of Service (QoS) delivery systems.
I’ve been thinking a long time about this and I wanted to write and mention a few annoying things about your contact center. I also have some great suggestions for you on how you can improve your customer service. I’m not saying I have all the answers but as a valued customer I thought you might like to hear from me. I believe these opinions are not just mine, but probably span a large part of your loyal client base. Read More »
