Following the Hortonworks Blog, we are lucky to have James Gold from SAP as next blogger in the Why I love Big Data guest partner series. James explains how customers experience is greatly improved via predictive maintenance in a connected factory.
James Gold, Director, Global Technology Partner Marketing, SAP SE
Jim is an enterprise software veteran who’s held a number of senior marketing and business development positions at large, mid-size and startup technology companies. In his current position as Director of Global Technology Partner Marketing for SAP, he’s responsible for co-marketing, business development and co-innovation of key SAP strategic alliances, including Cisco Systems, Inc. Previously, he held product marketing positions in support of SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAP virtualization technologies.
Prior to SAP, Jim worked in a variety of senior roles in partner and product marketing, business development and channel enablement. He began his software career at IBM, and has worked at Intuit, LivePerson and Lithium Technologies, among others.Jim graduated cum laude from the University of Vermont, and has done graduate work in business and political science.
If you’ve spent much of your career in customer facing roles as I have, you know it from experience: whatever your business, there’s simply no substitute for a true customer advocate. It’s been said more than once that “the most important person selling what you’re offering is…your customer.” And with no shortage of vehicles to share product and service experiences, we all know that your customer’s opinion — positive or negative — can impact business like never before.
So what does this have to do with Big Data, Analytics, and Internet of Everything (IoE) – along with SAP, Hortonworks and Cisco? I hope you’ll stop by World of Solutions (1733) Connected Factory at Cisco Live to find out for yourself! You’ll see a powerful example of a Predictive Maintenance application that combines real-time and historical data about asset performance and repair to proactively prevent disruptions, increase manufacturing yield, reduce costs – and ultimately improve customer service.

Cisco Live is coming up next week in San Diego. I know many of you will be there to show just how the Cisco Partner Ecosystem provides the business outcomes our customers demand. I’ll be heading there on Sunday and I hope to see many of you while I’m there.
The Cisco Partner Social Media team will be on hand to help keep you focused on the happenings of interest to Cisco Partners. Be sure to let me know where my focus can help you and I will certainly do what I can to make sure you have the information you need.
Now before we get to San Diego next week, I thought I’d give you a brief look at where I’ll be focusing my efforts next week: Read More »

One of the great things about Cisco Live is the people you meet. While the classes, hands-on labs, and speaking sessions are all great, if you’re willing to take the extra step beyond the convention center, you can meet people you will continue to learn from all year.
To facilitate this – this meeting of people that can sometimes feel a bit awkward – I’ve set up two activities that should be fun and help overcome some of the awkwardness: #GeekSlices & #SelfieBINGO!
#GeekSlices is a big, informal pizza & beverages gathering. Think of this as a great opportunity to meet others in the community over a drink and tasting some of the best pizza ever. EVER.
To join us, just sign up http://tweetvite.com/event/GeekSlices (If you really really don’t want to use twitter, come find me in the social media lounge or the Data Center booth to get details.)
#SelfieBINGO – Is a big game of BINGO where you find people on each square, take a selfie with them, and tweet it. It’s fun because it basically gives you a list of 25 new people to seek out at Cisco Live. If you’re playing, these are people who have self-selected as willing and interested in meeting new people. We’ll be playing throughout the week. Read More »
