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 »

As the first in the series of “Why I love Big Data blogs” with our Big Data and Analytics partners, I am pleased to have Cecile share how Hortonworks is working with Cisco to bring business solutions to our joint customers.
Guest Blogger: Cecile Poyet, Alliance Marketing Manager at Hortonworks
One of the most exciting, yet challenging opportunities companies face today is related to data. Every year, they have to deal with about 40% more data than the year before. How does your organization take advantage and make sense of this exponentially growing resource?
Hortonworks and Cisco have been partnering to help you build massively scalable big data solutions that expand with your needs and provide you with an industry-leading platform for Hadoop-based applications.
Fully tested and certified, the Cisco UCS solution for HDP is based on UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data, a highly scalable and efficient architecture designed to meet the demands of rapidly growing big data environments with cohesive data integration and powerful management-automation capabilities. With Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data, we have helped enterprises smoothly integrate Hadoop with their computing, networking, and storage resources to run Hadoop clusters.

On May 25 2015, I had the honor to participate on a panel on Digital Inclusion of Women for Gender Equality at WSIS 2015, held in Geneva, Switzerland:
Women with varying backgrounds from all parts of the world, passionately discussed the opportunities to advocate for change both in the industry and in government.
Questions for all of us to posit may be the following: Read More »

Why do I love Big Data so much? It’s because there are endless possibilities to deliver on the Internet of Everything (IoE) opportunity that will create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunities for businesses, countries, and individuals. Analytics is an enormous part of that value creation and is estimated to drive $7.3T of the $19T IoE opportunity over the next 10 years.
Big Data and Analytics take the data created by people, processes, and things – that’s held within the Data Center and at the Edge – and convert it to insights that deliver the truly transformational business outcomes for which we all strive. I’m not talking about ‘iterative’ changes here. I’m talking about game-changing breakthroughs that change the way businesses compete, healthcare teams treat their patients, and cities and governments meet the needs of their constituents.
Cisco has incredible Connected Analytics offerings that address the needs of data streaming at the edge. These offerings are complemented by solutions based on Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure and broad ecosystem of Big Data & Analytics Partners.
