Industrial Intelligence is a multi-billion dollar opportunity growing at approximately 20% per year over the next five years. Much of the growth is driven by the proliferation of smart devices globally, and Cisco partners have a unique opportunity to provide the technology to connect an estimated trillion devices by 2020. In this “how to” workshop, the speakers will introduce the Cisco Industrial Intelligence for Manufacturers market opportunity, target customers, solution portfolio, case studies, and sales tools to help partners succeed.

The strong and collaborative partnership Cisco has with LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games) is not just confined to a business relationship. We are both fully committed to Inclusion and Diversity -- understanding the importance of diversity and the value it brings and embracing difference whether that’s age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion and belief or sexual orientation (you may recall my previous blog post on this topic).
And we aren’t just talking about fostering an inclusive and diverse workforce – it’s also about using Inclusive and Diverse practices to better serve our global customers and partners. For LOCOG, this means all the people around the world who will be flying into London, one of the most diverse cities in the world. And LOCOG is up against an additional challenge – its immovable deadline.
I decided to find out a bit more about this topic and reached out to Sue Hunt, Director of Strategic Programmes at LOCOG. If you have any comments about this post, please post them below.
Cisco UK is also involved in a number of internal activities to encourage its employees to get involved in the London 2012 Olympics. Stay tuned for more on this topic.
The countdown continues -- only a few more days until InfoComm begins in Orlando, Florida! We asked Cisco TelePresence VP/ GM Thomas Wyatt to take a few minutes and talk about a topic on every video customer’s mind: interoperability.
In the video below, Thomas describes the customer feedback he’s been hearing, including their biggest pain points when it comes to deploying and using video solutions, as well as his vision for interoperability in the future. Where do we see interoperability in the next 2-3 years?
The Just a quick reminder for Cisco Partners to attend the Cisco and Librestream Partner Webinar tomorrow (9th June 2011) at 8.00am Pacific. Find out about the exciting new solution that’s being adopted worldwide by customers like Boeing, GE and FIAT.
Remember how I told you I was really excited by this new Cisco and Librestream MMVC solution. Lots of information out on the web, and lots of questions so I thought I’d put a brief video together to give you an introduction and to see if we can get a discussion going and also to see if we can answer some of the questions for you. It addresses what really matters to many customers. What are the pain-points that manufacturers and industry have today? How do they get hold of the right people to fix things if something goes wrong, and how can they say ‘I see what you mean now’ — and really mean it? My original blog gave lots of information.
If you are a Cisco Partner and interested in building a manufacturing industry practice, this webinar is for you!

I spend a lot of time talking with customers representing many industries across the globe. Like most industries, financial institutions are looking for new ways to retain and grow their customer base while continuing to provide exceptional customer experiences.
One solution that many are implementing is the use of video to create access to remote experts in a personalized way.
Cisco's Remote Expert solution
With the expanding role of the network, pervasive video allows customers to access all the financial expertise they need at one time, in one place via the channel of their choice. Now consumers are no longer reliant on in-branch resources and schedules they can choose to connect by video and instantly access a pool of experts regardless of location. It’s a win-win for both the customer and the financial institution.
One example of Cisco Remote Expert application in a client retail environment is the Citizens Financial Group Video Banking solution. This pilot, announced today, helped Citizens transform their mortgage and wealth management customer experience by enabling real-time access to experts, information, advice and solutions to both Citizens and Charter One customers.
