As Global Industry Director for Manufacturing at Cisco, Chet Namboodri is looking forward to joining you and more than 20,000 of your colleagues at our 2013 Cisco Live event in Orlando, Florida, during June 23-27.
As part of this year’s Cisco Live on Tuesday afternoon, June 25, I’ll be hosting a one hour break-out session (number BRKIND-1229) titled “Cisco Industrial Solutions and Best Practices for Manufacturing”. This session is for manufacturers, their suppliers and their partners who are looking for transparent integration and secure real-time visibility between business networks with control and automation systems—and want to find out the business value that will give them.
In that session I’ll be talking about how you can unify the different kinds of networks – those that utilize information technologies, or IT and those that utilize operational technology, or OT. Just think of the ease of management, support and expansion with an open-standards based architecture that not only reduces total cost of ownership (TCO), but is already providing Cisco customers with real business returns. I’ll talk more about that and give you customer names and use cases at Cisco Live.
One of the key ways Cisco can help you get there is with “Cisco Smart Solutions,” which provide the open-standard, IP-based communication and control I mentioned to reduce costs, improve up-time, increase asset utilization, and lock-down on end-to-end security. During the session, I’ll not only talk about case studies, but even have a live business demonstration over TelePresence to showcase different business capabilities and value achieved with these converged IT/OT solutions.

Success in the highly competitive consumer packaged goods (CPG) and retail industry depends on broad-ranging collaboration, accelerated innovation, and employees who are empowered and productive every step along the way—from product development, to merchandising and sourcing, to store management and customer service.
