“Do you have a vision for tomorrow? Cisco does.”
Next week I’ll join Chairman and CEO John Chambers and Chief Technology and Strategy Officer Padmasree Warrior to officially kick off Cisco Live 2013 in Orlando, Florida. We’ll be sharing our vision for the new opportunities and amazing things that can happen when you connect the previously unconnected.

During our opening address, my colleagues and I will share our predictions about how the intersection of the four elements of the IoE – people, process, data and things – creates new capabilities and experiences that are more relevant and valuable than ever before.
