September 21, 2011 at 4:00 am PST

________

Do you know the expected size of the audience at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 in San Francisco , October 2-6. ?  Probably at least 41 000 attendees .No doubt that this year again the huge software company will succeed in attracting a very large crowd of IT decision makers and managers anxious to  learn more,  and solve daily problems as well as planning future services for their organizations.

Cisco this year again will be present as a diamond sponsor – And guess what ? John  Chambers , Chairman and CEO of Cisco will on Wednesday October 5 morning the key notes speaker starting at 8:00 am PST . Well ..what does it mean ?  Let me give you my perspective on that

First the partnership  between Oracle and Cisco is getting stronger and deeper over the time- Yes our entrance on the server market with the Unified Computing systems at the time that Oracle was acquiring Sun Microsystems makes the relationhip more complex , but let’s face it – Oracle is first of all a software company, and when a company like Cisco is coming with a very successful server  platform which makes your software shine in terms of performances, you definitely want your applications on this platform.

John Chambers at Cisco Live 2011: Cisco Will Drive the Future of Networking

July 12, 2011 at 5:15 pm PST

Cisco Live 2011 officially kicked off today in true Las Vegas style. As conference attendees waited for Cisco SVP Carlos Dominguez to give the welcome address, flash mobbers disguised as event attendees suddenly arose from their seats and began a choreographed dance to the Black Eyed Peas’ hit “I Gotta Feeling.” and the Beatles song “All Together Now.”

Carlos then entered the stage and welcomed the staggering number of attendees: 15,000+ live attendees and 40,000+ virtual attendees across 150+ countries.

Then it was Chairman and CEO John Chambers’ turn to address attendees. Keeping in line with recent announcements, John agreed that there was a need to simplify operations at Cisco to make it easier for customers and partners to do business with us and he promised that changes would be coming soon.

This Week at Cisco Live 2011: Networking, Cloud, Virtualization, and More!

July 11, 2011 at 4:29 pm PST

I’m here in Las Vegas and aside from enjoying a frosty beverage or two by the pool and betting my next paycheck at the Black Jack tables, I’m attending Cisco Live 2011. This annual education and training event is like the World Cup of networking events, where IT, networking, and communications professionals join Cisco experts and partners to learn, connect, and collaborate.

There are so many different sessions and keynotes taking place at Cisco Live this week, but don’t worry if you can’t attend every event. I’ll be posting daily recaps here on the Channels blog, talking to partners at the conference, covering the big news, as well as sending out live tweets.

Cisco Live 2011 officially kicks off tomorrow with a keynote and welcome address from Chairman and CEO John Chambers. John is slated to discuss the future of networking and communication technology, and the ways it will transform business practices, education, and social relationships.
