Cisco Partner Summit 2014: John Chambers’ Message to Partners

March 28, 2014 at 7:30 am PST

It’s the end of a fantastic week at Cisco Partner Summit 2014. In case you missed any of the information this week, be sure to check out the day one, day two and day three recaps of this week’s event.

During next week, we will wrap up our coverage of Cisco Partner Summit 2014 with more executive interviews and some more thoughts from our partner ambassadors. However, to wrap up this week, we had the opportunity to talk to the man that heads up Cisco, Chairman and CEO John Chambers.

John was gracious enough to sit down with us and offer his thoughts on what’s been on the minds of our partners, what you need to focus on to make the Internet of Everything (IoE) viable for your clients, and what key takeaways you should walk away with from Cisco Partner Summit 2014.

As John mentioned, we are all facing the “pace of change squared,” but by staying committed to its partners, focusing on market transition, and listening to customers, Cisco can be the number one IT company in the world.
