The team is back in town and recovering after a tremendous showing in Chicago for Automation Fair. As a preview for the blogs to come in the next few weeks, I asked each team member to summarize the event in 2-3 sentences – about 15 seconds of reading time. Here’s what they said: Read More »
Congratulations Cisco team! Automation Fair has drawn to a close and we are celebrating a successful event.
It was so great to meet face-to-face with our customers and discuss all of the exciting technologies which are available to the Manufacturing Industry. We were particularly pleased that our customers now recognize Cisco as not only a provider of products, such as routers and switches, but also as a provider of Solutions.
Stay tuned to our blog for all of the in-depth discussion and analysis our team will provide from their experiences at Automation Fair. Please join the conversation and let us know what you thought of what you saw at the event!

One thing we’re really proud of this year is that customers at Automation Fair are no longer asking: “Why are you here, Cisco?” They know why. From our Industrial Intelligence solutions to our promotion of Convergence and the Internet of Things, manufacturers now know the benefits Cisco can bring them.
And hold tight for Day 2 at Automation Fair, Part 2 — coming soon!

In 2011, only 30 percent of global manufacturing companies plan to increase spending on social media and community marketing, according to a March report from Forrester Research titled Bigger B2B Marketing Budgets Come With Great Expectations. That compares with 53 percent of pharmaceutical companies and 50 percent of business and professional services companies.
At Cisco, we’re leading the way to change all that. Also, you may have noticed that Cisco manufacturing also has a presence in other social media outlets, but you may not know how or if they are linked together – or even if they are part of the same effort. To that end, I wrote this blog to describe and link to all of our social media efforts in one place.
