Cisco Partner Plus and the Cisco Power Ecosystem

December 17, 2014 at 7:30 am PST

As I mentioned in my last blog on The Cisco Partner Ecosystem in the midmarket, I wanted to take just a bit of your time in December to give you a little expanded information on the Cisco Partner Plus Program. As we near the holidays and we will all be taking some much needed time to relax with friends and family, know that you are a vital part of The Cisco Partner Ecosystem and this is another way that Cisco can really help you win in the midmarket space.

Just like I said last month, I cannot stress enough that it’s not just “big business” that powers the economic engine globally. The midmarket space has increasing IT demands and even more limited resources than their enterprise siblings. We offer a great deal of help to Cisco partners in the midmarket space, but the Partner Plus Program helps you:

  • Prepare, build and expand
  • Generate demand and increase sales
  • Enjoy your success through rewards and incentives

We want you to be a successful part of The Cisco Partner Ecosystem and the Cisco Partner Plus Program helps ensure you get the support you need from us in order to succeed. Partner Plus offers increasing levels of benefits as you move from Partner Plus Aspire to Partner Plus Prestige and all the way up to Partner Plus Elite. Read More »

Cisco Partner Ecosystem in the Midmarket

November 13, 2014 at 7:30 am PST

When you hear the name Cisco, what comes to mind? A pretty safe bet is that you think “enterprise networking leader.” Of course, we want you to always think of us in those terms, because it’s true. However, I wanted to be sure our partners that operate in the midmarket space are recognized, because you are vital to the Cisco Partner Ecosystem.

It’s not just “big business” that powers the economic engine globally, and that is especially true here in North America. The midmarket space has increasing IT demands and even more limited resources than their enterprise siblings. Business is business, and those midsize companies are looking to grow their customer base, hire the best employees and simultaneously reduce their IT costs. Integrating solutions that provide those outcomes to the midmarket is where Cisco partners have enormous opportunities.

We aim to back you up on those opportunities and make sure you have everything you need at your disposal for success in this space. In fact, we have a wealth of information for our partners in the midmarket space in our Midsize Business Solutions area for partners. Read More »
