Armed with my Flip Camera, I had a chance to catch up today with Padmasree Warrior, Cisco’s Chief Technology Officer. This is her first trip to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
Padma talks about her experiences in the technology tract, as well as being a little star struck by WEF attendees. Padma notes that cloud computing is a hot topic at this year’s event, and trend Cisco is well positioned to lead.
It’s Thanksgiving time in United States—on this holiday, we remember the things for which we are grateful, while also digging in to a hearty meal of roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and lots of side dishes (or just nosh on the side dishes, like me—I’m vegetarian.)
I’m sure many would give thanks for a warm house, family, friends, our health, a job. Of course, at Cisco, we also give thanks for the many people who support what we do every day. And that goes especially to you, our partners: Thank you for your continued commitment to Cisco.
So while I take a few days off to give thanks and enjoy a meal with my family and friends, I wanted to share a few tools and sites that will help you navigate Cisco’s offerings for partners.
While the list is long, we want to be sure that you know that there are multiple sources of information to help you in your everyday work with Cisco. And don’t worry, you won’t be tested.
It is often said that the only constant is change. Cisco is no different. We know that innovation and change are the cornerstones to Cisco’s continued success.
We are excited to announce that our Chief Technical Officer, Padmasree Warrior, will add the duties of being SVP/GM of our Enterprise, Commercial and Small Business Development Group. This is the heart of Cisco’s business and we are fortunate to have the talent of an (ahem) warrior take over this industry leading team of over 10,000 world-class engineering talent.
Warrior joined Cisco in 2007 as CTO reporting to Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers and has quickly established herself as a technology visionary in areas such as cloud computing, mobility, the future of Internet technology and more.
