Cisco Mobility Express Solution Helps Partners Reach Small and Medium-sized Businesses

We always love when we can provide a new way to accelerate business for partners. And that’s just what the recently launched Cisco Mobility Express solution does.

Partner Voices: The Power of 3: Cisco, EMC, and VCE

Senior Director of Global Strategic Partner Sales, Chris Panzeca, made his blogging debut on Friday morning when he stopped by to talk about the great relationship these technology leaders have.

He also highlighted a couple of success stories that Cisco, EMC and VCE  have recently teamed-up on to help shared customers.  Be sure to check his post out.

Partner Voices: The Power of 3: Cisco, EMC, and VCE

There’s nothing like the energy of more than 25,000 people in San Francisco talking technology over the course of three days, like VMWorld 2015. And now that I’ve had a couple of weeks to let the dust settle and reflect back, it’s the successful relationships with our partners that remains top of mind and defines Cisco’s success.

For me, the focus on our partnerships with EMC and VCE once again demonstrated that both customers and partners are excited about not only our past successes, but more importantly, where we are going and the work we’ll be doing together in the future.

Fifteen years and more than 70,000 mutual customers later, EMC and Cisco remain global technology leaders because of our commitment to customers, leading technology, and support. And if traffic in the Cisco booth at VMworld is any indication, it’s very clear there’s still a buzz.

Add VCE to the mix, whose Vblock with Cisco ACI continues to help customers, and the result is a ‘Power of 3” providing leading Storage (EMC), Networking (Cisco) and Converged Infrastructure (VCE) solutions.

Raja Sundaram was back this week with a great look at how industry OEMs and tech partners work together to deliver business outcomes for customers. We all know that customers are becoming more and more focused on developing the business outcomes that make them successful.

In his blog, Raja does an artful job of explaining how partnering with OEMs and tech partners provide incredible opportunities in the market.

Partner Voices

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Geoff Webb, Senior Director, Solution Strategy for NetIQ and he gave me some great insight into the Internet of Everything (IoE). As part of our ongoing Partner Voices series, I of course passed that information along to you. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments section. Read More »

Partner Voices: Identity, Security and the Internet of Everything

As I often do with our Cisco Partner Voices blogs, this week’s entry is really more about me getting out of the way and letting the partner tell the story. I mean, after all, that’s what this whole series is about, right?

This week, I had the opportunity to hear from Geoff Webb (@GeoffvWebb), Senior Director, Solution Strategy for NetIQ. Geoff had some thoughts on the Internet of Everything (IoE) that are definitely worth sharing with the Cisco Partner Ecosystem.

In Geoff’s words, the Internet of Everything holds incredible promise – the opportunity to completely redefine how we interact with technology, the way we use information, even the way we perceive the very world around us.  We’re going to be surrounded, 24/7, by smart devices that do everything from help us drive our cars more safely and monitor crop yields across the world to double checking that we turned the oven off before we left home, even run an airliner’s engines at peak efficiency as it flies around the world.

These smart tools – whether it’s wearable, drivable, sitting in our homes and/or in our bodies – are going to change absolutely every aspect of the way we think about, and use, information and technology.  Yet at the same time, this is going to make new demands on the way we plan for security and privacy.  And, the key to building the new, safe and secure IoE is going to be a deep understanding of a very old concept: that of “identity.” Read More »
