Cisco Intercloud makes Strides Leading up to Partner Summit 2015

January 15, 2015 at 9:56 am PST

Welcome back from the holidays and welcome to 2015! I trust you’ve all settled back into your work routines after enjoying some much-earned time off with friends and family. Temperatures across the U.S. continue to drop, but things in our world are heating up as we kick off the New Year. In fact, Cisco Partner Summit 2015 will be here before you know it.

The end of April is just a little more than three months out and we can’t wait to see some of you in Montreal this year. Speaking of Partner Summit, it was at last year’s event where we launched what I wanted to touch on today.

I promise I’ll keep this one short, but since launching Cisco Intercloud in Las Vegas last year, we really have accomplished a great deal, and I want to be sure that you, as a member of The Cisco Partner Ecosystem, are not missing out on any opportunities. Hhere is a little recap on Cisco Intercloud from Partner Summit 2014 until now. 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 »
