Steve Benvenuto had more information this week on Cisco’s Internet of Things (IoT) Specializations. These three new specializations help you capture your share of the $19 trillion Internet of Everything (IoE). With IoT being a key part of the IoE transition, you should definitely take advantage of these new specializations.

For the full details, check out Steve’s blog and let us know what you think!

Partner Voices

Our continuing Partner Voices series returned this week with a look at Cisco Solution Partner KEMP technologies. KEMP technologies was able to help cloud service provider Peak 10 implement a new infrastructure to match customer demand. It made for a pretty compelling story on how a partner can provide:

  • Enhanced scalability
  • 24 hour cloud-based availability
  • Reduced deployment time

If you are interested in the details you can access the full case study from the blog, and don’t forget, you can always contact me directly at dadurham@cisco.com if you have a potential Partner Voices story to tell. Read More »

Within the IoE opportunity is the Internet of Things (IoT).  While the IoE includes the connection of both people and objects, IoT refers only to the networked connection of physical objects.
