Well, CiscoLive Milan 2015 is behind us…..but hopefully the energy and insights you took away from it stay with you – at least till next CiscoLive. Our attendees rated it as our most successful CiscoLive EMEAR ever……and having been to a few of them myself I’d happily agree!
I had the opportunity to speak with many attendees at the World of Solutions, both on the guided tours and also at the mobility demos. The overall impression I got from speaking with you is that you are as excited (and challenged) as we are about the dramatic changes going on in IT. The transformation of IT has moved from hype to reality – and many of you at CiscoLive are the ones being asked by your company to make these changes happen.
Now, whether you attended Live and missed a session – or you were not in Milan at all – you can still check out many of the keynotes and sessions on-line.
One of the highlights was the Enterprise Networking Trends keynote Read More »

At Cisco, as you might imagine, we talk a lot about the Internet of Things, and now about the Internet of Everything (IoE). You can find some great videos and background about IoE here, here and here. As technology continues to transform our world – from how businesses operate to how we connect with each other to how we control features in our homes – the paradigm is shifting. And it’s creating exciting opportunities for companies that are prepared to capitalize on them.
It used to be that technology was itself an outcome – people wanted an application or they wanted a robot programmed to do certain things. It was viewed simply as a tool, and one that was often operated in a siloed business unit within a company. That world, at least for companies who want to stay competitive and maximize potential, is no more.
Technology is no longer just a tool. It’s no longer a means-to-an-end nor is it a strategy that operates in isolation. As our CEO John Chambers recently predicted, “every company is going to be a technology company” (a prediction that you’ll also find echoed in many leading business journals). To respond to consumer demands and consumption models, we all must embrace technology and harness its potential to transform businesses.

Hello, retailers everywhere! My name is Dianne Lamendola, and I am a senior retail practice advisor here at Cisco. My role is to work closely with store operators and merchants to help understand your business and how technology can help you reach critical goals.
I hope you have been following our three-part series of one-hour webcasts that Cisco has been hosting this year on retail analytics. In the store, online, and across data sources, retailers have been increasingly focused on how to gather and analyze the metrics that help provide insights to run a tighter operation and provide a more exciting experience for your shoppers.
On Oct. 22, we’ll wrap up this series with a session on “Technology that Gets Down to Business: Develop Your Action Plan for Retail Analytics Success.” Held at 10:00-11:00 am PT/1:00-2:00 pm ET, this candid discussion lets you learn how to:
- Implement innovative retail analytics technologies
- Drive added value from traditional and new data sources
- Deploy mobility, wireless, video cameras, sensors, and services to jumpstart your action plan
Register today! By registering, you will also earn a free introductory analytics enablement meeting and additional tools to help you think more about your program.
While it’s not necessary to attend the previous sessions to join us, please feel free to review the recordings of our prior events:
- Part I: Understanding the Basics of Setting Up Your In-Store Analytics Program – Recording
- Part II: Case Studies of Analytics Programs in Real-World Stores – Recording
We welcome all retailers, including IT staffers, who want to know more about how analytics fit into and enhance your store environment.
I’ll see you there!
