Cisco Partner Event: Industrial Intelligence for Manufacturers

As part of the Manufacturing Impact Series, here’s a reminder not to miss the Industrial Intelligence for Manufacturers Webinar set for Thursday 16th June, 2011. It’s essential viewing and listening if you’re a Cisco resale or systems integration partner, or a partner looking to build a Manufacturing Practice and provide solutions to Manufacturing Industry Customer Careabouts.

Industrial Intelligence is a multi-billion dollar opportunity growing at approximately 20% per year over the next five years. Much of the growth is driven by the proliferation of smart devices globally, and Cisco partners have a unique opportunity to provide the technology to connect an estimated trillion devices by 2020. In this “how to” workshop, the speakers will  introduce the Cisco Industrial Intelligence for Manufacturers market opportunity, target customers, solution portfolio, case studies, and sales tools to help partners succeed.

Social Media Spotlight: Top 10 Tips for Setting Up the Perfect Video




So, we’ve covered how to get started in social media. We’ve offered you blogging tips and a video walking you through how to craft a great blog entry.
