Each week, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco Partner Ecosystem news and stories, as well as point you to important, Cisco-related partner content you may have missed along the way. Here’s what you might have missed this week:
Off the Top
I officially kicked off the Cisco Partner Marketing Velocity and Cisco Partner Summit 2015 season this week. The two events, combined this year in Montreal, Canada, are in the last week of April. With exactly one month to go until we kick off the events up north, be sure to follow the Cisco Partner Blog for more information leading up to this year’s Marketing Velocity and Partner Summit events.
CRN 5 Star Winner
Cisco was recognized by CRN this week as a 5-star winner for its Channel Partner Program and for its Solution Partner Program. These wins will be featured in the CRN Partner Program Guide, which is an annual directory and definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through an IT channel.
Listen Your Way to the Win

Well here we are. The last Partner Weekly Rewind before Cisco Partner Summit. I’ll be hopping on a plane to Vegas tomorrow and when I touchdown, I’ll be executing against all the planning that’s occurred for months now. I can’t wait to meet many of you this year, and don’t forget, if you are not going to be in Las Vegas this year, there is still time to get registered for Virtual Partner Summit (VPS).
Also, here’s one quick note about the Partner Weekly Rewind blog. Since Partner Summit is next week, there will not be a Partner Weekly Rewind blog on March 28 or on April 4. Instead, we will have Partner Summit content for next Friday and on April 4, we will wrap up our Partner Summit coverage with an overall recap blog. The regular Partner Weekly Rewind will return on April 11. Read More »

Cisco Partner Summit is only days away, and if you aren’t attending the live event in Las Vegas, there’s still time to register for Cisco Virtual Partner Summit (VPS). You will be joining thousands of Cisco partners from around the globe for three days of Cisco Partner Summit keynotes, executive chats, and breakout sessions on business-critical topics.
So what’s in store for VPS this year? When you enter VPS, you will see a range of options and tabs that will allow you not only to register for sessions, but also review speaker and related information for these sessions, VPS Dialog information, and get updates on Business Transformation Sessions.
You’ll be able to view the live keynote presentations happening from the main stage in Las Vegas (replays will be available until April 28), and also participate in breakout sessions targeting different technology segments, business transformation strategies, and market opportunities specific to each region and presented in local times and languages.
With so much going on that week, you’ll need a way to keep track. Check out the Sessions tab > My Agenda to access all of the sessions you registered for. Read More »
