I have had a great time in San Diego this week for Cisco Live US. I kicked off this week with a look at the Solution Partner Forum from Sunday. I also pointed out a dew of the things to look for throughout the week. I hope that helped you plan your week here in San Diego or at least follow along more easily from afar.

On Tuesday, Al Jacobellis gave you some insight on just how the security announcement this week affects Cisco Partners. If you did not yet read Al’s blog, be sure to check it out. He does a great job of showing you how our partner incentive programs can help you take advantage in the marketplace.

Edison Peres also had a great post this week on how application developers are completing the Intercloud puzzle here at Cisco. Let us know what you think of Edison’s blog, and join us in welcoming the new partners to Cisco Intercloud.

Finally, Rick Snyder wrapped up Cisco Live with his thoughts on the show and a look at how the Cisco Partner Ecosystem supports these Cisco events.

While I am happy to be home today, I already miss the energy and excitement from Cisco Live. It’s great to meet so many customers and partners who are putting our business outcomes in place every day. Read More »
