Marketing Communications Manager

Ali Amagasu is not a software developer. Or system administrator. She's an enthusiastic marketer who knows just enough about technology to help the other less-technical citizens of the business world understand the value and implications of emerging products and solutions in the cloud and networking arenas.

Before coming to Cisco she worked in marketing communications for a number of Silicon Valley's largest and most successful companies, and served as a one-woman marketing department for a single, very special startup.

All of her opinions should be taken with an enormous wedge of salt.
