IBM InterConnect 2017 is in Las Vegas next week and Cisco is excited to be a gold sponsor for the event.

Today’s dynamic market puts tremendous pressures on IT to adapt operations to the latest business initiatives – whether it is an effort to reduce costs, invest in new projects, or improve efficiency. At the center of each of these business initiatives sit applications and data. Applications and data are key in delivering value to the business and the ability to deploy applications and access data in the fastest, most flexible manner possible is becoming critical to success. At IBM InterConnect 2017, Cisco and IBM will highlight our recently announced VersaStack solutions to include hybrid cloud capabilities, infrastructure automation, and software defined storage technologies.

The highlight of our presence will be Cisco’s Liz Centoni, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Computing Systems, joining IBM’s Ed Walsh during his session on March 22nd.  There will also be additional opportunities for customers and partners to engage with the Cisco team throughout the week. We are participating in several breakout sessions and booth demos. The comprehensive list of speaking sessions demos can be viewed here.

I urge you to visit Cisco booth 238 to learn about the latest VersaStack solutions and discuss your organization’s data center and cloud objectives with Cisco subject matter experts.

IBM InterConnect 2017 will be a great event – I hope to see you there.
