I am looking forward to the Grace Hopper Women in Computing Conference, Oct 14-16 2015, Houston, Texas.
From Cisco Women in Cybersecurity to extraordinary software developers and inspiring executive I invite you to join us at Cisco to invent together.
Intercloud, security, and IoE are all areas that present massive opportunity for re-invention and innovation. The need for enhanced security is real – the estimated annual cost of cybercrime to the global economy ranges from $375 billion to as much as $575 billion. By 2020, it has been predicted that an estimated 50 billion devices and objects will be connected to the Internet. Those devices will be connected 24/7/365, providing ever-increasing value. The Internet of Everything isn’t about everything. It is about developing and delivering services capable of meeting new customer demands, and unlocking new sources of revenue in the process. There is a real opportunity here to marry innovation, economic growth, and job creation.
As a CTO and evangelist for new frontiers development and engineering, I can tell you that the future of technology is exciting. The new job creation driven by those new services, will, in turn, increasingly drive the need for continuous adaptation and reinvention.
Can you imagine pushing the boundaries of what can be possible in this world at Cisco?
I believe you have every opportunity to transform our world in areas that we never deemed possible.
I personally invite you to visit us at Grace Hopper 2015.
Moreover, I invite you to join Cisco to change this world into a better place.
In the words of Antoine De Saint-Éxupéry,
“As for the future, your task is not to foresee but to enable it.”
