Here at Cisco we strive to align our strategy, content, and offerings to the top trends happening in the industry. To help us do this effectively, we designed something called the Portfolio Explorer.



The Portfolio Explorer divides each industry into various themes and use cases that are revisited and updated each year by our industry experts. We just finished our updates for this fiscal year, and financial services saw a substantial overhaul. We simplified our message to focus on four themes:

  1. Customer journey
  2. Modern financial worker
  3. Operational risk management
  4. Agile IT

These four themes paint a picture of the four primary areas of financial services operations. Within each theme you will find two-to-three use cases that dive deeper, explaining the business and technical application in the industry.

Over the next several weeks, we will have a blog around each of our nine financial services use cases, to better understand the top focus areas of the financial services industry.

Check out our Portfolio Explorer today and stay tuned for our upcoming use case blogs!
