DoDIIS 2012 – A Few Closing Words
This week the best in government gathered in Denver for the 2012 Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference and we’d like to share a few themes we saw as well as excerpts from some of the conversations we had with Cisco booth visitors.
First of all, we’d like to thank everyone that stopped by our booth; we had a lot of traffic and received amazing feedback on all of the products we demoed.
Overall there was an excitement from government agencies eager to embrace new workplace trends that tap into the latent expertise hidden within their agency. After speaking to many attendees, a few conversations about our technologies stood out:
- One of our senior customers saw a demonstration of our high-definition Full Motion Video (FMV) and now wants the solution for a large number of analysts. FMV provides timely, reliable, relevant and discernible video imagery from fixed and mobile platforms to the Communities of Interest (COI).
- The Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) received a lot of very positive feedback and we were able to educate many attendees from large agencies of our capabilities. The Cisco VXI is an end-to-end systems approach that delivers the next generation virtual workspace by unifying virtual desktops, voice and video without compromising the user experience. This significant amount of interest shows that the user experience is increasing in importance in government agencies and Cisco will continue to focus efforts on ensuring our technologies not only simplify management but enhance the user experience as well.
Overall, the conference showcased our dominance in the government sector and our continued dedication to providing innovative technologies that enable governments around the world to be more efficient.
It was a very successful show and we hope to see you there next year!
