Last week’s Cisco Live US was certainly one for the books.

During the four-day conference, our healthcare team showcased six solutions that allow healthcare organizations to protect patient privacy and data security by securely managing their networks, improving operational efficiencies and providing better patient experience. We also gave a theater presentation that taught customers how to develop a strategy for a Threat-Centric security model.

Cisco Live officially kicked off on Monday with a keynote presentation from Chief Marketing Officer, Karen Walker and CEO, Chuck Robbins. In the presentation, Karen shared the importance of technology, saying, “84% of Cisco Live attendees agreed that technology is the single largest driver of change.”


Chuck also gave a nod to the importance of technology, especially in industries such as healthcare, government and education. He stressed the value of using technology for the greater good, saying, “We must leverage technology to solve the greatest challenges in our world today.”


Following the opening keynote, the World of Solutions opened, giving us the opportunity to showcase our technology to customers, industry analysts, partners and employees alike.

We learned of new launches, such as Cisco Spark integration and digital assistant Monica. Throughout these presentations, one key theme emerged – great new technological advancements are definitely on Cisco’s horizon.
