What is Cisco IBSG? Find out more here!

July 23, 2012 - 0 Comments

Well, first of all, Cisco IBSG stands for Internet Business Solutions Group. IBSG is the premier thought-leadership group within Cisco when it comes to helping customers realize the benefits of the trends and advances in technology, networking and new business processes. Listen to one of the key IBSG leaders for Industry to find out more in the video.

The Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) is comprised of industry influencers and business strategists who have deep experience across multiple sectors and regions.  IBSG helps CXOs and public-sector leaders solve their most critical business challenges by developing strategic solutions based on business-process transformation and innovative technology.

I was fortunate enough to interview Kevin Sullivan, Director and Global Leader of the Industrial & Diversified Practice, Cisco IBSG recently and the video is part of this blog  introducing IBSG.  This Part One Cisco Thought Leadership episode asks what IBSG is and asks about the value it provides. Kevin describes how IBSG was formed and the value it provides to customers and other groups.

You can read Kevin’s latest blog here ‘Technology Innovation: Disrupt—or Be Disrupted‘ and find out more about his and Cisco’s views on how companies can gain and hold an edge in technology innovation. In an engagement with a major global manufacturer, Kevin talks about how Cisco IBSG identified three key factors in the product innovation process that companies must clearly understand and be able to orchestrate in order to be successful.

But that’s not all – to gain further insights into the ‘in vogue’ collaboration trends, look no further than Arun Saksena’s new blog about how companies across multiple industries are implementing a variety of process changes, systems, and tools to improve collaboration among their employees. As another IBSG thought leader, read his blog ‘Productivity Gains Through Culture, Visuality, and Collaboration (Part 1)’.

It’s insights like those from Kevin and Arun that sets Cisco apart. No longer just  a ‘vendor’ or ‘IT/Networking’ company, but a trusted partner for our customers, our leaders and for governments and industries around the world.

Stay tuned for more blogs from IBSG in the coming weeks.
