At the end of the day, technology is at its best when it’s helping people – empowering them to accomplish their goals. Whether that’s members of my team envisioning new products or supporting our current ones – or customers doing more with less and being smarter in their business – that’s when I feel that we’ve done our job here at Cisco.

So anytime I get the chance to see first-hand how our technologies are improving their lives, I leap. This time I traveled to the University of North Carolina – Charlotte (UNCC) to see one of our newest products – Tetration – in action.

It’s a great example of bringing value to the front lines – helping their IT organization better deliver services to the thousands of UNCC students and keeping their data center network safer.

To learn more about UNC-Charlotte’s implementation, watch Cisco Goes Back to School With Tetration where Steve Saunders from Light Reading interviews me and Jesse Beauman, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enterprise Infrastructure, UNC-Charlotte.
