Innovation without Boundaries
Posted on behalf of Shashi Kiran, Senior Manager in the Network Systems group at CiscoAny company, no matter how big it grows, needs to be humble enough to constantly seek and nurture new ideas both from within and outside – to stay nimble, to remain competitive and to deliver continued value to its customers, partners and employees. Cisco is no exception. As we build upon our traditional areas of expertise, and embrace new ones – it is our constant endeavor to collaborate and learn, and make the vision of the Human Network Effect a reality. For the first time in our company history, or at least as far back as we can recall, we’re launching an exciting worldwide contest targeted towards application developers, called the Cisco”Think Inside The Box” Developer Contest. It is open to individuals or teams of up to three people, over the age of 18. Up to US$100,000 in total prize money will be awarded to three winning teams. It is a two phased contest that we expect to last at least through May 2009. For more details on the contest, please visit the official contest website. This flash provides a quick preview of the contest coming from the dynamic duo and Cisco TechWise TV hosts Robb Boyd and Jimmy Ray Purser.Join us on the journey:Participate in the contest.
