The announcement reinforces Cisco’s and IBM’s commitment to deliver integrated energy management solutions that help customers effectively manage energy consumption and costs across their entire infrastructure.Cisco is proud to count IBM among the companies we are engaging with in this space. More to come and more advanced solutions for our customers in the future…
