As Cisco and our partners continue on our transformation to delivering business outcomes and experiences to our customers, we continue to streamline that path as much as possible. Ensuring our partners are successful is the most important work we do. We’ve created various tools, programs, content, and websites not only to help our partners perform, but also transform their practices at any stage of their business journey. Often those assets, though, are scattered throughout Cisco’s partner tools and resources making it challenging, and time consuming, to locate, retrieve, connect, and properly utilize them.
Knowing where to start and what to utilize next can make all the difference, so Cisco has launched a revolutionary new platform specifically designed to simplify your partner journey by guiding you through the resources, tools, and processes available.
Introducing Cisco Partner Journeys
Integrated into our partner landing page as of today, Cisco Partner Journeys consolidates content, resources, tools, and processes across Cisco with detailed instructions on how to take full advantage of everything Cisco has to offer. Five journeys are available in the initial launch:
