Cisco Partner Summit 2016 Day 2: Alignment

March 2, 2016 - 1 Comment

Technology Strategy

On the main stage, the focus was on Cisco’s technology vision, strategy, and innovation. CTO Zorawar Biri Singh underscored how the digitization journey is about people and culture – powered by IT. Cisco also announced its new Digital Network Architecture, an open, extensible and software driven approach to networking for digital business. Addressing policies throughout the enterprise network, from branch to core, Cisco DNA will simplify customers’ transitions to digital.

Let’s see what our partners had to say about Day 2.


There was one common theme today: alignment. And how it drives the influence the digital network will have on broader Cisco architectures, including security, next-generation data center, SDN, cloud, and application level. The executive team committed to aligning across the business, as well as its accelerated pace to help partners win in today’s competitive marketplace.

  1. Get Your Kicks near Route 66. We could all say San Diego was fantastic, but the proof is in the video when your partners relay their energy and excitement. This week my partners confirmed Cisco's vision, product launches and strategy. Having more hands and heads selling is a sales best practice. Do watch the keynote with a partner; plan a pursuit and trust in your sales processes. See you at the winner's circle.
