Cisco Partner Weekly Rewind – April 10, 2015
Each week, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco Partner Ecosystem news and stories, as well as point you to important, Cisco-related partner content you may have missed along the way. Here’s what you might have missed this week:
Off the Top
We are just a tad more than two weeks away from Cisco Marketing Velocity 2015 and Cisco Partner Summit 2015. With that in mind, this week on the Partner Blog was all about the upcoming events.
Sherri Liebo gave us a preview of Marketing Velocity on Tuesday. She gave us all a quick look at what to expect in Montreal on Monday, April 27, including a peek at the agenda. Take a look at Sherri’s blog and see just why she’s so excited that Marketing Velocity is being held in conjunction with Partner Summit this year.
Bruce Klein stopped by yesterday to post his preview of Partner Summit and to talk a bit about the progress Cisco has made with the Cisco Partner Ecosystem.
He’s not the only one talking about Cisco and its partners this week either. Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research posted his own blog this week called How Cisco keeps channel partners out in front of market trends where he talks about how Cisco has created such loyalty amongst its partners.
Both are great reads and will give you a sense of just what to expect at Cisco Partner Summit 2015. Let us know what you think in the comments section!
Exploring Virtual Partner Summit
I posted a blog early in the week about Cisco Virtual Partner Summit (VPS). VPS is the perfect way to keep up with what’s going on throughout the week in Montreal, even if you are not physically there. My VPS preview blog provides screenshots and a quick walkthrough of what you can do in VPS, and what you can expect to see.
VPS is a valuable tool that you should take advantage of if you’re not going to be in Canada for the events. Take a look and let me know what you think.
