Off the Top
There are huge opportunities for growth in the mid-market and Cisco wants to help partners address that market. In fact, our research indicates the total addressable market for technology in mid-market is $25 billion and for services it’s $30 billion by the year 2016.
This is just some of the information that Bruce Klein brought you this week in his blog “Accelerating Our Mutual Success in the Mid-Market.” Even more exciting was the announcement of the consolidation of the Partner Led and Global Virtual Sales teams under the leadership of John Donovan.
Be sure to read Bruce’s blog to get up to speed on Cisco’s mid-market growth strategy.
