Every Friday, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco partner news and stories of the week, as well as point you to important Cisco-related content you may have missed along the way. Let’s have it.

Off The Top

Cisco CEO John Chambers discussed Cisco’s participation in the White House IT Training and Certification Program, a federal initiative intended to help U.S. military veterans find jobs in IT. A number of media outlets from all over the country highlighted Cisco’s efforts alongside those of other well-known IT companies; check out stories in The Washington Post, The Examiner, Network World, Nextgov and American Forces Press Service, as well as a particularly partner-centric look from CRN.

Partners and the IoE Economy

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is top of mind here at Cisco, and the conversations we’re having with both partners and customers about the potential of smarter network connections and the productivity gains they create is only beginning.

In case you missed it, we asked Carlos Dominguez, Cisco SVP, esteemed tech evangelist and industry speaker, to drill down a bit on the promise IoE holds for partners and how the opportunity IoE provides will fundamentally change partner business models in the future.
