Lead Cloud Disruption and Adoption. We’re with You

We have another partner blogger debut this week as Christian Treille joined us to discuss the recently launched Cisco Business Cloud Advisor – a framework to help customers take actionable cloud adoption plans.

Now we’ve made it available for partners.

Given the advantage this tool can provide our partners, I’m not surprised the Director of Cloud and Managed Services, Partner Enablement, decided to make this his first topic as a partner blogger. Be sure to read his post to see how cisco partners and their customers can benefit.

CRN – 100 People You Don’t Know But Should

I always love CRN’s annual tribute to the “behind-the-scenes channel players worthy of  attention.” For the 2015 edition, Cisco had three of their very own featured! Join me in congratulating Bridget Bisnette, Sr. Director, Partner Marketing; Scott Herron, Sr. Director, Global Customer Success; and Peder Ulander, VP, Cloud and Managed Services Partner organization.

CRN sums up the recognition as follows: “The technology industry is filled with rock stars, high-profile executives who stand in the spotlight at partner conferences and technology events to present the world with the industry’s latest achievements. But delivering these breakthroughs to the world is hardly a one-man show and behind these executives stand the unsung heroes, the shining stars on vendors’ channel management teams.”

Again, we welcome you to take a moment to congratulate Bridget, Scott and Peder for being recognized for all of their hard work.

Wendy Bahr Sits Down with Channel World India

 Wendy BahrCisco’s SVP of the Global Partner Organization, Wendy Bahr, took a moment on her recent trip to India to chat with Yogesh Gupta of Channel World India.

As you can imagine, she’s been quite busy during the first 2.5 months in her new role. This interview is a great way to get you up to speed on what she’s been focused on, her channel and partner priorities, and lots more. I highly encourage you to check it out.

As always, let us know what you think of the blog. Feedback from partners, especially around partner programs, is vital for Cisco to keep producing programs that work for all of us.
