The Situation

IT leaders are listening to their peers and partners in greater numbers. They are sharing their operational experiences and rating their chosen vendors’ technologies on public forums. IT leaders are particularly looking for feedback on network automation technologies and deployment journeys to deliver on business resiliency and business agility needs.

Simply put, enterprises are looking for a vendor that provides ease of integration and deployment, proactive service and support, operational enablement, along with products that can easily upgrade within the existing enterprise.

Why It Matters

The latest Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Data Center and Cloud Networking report, shows that Cisco received “2020 Customers’ Choice” recognition with the highest numbers of reviews and over 90 percent of customers providing reviews stating they would recommend Cisco Data Center and Cloud Networking products to their peers. We want to thank our partners for leading with Cisco and working alongside us to keep solving challenges for our customers.
