How time flies! It seems like the quarters come and go in a blink of an eye. Thank you all for your work this past quarter and for how hard you pushed to finish strong. Over the coming weeks we will review our combined performance and share our findings. I look forward to meeting with you and celebrating our united wins together.

Cisco IoT Connect – February 25, 2021

Speaking of wins. Cisco’s first ever global, digital partner conference for IoT on February 25, 2021 will be a unique digital conference to educate, enable, energize, and empower the IoT eco-system. This free event invites you and your partners into Cisco’s showcase for our IoT vision for the future and how we’ll be pushing the boundaries of what is possible for your customers, while helping you and your partners build a profitable IoT practice.

On top of hearing from Oliver Tuszik, SVP of Cisco Global Partner Organization, you’ll also get to hear from other Cisco Leadership like Dave Wilson, VP or Global IoT Sales, and Todd Nightingale, SVP/GM of Enterprise Networking and Cloud. From a regional perspective, I will share my perspective on how you in the Americas can take hold of the IoT opportunity.

Fueling Partner Success in IoT

We often speak of Fueling Partner Success, but it stems farther than that. We want you to find opportunities to help more partners leverage and invest in IoT practice.

So, how do you do that? Well, we must understand the market opportunity and lean into those specific resilient verticals. With the pandemic still raging around us, there’s never been a more ideal time for you and your partners to help customers accelerate digitization efforts.

Although there are still many business challenges, the tools to fuel partner success are available. Whether you are helping your partners gain new certifications, aiding in marketing execution, providing credit options, or offering pre-sales support, you are enabling pipeline growth for your partners.

I would love to spend more time sharing the unique IoT opportunity with you at the upcoming Cisco IoT Connect conference.

Registration opens on February 3, 2021
