 November 6th Auxiliary Session- Smart, Sustainable Workspaces with Secure Networking

How we work has changed forever. For us to be successful in this transformation, greater collaboration between Real Estate, HR, and IT decision-makers is needed to ensure space is a platform to realize the company’s enterprise goals. This session will provide clear examples of how Cisco is approaching our real estate strategy (spoiler alert: it’s not about real estate), including the data and outcomes we are now seeing. We will also provide you with best practices for you to consider within your organization and your customers around the following areas:

  • How the next era of convergence will come in the form of energy and sensor networking.
  • The importance of accessing new lines of business, including real estate, facilities, HR, and ESG leaders, as a catalyst for transformation and access to new wallets.
  • How a technology lead approaches the design and construction process reduces embodied carbon and lowers energy costs, accelerating your customer’s net zero journey.
  • How to leverage data aggregated in your customer’s environment with the Cisco Spaces platform, which guides them in right-sizing their real estate portfolio to attract and retain talent.

Hybrid Work Partner Enablement Resources

There are a few exciting new resources that will be available to partners starting at Partner Summit. See below for more information on the content available to support you and your customers in your hybrid work journey.

  • Cisco Partner Journeys – Re-imagine Workspaces with Hybrid Work
    • Cisco Partner Journeys is an interactive experience that guides you through Cisco tools, resources, and processes to help you achieve outcomes faster. At Cisco Partner Summit, we are launching a journey specific to Hybrid Work to help you step through this complexity and help you access enablement based from three different angles:
      • Customer personas & level hybrid work investment
      • Customer outcomes
      • Technology – EN, Collab, and Cisco Spaces
  • Re-Imagining Workspaces with Hybrid Work on SalesConnect
    • We’ve launched a new page for Partners on SalesConnect, Re-Imagining Workspaces with Hybrid Work. This page will serve as your source of truth for content related to Hybrid Work programs, incentives, training, updates, and more. Please bookmark this page and check back often for the most updated content and resources.

See You Soon!

As we delve deeper into these topics at Cisco Partner Summit, you’ll gain valuable insights into the future of Hybrid Work and how Cisco is leading the way in Re-imagining Workspaces. We can’t wait to see you there!
