We Know What Cisco Partners Have Been Doing this Summer

August 19, 2011 - 0 Comments

Guess what, partners: We’ve been reading your blogs, perusing your Facebook pages, and scanning your Twitter feeds to find out what you’ve been up to this summer. (Everything we saw was rated G, don’t worry!)

So what have we found? We’ve discovered that many of you are doing some really cool things. For instance, some of you have scored really interesting customer wins, while others have snagged celebrities to star in your ads, or you’re working on raising money for charity. We unearthed so many diverse and interesting tidbits that we’ve decided that periodically here on the blog we’ll showcase the cool stuff that our partners are up to. Here’s a roundup of what just some of you are doing.

Nexus IS posted a video on their Facebook page about their customer win with Global Cash Access (GCA). (We wrote about their win here on the blog, too.) The video features interviews with GCA’s CEO and VP of IT discussing how Nexus impacted and improved their business.

Meanwhile, Force 3 posted a news roundup video on their Facebook page called Great News, which highlights recent goings-on at the company. Great work, guys!

Force 3 also wrote on their blog about how they snagged competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut to star in one of their commercials. This is a guy who can eat 68 hot dogs in one sitting. But bet he can’t install UCS!

Dimension Data has put together a team to participate in a bike race to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. In September the Dimension Data team of employees, friends and family will ride 75 to 150 miles across New Jersey.

Logicalis has launched a series on their blog called Hype or Ripe, in which they introduce a topic, pose a question, and then ask readers to vote on whether it’s Hype or Ripe. Recent questions include: Is Fear of Change Keeping IT Leaders from the Cloud, and Is Shared Services the Hot Item this Season.

Lastly, our friends over at MTM Technologies’ Virtual Desktop Alliance have been posting The Virtual Desktop Daily to their Facebook page. Paper.li, the site that generates the “daily newspaper,” enables Virtual Desktop Alliance to gather links that they have shared and turn them into a kind of social newspaper, complete with different sections for different topics. Pretty cool use of social media!

So that’s just a sampling—we know that there are many more partners out there doing interesting stuff. What have you been up to this summer? Please drop us a line in the comments—we’d love to feature you here on the blog!
