If you’re a Cisco Services partner, then I hope to see you at Cisco Live in Orlando!

Cisco Live has evolved into a conference with programs designed to connect our growing community of ecosystem partners with our Cisco Services partners. Whether you have an existing services practice or are looking to build one, Cisco Services is committed to accelerating your growth. As you help customers reach their goals, we help you reach yours.

Here are a few sessions that I think you’ll find especially interesting if your customers are primarily small and medium-sized businesses. By attending these sessions, you will learn about the new capabilities in Business Critical Services around analytics, automation, compliance, and security that you can leverage to deliver better business outcomes for your customers.

  1. First, I recommend joining Rob Weismantel for his theater session titled, “Build Your Services Portfolio with Cisco Services as the Foundation.” Sure, I may be a little biased because Rob is a senior leader on my team. However, he is also one of the very best at explaining how Partners can use Cisco Services capabilities to build a solid portfolio that will differentiate your business from the competition.
  2. Next, you’ll want to experience the Critical Insights demo. The title says it all, “Unlock the Power of Data.” After seeing the demo, you will have all the information you need to show customers how they can get the most value out of their network with real-time data.
  3. Security is Everything – Shield Yourself with Incident Response and Business Critical Service,” is definitely another session I’d encourage you to attend. Security is top of mind with your customers and Cisco is leading the cybersecurity charge. In this session, you will learn from real case studies showcasing how organizations are working with Cisco to protect and manage their network.

With over 1,000 technical and business sessions available, Cisco Live is your best opportunity to learn, explore, connect, and be inspired by what is possible when we when we imagine the future with Intuitive IT.

With all this new information, you may have questions or suggestions on how Cisco innovations can help you grow your services business. I would love to listen and learn about your business strategy, and then talk about how we can work together to increase value for your customers. If you’d like to schedule a one-on-one meeting, just ask your Partner Account Manager or tweet at me directly @CaralynBrace.

Register today if you haven’t already, and get ready to Imagine Intuitive.

See you in Orlando!
