Cisco Live Barcelona: Keep Calm and Call Cisco Services

- February 22, 2018 - 1 Comment

Cisco Live Barcelona. Wow! It was a fantastic event, and I enjoyed talking with so many Cisco customers, partners, and colleagues from around the world. Walking the floor of the World of Solutions was an incredible showcase of what’s possible with the Internet of Things (IoT).

I wasn’t able to snag a Cisco Technical Services mug (see below), but I saw a lot of people lugging them around. However, I did have the privilege to speak to a packed audience about disruption and the new decision economy. I took the stage with our SVP of Cisco Services Joe Cozzolino to share how emerging technologies are the game-changers for technical services. And I also had some fascinating conversations in the Cisco Investments Pavilion.

It was a great week, and I returned to my hometown of Chicago energized with fresh perspectives and excitement for the future. I think it will be another big year for IoT as we continue to connect across the enterprise and beyond.

If you missed the event, or want to relive it, you can find the replays and highlights here.

Hope to see you at the next Cisco Live in Orlando, June 10-14.
