Hello from Boston! We’re sad to be wrapping up the last day of Cisco Partner Summit 2013 today, but we’re thankful for the experiences we’ve shared and the insights we’ve gained over the past few days. For those of you not able to attend, we put together a short summary of yesterday’s activities:
- Padmasree Warrior, Cisco’s Chief Strategy and Technology Officer, discussed how Cisco is developing business strategies around their concept of the Internet of Everything. Whereas past stages of the Internet have been focused on e-commerce and social experiences, this new era looks to be connecting people with many diverse forms of data, processes and things. This means that partnerships will be even more important than in the past, as success in the technology sector will require having a role in each of these different ecosystems.
- Besides the speakers, we also were able to attend a few Business Transformation Sessions on Cisco’s different focus areas, like cloud and SDN. We also took part in the American region party, and had an opportunity to network with the Cisco team.
