Cisco Canada chief on 2011, plans for 2012, and the need to advance acceptance of collaboration technology
In 2011, Cisco Systems shed business units, looking to solidify around its core in the networking and communications areas amid tepid results and a sense that the networking giant had become overly complex.

Cisco Canada president Nitin Kawale joins us for the third installment of our New Year’s Podcast Series, discussing the year that was 2011, plans for 2012, and his personal drive to bring greater acceptance of communications and collaboration technologies to the Canadian business world.
