Cisco brings its partners together for the second time this year next week in San Francisco, as it moves its annual Partner Summit from its previous timeframe in the spring of each year, to its new timeframe in the fall.
It’s a good time to have a twice-a-year check-in, as CEO Chuck Robbins accelerates the company’s move towards software and subscriptions, boosts the importance of security in its business, and amplifies the message around business transformation.
To help get partners ready for next week, Cisco Canada channel chief Mark Collins joins us on this edition of the podcast to offer a preview. What are Cisco’s priorities and goals for its just-begun fiscal year? What can partners expect at Partner Summit? How many Canadian partners will be in the house? What are Collins’ thoughts on priorities and focus heading into 2017?
Collins addresses all this and more, in this edition of the podcast.
