The New Era Of Cisco
Cisco Systems is striving to break new ground in 2016 through a slew of initiatives around cloud, services, application developers and even its bread-and-butter switching lines.
Many of the initiatives are geared around its new Digital Network Architecture based on automation, virtualization, analytics, managed services and open APIs delivered within the Cisco One software suite. The San Jose, Calif.-based networking giant is pushing channel partners to enter new markets, like hyper-convergence, and create larger portfolios around collaboration and application development.
The technology initiatives will drive partner profitability, Cisco said, by helping customers transition into the digital age by jump-starting refreshes and offering more holistic architectures while providing a plethora of professional services.
