My personal and sincere thanks to all of our CDN members who joined us at the CDN Developer Forum at Cisco Live London this week and those who followed our adventures on Twitter (@cisco_developer) .
As you heard in the keynote by Hans Hwang (VP of Advanced Services, responsible for Cisco Developer Network, Collaboration Services Practice, and Advanced Services Strategy), the Internet of Everything will create unprecedented business opportunities for you to partner with Cisco. An ecosystem of partners is increasingly important to drive relevant business solutions to our customers around this vision.
Key areas for partner opportunities were outlined that spanned Cisco technologies, solutions and new business models! Whether it be virtualization and IT automation through the Unified Computing System (UCS) to developing innovative collaboration solutions with new Jabber and WebEx tools, enabling customers applications to tap into the intelligence of the network with Cisco’s Unified Platform, or partnering with Cisco to deliver innovative business solutions in a given industry or looking at new ways to deliver your software with Software as a Service (SaaS) acceleration as a cloud driver, there has never been greater opportunity as a CDN partner.
You are critical to delivering the business solutions our customers need and we are committed to delivering a best-in-class developer and partner program to support you. We are increasing our investment in technology and programs to provide you with education and tools for success, to drive awareness and demand for your solutions, and to help differentiate and grow your business. We hope the information we shared with you about the many technical and business enablement programs, tools, and resources will help your businesses thrive.
We enjoyed meeting you in person and following your Twitter feeds and we appreciate your dedicating your time to us. We hope you made new business contacts both at Cisco and among yourselves. In the coming days we will be posting all the content we presented. My team and I are available to you to provide additional information and answer any questions you may have as you put the resources to work for you.
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us at the CDN Developer Forum which will take place during Cisco Live US June 23-27, 2013 in Orlando, Florida.
Wishing you continued success,
Director, Cisco Developer Network
