Cisco says there is a profit opportunity for its partners in the way that computing is changing.
With that in mind, the company is preparing to put on a Cisco Virtual Partner Summit 2011 from March 1st to March 3rd which aims to give channel partners “the edge” when it comes to understanding, selling, and delivering key technologies that are driving businesses forward.
“Solution providers see a huge opportunity in the next 12 months to sell IT solutions to customers who recognise the cost-saving value of technology,” the company says. “According to research conducted by the Institute for Partner Education & Development (IPED), 2011 will be a growth year for the channel.”
The Cisco Virtual Partner Summit is being pitched as the “ideal venue” to learn, make connections, and share ideas on how to create mutual customer impact.
Highlights will include live streaming video of keynote presentations from Cisco executives, breakout sessions that will focus on architectures and solutions and video exec chats and other opportunities for social media interaction.
More information will be released nearer the date.
