Winning in the Cloud Webcast
(Original Webcast July 23, 2013)
What will the IT organization of the future look like? What skills will IT leaders need to be successful? A groundbreaking new study, “Impact of Cloud on IT Consumption Models,” answers these and many other vexing IT questions—and you can be among the first of our Cisco partners to hear its key findings. In an informative online partner webcast, Cisco will share essential results from this major cloud research initiative, which Cisco® Consulting Services (CCS) conducted in collaboration with Intel.®
The customer-focused study reveals candid feedback from more than 4,000 IT decision makers from 18 industries and nine countries—in developed and emerging markets alike—and provides a detailed analysis of cloud-driven change in enterprise and midmarket organizations and the resulting challenges for business decision makers.
Please join Scott Boyd, Cisco’s Director of Operations for Cloud and Next Generation Solutions, James Macaulay, Director, Cisco Consulting Services and Andy Noronha, Director, Cisco Consulting Services, to get a comprehensive look at the challenges customers face in today's IT landscape as well as business opportunities needed to drive innovation.
