Cisco Live 2019: An EMEA Enterprise Networking Perspective
This IDC Market Note summarizes key takeaways during Cisco Live, held June 9 to 13, 2019, in San Diego, California. The vendor updated analysts on how it is transforming its culture, technology portfolio, and customer and partner engagement models to "perform and transform" in the new era of virtualized networks. IDC is impressed by the way that Cisco is embracing network transformation and executing on immediate opportunities — such as SD-WAN — while undergoing extensive business transformation at the same time. However, to remain successful in EMEA, Cisco needs to be careful to take its partners with it on its transformation journey.
