During the 17th annual Cisco Partner Summit 2013, company executives put the spotlight on three key topics for partners
  1. Opportunities in the midmarket 
  2. The importance in the cloud 
  3. The imperative to begin transitioning to a "hybrid IT" business model today 
In reference to point #3, what do you think this hybrid IT business model that they speak of will look like?

    They will tell you it's Cisco InterCloud, which is Cisco technology on-prem and Cisco-enabled Cloud SPs, all linked together, all running Cisco technology on both ends.

Which type of BPM vendor do you prefer?

CFOs are turning to business process management (BPM) tools to ensure their departments are efficient, transparent and compliant. When it comes to acquiring BPM tools, there are two types of vendors according to Clay Richardson, senior analyst at Forrester Research. “…some vendors provide interfaces to systems of record, such as SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Siebel that contain the data, he said. "Those systems are designed more for record entry, much like a database. They're not designed for human engagement…" vs “…other vendors of BPM tools are focusing more on systems of engagement where the aim is to deliver favorable work experiences while allowing people to get tasks done more quickly. With these vendors, "it's more about the user interface design and task design than the process model…" Which of these two approaches to BPM tools do you believe is more successful?
