In this video from the Cisco Partner Summit 2009 in Boston, SearchNetworkingChannel.com Associate Editor Elaine Hom provides an overview of the morning keynote by Keith Goodwin, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Channels.
Goodwin announced enhancements to Cisco’s partner program, including a $2 billion increase in credit capacity and that their financing program was being extended from 60 to 90 days. Notably, partners also will no longer need their own network operations centers in order to participate. Cisco will also be providing Flip cameras to all partners attending the conference as part of the company’s growing emphasis of video used for collaboration. Andrew Sage, VP, Small Business Sales, joined Goodwin and demonstrated video’s “immediacy and relevancy” with a sample customer testimonial.
