Cisco Live 2017 recently commenced in Las Vegas, where 28,000 IT professionals from around the world gathered for the 28th annual event.
The program featured keynote speakers from the world’s leader in digital networking – Cisco Systems – other technology leaders and a surprise appearance from Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Cisco along with complementary technology companies crowd the world of solutions space, and technical engineers attend certification-based training while networking with one another to discuss challenges and solutions.
The event lays a road map for technologies coming to our businesses and homes in the future. This is exciting and scary. Exciting to see advances in telemedicine, smart buildings and ultra portable communications for emergencies delivered by Cisco’s global emergency response team. Scary because the digital world has many users intent on stealing our identities and our money. Many of the solutions were in the area of IT security.
There was a positive vibe in the air, one that you will find at local events hosted by TechPoint and Verge. As much fun as it was to attend Cisco Live in Las Vegas, it is time for Indy to host Cisco Live.
Future columns will provide more details about solutions that were showcased.
