In the current difficult macro-economic scenario, managed services offer the favorable trade-off of capital plus salary cost for facilities cost, lowering operational spend. Joel Conover, Sr. Manager, Network Systems Marketing at Cisco Systems joins me to discuss options available to IT leaders to accelerate business innovation while lowering operational spend through managed services delivered by service providers harnessing the power of Cisco’s Empowered Branch solution.
