Four reasons cisco live is important to partners

QTS Realty Trust is participating in Cisco Live! for the first year, and our team couldn’t be more thrilled. Cisco has been our valuable partner for seven years and its technology is a key component of QTS’ IaaS solutions, including the QTS Federal Cloud and QTS Enterprise Cloud. As recently announced, we’re also an Intercloud Fabric provider. The Cisco Ecosystem is a strong, thriving network of best-of-breed IT providers, and Cisco Live is one of several benefits we get from being part of it. 

1. Highly educated attendees – Cisco Live attendees come to LEARN. Well, hey come to have a great time too, but there is a lot of learning! These are IT professionals who are hungry for actionable information on the technology they’re using today, and insight into tools that may be available to them in the future. In short, this audience is the crème de la crème for IT providers! Chances are an attendee will teach you a thing or two. 
2. IT decision influencers in the house – Not only are Cisco Live attendees hungry for information, they are the professionals who influence IT purchases for their organizations, and will eventually be the decision makers. Cisco Live is an opportunity to educate the educators and train the trainers. 
3. Exposure to other parts of the Cisco ecosystem – As I mentioned, the Cisco Ecosystem is a strong network of our industry peers and competitors. Events like Cisco Live are an opportunity to see our peers in action, and be inspired along the way. This access inspires us all to become better at what we do. 
4. Added value educational opportunities – The Cisco Live World of Solutions is not only a chance to exhibit and sell, but also an opportunity to dive deeper by providing hands-on demonstrations. The QTS team is looking forward to our live demonstration of moving workloads in a hybrid cloud scenario on Tuesday, June 9 at 11:15 a.m. We hope to see you there and field lots of great questions!
