In a predictably unpredictable world, IT leaders are being tasked with enabling their organization’s agility, resilience, and productivity wherever and whenever. But how can IT deliver when growing complexity makes traditional IT operations models unsustainable?
The answer? By adopting a cloud-based operating model, that has traditionally been reserved for cloud providers. Learn how IT leaders can adopt this model today based on a converged platforms strategy that delivers the end-to-end automation and insights required for unified, simplified, and agile IT and user experiences.

Hybrid work and sustainability – two seemingly separate challenges – have become hot topics in boardroom and customer conversations. But both have roots in the use and operation of the physical office space.
In this session we share how a technology-first, “design-in” versus “add on” approach can help create an advanced smart building environment. You will learn how Cisco has been able to redefine its own hybrid “work from office” experience to attract top talent, help develop well-being, and provide a flexible work environment; all while meeting our pledge to reduce carbon emissions and exceeding even our own expectations.

Because work is not where you go, it’s what you do. With unified solutions, Cisco helps you not just recover and adjust in the face of change but thrive. Because nobody makes hybrid work, work better.
