Edzard Overbeek, senior vice president for Cisco Services, talked through new services opportunities for partners during the second General Session of the week. Specifically, Overbeek highlighted ways partners could take advantage of new service offerings, including those related to platforms, consulting and industry-specific requirements.
"There's tremendous opportunity, I truly believe, for you and for us," Overbeek said.
Overbeek heads up the Cisco Services Partner Program (CSPP) introduced at last year's Partner Summit. He said the program today boasts 50,000 partners globally from 140 countries, with $200 million paid out in services rebates.
