AMD, Cisco, Dell, Intel, VMware CEOs On Toughest 2023 Challenges
Here’s what CEOs Chuck Robbins, Lisa Su, Pat Gelsinger, Raghu Raghuram and Michael Dell say about their toughest customer challenges in 2023 and their strategy to help.
CEO: Chuck Robbins
Customer challenges this year that are top-of-mind for Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins includes supply chain and component shortages as well as geopolitical uncertainty.
“In short, we now live in a world that is predictably unpredictable,” said Robbins. “Challenges with supply chain and components shortages, the war in Ukraine, an increasingly dynamic geopolitical and economic environment, and the ongoing pandemic are the types of issues leaders probably never imagined dealing with.”
Robbins said Cisco will focus this year on collaborating closely with its partners to serve their customers “no matter what lies ahead.”
In terms of investments in 2023 to meet these challenges, Cisco will focus on “leading in security” as cybersecurity is on every customers mind.
“Our teams are intensely focused on building best-in-class security products and services with a platform that unifies our portfolio,” said Robbins. “We have built a strong foundation to capture this massive opportunity, rebooting our strategy and resetting our operating model to deliver on the vision of the Cisco Security Cloud.”
