Cisco is proud to announce provisional authority to operate (PATO) for Hosted Collaboration Solution for Defense (HCS-D). Securing the cloud means securing collaboration At Cisco, we’re uniquely positioned to help the Department of Defense (DoD) modernize collaboration and address various mandates to move to cloud, improve security and modernize. We understand that all missions matter and the need to be responsive to the demands of modern force readiness.

As the workplace has become more modernized, globalized and digitized, the tools that we use for collaboration have become even more integral to the success of our workdays. Cisco's Webex platform has been a long-standing leader in the collaboration sphere, but that position of strength hasn't made the company complacent. At Cisco Live 2019, the company unveiled an infusion of AI into its Webex platform, which it calls Cognitive Collaboration. Some of this manifests in things like People Insights, which uses AI to crawl the web for public information about people you're meeting with outside of your organization, or to crawl internal data sources for people within your company. Take a look at what this AI-fueled version of Webex can do for your business.2019-07-02http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10665/ ISTE 2019: How technology will change careers and industries over the next 10 yearshttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10666A talk featuring research from Cisco and Oxford Economics at the ISTE edtech conference looked at "significant transformation" coming in the labor market.2019-07-02http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10666/ ISTE 2019: Cisco Simulator Sends Teachers to Mars for Hands-On Learninghttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10667Cisco's Mars Classroom Simulator Challenge at the ISTE 2019 conference, is an escape room that requires participants to work together to solve a problem in a fictional scenario on the planet Mars.
