Cisco to stay out of the services business

John Ribeiro | March 9, 2011
Cisco Systems plans to collaborate rather than compete with IT services providers as it targets new market opportunities such as virtual education and health for communities, a senior company executive said on Wednesday.

Most of the deployments that Cisco is currently working on in various cities tend to favor a cloud model for the delivery of the services, Elfrink said.

Cisco has a strong brand in enterprise and government markets, and this will help in its Smart+Connected Communities business, Johnson said. There could however be some uncertainties and delays in the growth of the business as community projects can sometimes get weighed down by issues related to social policy and political issues, he said.
