Cisco is at the forefront of smart building converged networks, integrating Operational Technology with IT and IoT, but is also is a leader in workforce collaboration technology and enterprise cyber security - critical elements to delivering a successful hybrid work strategy. Smart, Sustainable and Hybrid are three significant and investable trends in their own right. This session will look at how technology integration and automation can address each trend separately. More importantly it will also explain the benefits of taking a holistic approach to these three real estate challenges and addressing them as a collective will drive significant business benefits. We will also explain how businesses that take a cross functional approach, aligning IT, HR, Workplace Resources and Real Estate teams can ensure the synergies between Hybrid, Smart and Sustainable are effectively optimised. We will also demonstrate how taking this approach is delivering value for Cisco’s own workplace strategy as we evolve our real estate portfolio and adopt new working practices post pandemic.
