Hi my name is Gary Isaacs, Vice President Mid-market and Small Business at Cisco Canada. Welcome to Cisco Canada’s new blog series focused on the small and mid-size business market. Rod Scotland, National Architecture Strategy Lead, Mid-market and Small Business, Cisco Canada and I are excited for the opportunity to focus on some key issues taking place around this market in Canada and hope that you’ll find value in the topics and information being discussed in upcoming blog posts. We also appreciate feedback; so if you have any questions or topics you’d like to see discussed, please let us know in the comments section or via the email address provided below.
Throughout the series, you’ll also see question and answer blogs and guest posts from respected industry thought leaders. Our goal is to bring to life some of the challenges faced by small and mid-sized businesses across various industries in Canada by incorporating case studies, real-time industry news, trends and solutions that can make business easier.
More importantly, our blog series will be centered on the critical role that technology plays in the day-to-day business operations in Canada’s small and mid-sized businesses, and how when implemented properly, can provide a positive return on investment. We’ll discuss key topics such as wireless, bring your own device (BYOD), security and video, with focus on technologies that can enable you to streamline and grow your business and your bottom-line. Technology is leading the forefront for tomorrow’s successful businesses and it is Cisco’s imperative to help drive growth in Canada’s small and mid-size market.
In our next few posts, we’ll be focusing on key wireless business challenges, such as coverage, interference, network design and energy efficiency. We’ll also be conducting a Q&A with Sean Stanleigh, well-known small business editor for The Globe and Mail. In this post, we will discuss more of the overarching technology challenges facing small and mid-size businesses in Canada regarding proper use, rules and regulations, scalability and security.
We look forward to this series and hope that you’ll take part in the discussion by sharing your thoughts and ideas with us. To contact me directly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
