Departing CEO John Chambers challenged IT to
be ready for change in his final Cisco Live keynote.
This week Cisco is holding its annual user conference, Cisco Live, in San Diego. The 2015 edition of Live is unlike any other, as this will be the last time John Chambers will deliver the keynote as CEO of the company. In a little over a month, Chambers will transition to an advisory role as Executive Chairman of the board. So while customers, partners, and others involved in Cisco’s ecosystem will likely continue to interact with him, the transition to Chuck Robbins is well underway and will be complete come the end of July.
