DALLAS -- Cisco Partner Summit -- Cisco's new multicloud and networking strategy took center stage at the company's annual partner gathering recently.
Highlights of the conference included introduction of "Spark Assistant," a conversational assistant like Amazon Alexa or Apple Siri, but made for meetings. (See 'Hey, Spark!' Cisco Launches AI-Powered Voice Assistant for Meetings.)
Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) and partners also promoted their vision for putting IT back in charge of enterprise technology infrastructure through their multicloud technology and services. (See Cisco: We'll Put IT Back in Charge .)
And there was a somber moment of reflection for a lost friend.
There were more news and insights from the conference, and we'll bring you those over the next few days. But first this slideshow of some of what we saw (clap clap clap clap) deep in the heart of Texas.
