Wendy Bahr
Wendy Bahr is the Senior Vice President of Cisco’s Global Partner Organization. She has responsibility for managing and supporting 55,000+ global partners who represent the company’s primary route to market. Encompassing system integrators, value-added resellers, distributors, services partners, independent software vendors, and technology partners, this global connected partner ecosystem accounts for up to 85 percent of Cisco’s revenue and is a unique differentiator in helping deliver business outcomes for customers and driving growth for Cisco.




Customers need solutions that combine capabilities from more than one company — which makes who you partner with more crucial than ever. Let us help you forge ecosystem partnerships that can add value to your business. You’ll meet partners on the World of Solutions floor in a guided tour across areas such as security, collaboration, cloud, data center, IoT, and networking.




On the heels of Partner Summit, we’ve distilled the most crucial messages and actions you can take for the most impact in multiple areas. Both strategy and technical sessions will give you a rare glimpse into some of our global and EMEAR priorities.




Striking a balance between leadership vision and practical action, all of our sessions focus on enabling you and your company to lead more effectively. Hear the latest and see them in action. World of Solutions architecture tours led by Cisco experts will explain our technology vision and show how partners play a crucial role in making it a reality.
