Comstor Federal Summit 2020: Shaping Your Cisco Practice with Collaboration in Mind Previous item Simplify Your Cisco... Next item Technology Sales and CX...

The 11th Annual Comstor Federal Summit will be kicking off on March 5 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Reston, VA, bringing together Cisco partners and resellers to discuss federal spending projections and trends. Experts will discuss how elements like the 2020 election, cloud adoption, digital transformation and AI in government can impact federal sales opportunities for government contractors and VARs.

This year’s keynote presenter will be Aneesh Chopra, the first Chief Technology Officer of the United States (2009-2012) and President, CareJourney. Prior to serving as CTO of the U.S., he was Virginia’s fourth Secretary of Technology. His public service focused on better public-private collaboration as described in his book, Innovative State: How New Technologies Can Transform Government.

Experts from the Cisco, Comstor, and SYNNEX federal teams will be welcomed to the stage to share their insights about building a profitable Cisco business in the increasingly complex federal space.

Government customers are focused on digital transformation with many shifting to a cloud model. Whether it is a hybrid or multi-cloud environment, federal agencies are looking to make the transformation in a secure manner with the trust and support of vendors that are experienced. Cisco has FedRAMP authorizations for its Webex hosted collaboration solutions for both government and defense and meets the federal security requirements. Government contractors and partners that sell into the federal space can add these solutions into their Cisco offerings as they guide agencies into a cloud environment.

In addition to learning new insights about the complexities of federal IT needs and spending, partners have the opportunity to network with peers and secure one-on-one time with Cisco executives.

We look forward to capturing the valuable insights shared by thought leaders at the event.
