This year’s Cisco Connect Germany took place online on 16 March with the motto “Possibilities”. The successful 2.5 hour event was attended by 6,000 people. Here, we’ve put together a brief summary of our contributions for you.
Preparations kicked off for the Bechtle team back in December and very quickly, a plan was in place: Which partner packages do we want to use? Which topics do we want to cover and who do we want to speak? What presentation possibilities are there during online events? Three months sounds like a lot of time to prepare, but the time can really fly by, and since we are all used to digital collaboration, we were able to use Cisco Webex to bring all in-house and external parties together to prepare and deliver the information needed.
As the big day gets closer, the tension rises. You can only see the results of your hard work right at the end and can only hope that the connection doesn’t fail and, of course, that the customers are interested in what you are presenting. We don’t want to keep the videos we shot for the event all to ourselves.
One of the videos was a short film with Andreas Wespe, IT Business Architect, on the topic of “The API is (not) the Limit”. IT systems are becoming even more high-performing, but what can be realised beyond the limitations of hardware? The Meraki API is an example of how different—often already existing—devices can be easily linked up for new solutions. It’s even easy for those who aren’t IT wizzes to understand!😉 (Only available in German)
If you are looking to find out more about the topic “From the flipchart to the interactive video conference”, then look no further than our colleague Mathis Heinert, IT Solution Architect. The combination of the Cisco Room Kit Mini and Samsung Flip delivers a cost-efficient and yet very flexible room system which can be used as both a video conferencing system and a digital flipchart.

The topic “Hackers no longer attack, they log in” is tackled by our colleague, Patrick Sommer, in his brief video, embracing the mantra that modern threat protection doesn’t have to be complicated, needs hardly any time and allows you to concentrate on your most important tasks.

With a total of 28,953 live views and 418,472 live minutes watched, this year’s Cisco Connect really speaks for itself. We were proud to take part, even though the 2.5 hours were over in a flash.
