Cisco Named “Customers’ Choice” for Data Center and Cloud Networking in 2020 Gartner Peer Insights
February 21, 2021
IT leaders are listening to their peers in greater numbers. They are sharing their operational experiences and rating their chosen vendors’ technologies on public forums. IT professionals are particularly looking for feedback on network automation technologies and deployment experiences others made on their journey to deliver on business resiliency and business agility needs.
Enterprises are accelerating their digital transformation and looking for a vendor that provides ease of integration and deployment, proactive service and support, operational enablement, along with products that can easily upgrade within the existing enterprise.
One such resource, Gartner, is well-respected throughout the industry. Gartner Peer Insights is an open review and ratings platform designed for enterprise software and services decision makers. We think of Gartner Peer Insights as the “Enterprise IT version of Yelp”. The fantastic news is that Cisco customers want to recommend Cisco solutions to their peers.
The latest Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Data Center and Cloud Networking report, shows that Cisco was named a “2020 Customers’ Choice” with the highest numbers of reviews (at the time of the report) with over 90 percent of customers providing reviews stating they would recommend Cisco Data Center and Cloud Networking products to their peers. We want to thank our customers for sharing their experiences which help us continuously improve Cisco’s products to support their diverse and demanding operations.
