Long View Becomes Canada’s First Cisco Plus Partner

Calgary, Alberta – July 17, 2021 – Long View is honored to announced today that it has become Canada’s first Cisco Plus Partner and second in North America to hold this designation. Long View joins a short list of Cisco global partners who are certified to deliver Cisco Plus solutions.

85 percent of CIOs and IT decision makers agreed the shift to pay-as-you-consume spending gives organizations more flexibility and cost predictability. Cisco Plus represents a significant modernization of Cisco’s overall infrastructure go-to-market strategy built on a more cloud-centric, consumption-driven, autonomous operations value proposition. This updated Cisco go-to-market approach addresses a number of critical customer pain points related to improving digital infrastructure resiliency as they look to the future in the wake of COVID-19. Cisco Plus offers all the benefits of Cisco, in a consumption model. The initial offerings deliver hybrid cloud technologies and will later expand to a broader catalog of services.

“It’s about more than consumption; it’s a completely new experience that compliments Long View’s OneCloud offerings to accelerate how we deliver customer outcomes. In partnership with Cisco, Long View is excited to build the future of As-A-Service IT” said, Brent Allison, CEO Long View.

During the Cisco Live 2021 event, Cisco demonstrated a commitment to offering customers a much more integrated and cloud-centric approach to infrastructure delivery and operations, including the launch of a consumption-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) portfolio.

As a trusted Cisco Canada Gold partner for almost 20 years and a team of over 100 Cisco certified professionals, Long View is strongly positioned to deliver Cisco Plus solutions to our growing customer community.
