Good evening, channel partners. Welcome to ChannelE2E Podcast 065 — co-hosted by Content Czar Joe Panettieri and CompTIA CEO Todd Thibodeaux. Our guest is Ken Trombetta, VP of Cisco's Global Partner Organization.

During this conversation, we dive into emerging Internet of Things opportunities for channel partners -- including training, security, vertical markets and more. Trombetta explains how partners can extend from their current focus areas (such as data center, wireless or security expertise) and push into the IoT market. Plus, Thibodeaux weighs in with real-world IoT application examples that already surround us.

This is the first in a multi-part podcast series, in which CompTIA and ChannelE2E explore the evolving partner ecosystem with a range of channel leaders.
