Lessons from the Trenches: Democratizing Digital Innovation at Cisco
thingQbator started as an internal incubator for Internet of Things ideas coming from the engineer community in Cisco’s Bangalore campus. Over the last 4 years the program has grown to 8 more locations with 4 Cisco locations – Bangalore, San Jose, London and Pune and 5 universities. In this talk I’d like to cover why this is an exciting time for digital transformation, my experience of setting up, running and scaling a digital innovation program inside a fortune 100 company, the highs and lows and some lessons learnt in the process.
