This is part one of a two-part series about partner journeys with the DevNet Specialization. In this series, we’ll look at the specialization journey to obtaining the technical skills and how they are used. This series will also bookend a Cisco Champions Radio podcast about DevNet Specialization that will release on November 16th.
DevNet Specialization is a program we just launched in June 2020 during Cisco Live US. This program is meant to recognize Cisco partners that have demonstrated technical capabilities and business practices around software programmability and automation on Cisco products and services.
As Chuck Robbins mentioned at DevNet Create, “One of the unique things about DevNet is that it allows you, as a partner, to create your own intellectual property. It belongs to you, and it creates huge, differentiated value for you and your organization.” We believe that DevNet Specialization is the way for partners to differentiate and assure customers they have these capabilities.
