In the spirit of collaborative working, Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) is delighted to announce five key technology partners as supporters of Cisco House -- an inspirational experience created to illustrate transformational opportunities for countries, cities and organisations today and in the future.
Citrix, EMC, Intel, SAP and Schneider Electric will work together with Cisco to provide technology and resources including virtual desktops, data storage, processing power, analytical software and energy management to the House, which is nestled in a unique roof-top location above Westfield Stratford City with stunning views over the Olympic Park. The partnership demonstrates how partners can work together and create an ecosystem to transform business.
Open for five months from April 2012 and expected to greet over 11,000 guests, Cisco House is a dedicated showcase with a dynamic connected environment.

In short -- it is a showcase of new ideas to change the way we live, learn, work and play.
Key to Cisco House is an engaging multi-media business transformation journey which looks at how innovative organisations are transforming their countries, cities and organisations today, as well as the opportunities they can look forward to in the future.
