Bangalore: Narayana Health (NH), a multi-speciality healthcare service provider in India today announced alliance with Cisco to help deliver affordable specialty healthcare services remotely using Cisco’s Virtual Expertise Digital solution.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two companies, a highly secure medical-grade network with an enhanced visual experience / high-definition two-way video communication was launched.

The partnership will enable NH to offer diagnostic services for various specialties at an affordable cost with a high-quality, high-value patient experience in the areas of neurology (brain & nervous system), nephrology (kidney & renal disease), oncology (all types of cancers) and cardiology (heart related ailments) to patients remotely in various parts of the country.

“Healthcare and its inaccessibility is a persistent concern in India. We are in an era of digital transformation, and as hospitals begin this transition, we need to create infrastructure that is agile and adds value to patient care,” said Dr. Devi Shetty, Chairman, Narayana Health.

“Our association with Cisco will help Narayana Health to move closer to realize its vision of becoming a digital hospital and deliver advanced specialized healthcare to both rural as well as urban populations. We are looking forward to further deepening and leveraging this relationship in future”, he added.

Cisco will also implement modifications to hospital infrastructure enabling healthcare delivery at district centres and multi-specialty hospitals of Narayana Health Group across the country, creating a truly mobile and digital hospital experience.

NH will work together with Cisco to integrate and set up advanced telemedicine solutions across 3 centres in India – Sirsi and Bellary in Karnataka and Rajarhat in Bengal via the main centre at Narayana Health City located in Bommasandra, Bangalore.

Healthcare providers face many challenges in the delivery of healthcare services. The doctor–patient ratio in India is 1:1,674 against the World Health Organization (WHO) norm of 1:1,000. Nearly 70% of India's population lives in rural areas, but 80% of the total available doctors live in urban areas and patients often have to travel long distances at great cost to get quality healthcare.

This gap poses a huge challenge for the delivery of healthcare to rural areas. The lack of overall healthcare infrastructure offering specialised diagnostics is another major concern.

The Cisco Virtual Expertise Digital solution will help connect patients with NH certified conveniently and efficiently, regardless of distance. The solution brings voice, video and data to wherever patients are located and demonstrates how tele-health and sensors within medical devices can create new opportunities for innovation.

It enables real time telemetry of medical device data, audio, high-definition two way video, ECG, other vitals and radiology, analytics of medical reports and a web-based portal which supports mobile end points. A detailed 'clinical examination' and review of all investigations are now possible in a seamless manner with the option of recording the entire interaction.

It will allow doctors from NH to conduct highly critical diagnostics such as Diacom viewing and detection of Thrombolysis in cardiac care. The collaboration will help NH empower care teams so they can help provide more proactive and predictive care for their patients.

The Cisco Virtual Expertise Digital solution is encrypted to provide NH a highly secure platform for the safety and privacy of the patient record system to ensure the data is available when needed and that information is not used, disclosed, accessed, altered, or deleted inappropriately while being stored or transmitted while using this solution.

VC Gopalratnam, CIO, APJC, President, IT and Chief of Strategy, Planning and Operations, Cisco India, said, “Narayana Health has redefined how super-specialty healthcare is delivered. Using highly secure medical-grade networks with immersive visual experiences we can virtualize scarce resources including doctors, nurses and paramedics and provide access to specialist consultants remotely. We are excited that our collaboration with Narayana Health demonstrates the future of health and healthcare in India.”

Killexams : How Lightware Solved a Problem at Emory University It Didn't Even Know It Had

Nestled within the main Emory University campus in the Druid Hills section of Atlanta, Emory University School of Medicine is home to more than 400 future health professionals. The School of Medicine is ranked among the top institutions for biomedical education, clinical care, and research in the United States. Founded in 1915, the school boasts a diverse team of over 3,000 faculty members working in hospitals, clinics, classrooms, labs, and research centers. 

COVID-19 required the School of Medicine to rethink active collaboration. To meet the School's need, they turned to Lightware (opens in new tab), specifically the Taurus UCX to tackle meeting room and collaboration environment challenges. Because the Taurus UCX offers simplified USB-C connectivity for simplified audio, video, power, and seamless connectivity across various video conferencing applications, including Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, Zoom and others, it was ideal for Emory’s needs.

Killexams : Cisco Investments and Third Culture Capital Among Notable Investors in Voiceitt’s Latest Funding Round to Scale its Accessible Speech Recognition

Latest funding round accelerates commercialization of leading voice tech startup’s next-generation technology and expands its proprietary speech database of non-standard speech

RAMAT GAN, Israel & STAMFORD, Conn., December 02, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Voiceitt, the Israel-based award-winning leader in speech recognition technology for non-standard speech, announced today the closing of its latest funding round led by AMIT Technion, with participation from Cisco Investments and Third Culture Capital (3CC). The announcement follows the momentum of the beta launch of Voiceitt’s next-generation technology that recognizes and translates spontaneous speech of people with speech disabilities. An earlier version of the technology is available in the iOS App Store with the integration of Voiceitt's speech recognition capabilities with Alexa, and via partners and manufacturers that integrate their products with Voiceitt’s API or software development kit.

"Mainstream adoption of consumer voice products has driven new and transformative opportunities for Voiceitt, which is uniquely positioned as a significant innovator in this space," said Rona Samler, CEO at AMIT, Technion’s investment arm in health technologies.

"When we came across Voiceitt, we were so impressed by the founders’ commitment, mission, and drive to level the playing field for those individuals who struggle with communication on a day to day basis," says Julien Pham, MD, MPH, founder of 3CC. "Health equity is not just about gender and race, but also should be inclusive of veterans, disabled communities, and other vulnerable populations. The Voiceitt team has been so thoughtful about engaging thought leaders to gain insights from both clinical and health policy perspectives, particularly around the American Disability Act, and has shown true care in creating a technology that can work seamlessly for those who need it most, at a global scale."

Voiceitt garnered early support from other investors such as AARP, the Alexa Fund, and Microsoft’s M12; and participated in the Google AI Launchpad and Techstars programs.

While you can argue they are late to market, we believe that they’re going to be able to learn from the lessons of all their competitors and come out with even stronger products,’ one Cisco partner tells CRN about the company’s as-a-service drive.

 ARTICLE TITLE HERE

Customers are looking for different ways to acquire the IT they need, including buying in an as-a-service model to save some capital, but Cisco has faced a few accurate hindrances to as a service, according to the company’s executives.

For the San Jose, Calif.-based tech giant, supply chain constraints have been an ongoing obstacle to the Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS) trend because Cisco and its partners couldn’t deliver the equipment that’s part of as-a-service offers, specifically, its Cisco Plus strategy.

“And then we also realized we weren’t as operationally ready,” Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins told analysts regarding the company’s XaaS push at Cisco Partner Summit 2022 earlier this month.

Many customers interpreted the launch of Cisco Plus as just a different way to finance IT — a “fancy lease” — versus a true XaaS model, said Neil Anderson, area vice president of cloud and infrastructure solutions for Maryland Heights, Mo.-based Cisco Gold partner World Wide Technology (WWT).

But channel partners want to put vendor XaaS offerings “under the hood” and built their own services on top of the stack to create a turnkey offering for their end customers. Customers, on the other hand, often want to have the option to manage some of their own IT, Anderson said.

“Part of the problem in getting to a true as-a-service model, as a utility, is that most customers still want some form of co-management. They don’t want somebody to just do everything for them and they have no visibility into it. They want a portal where they can see how things are going, maybe touch a few things. So, this idea of co-management, I think, is going to be really important for network as a service,” he said.

WWT is seeing this prerequisite across the board — not just in networking, but also in the collaboration space. The firm is seeing more RFPs with a requirement for managed services. “That allows the partner to add an additional layer of value to it so it’s not just a resell lead, it’s [giving] the partner some skin in the game long term,” said Joe Berger, area vice president of Digital Experiences for WWT.

Cisco Channel Chief Oliver Tuszik told CRN in an interview that the company is focused on enabling customers to buy and consume the Cisco portfolio in an as a service motion if that’s how they’d like to buy, and for more partners to sell in an as a service model.

“Our strategy must be that we allow our customers, wherever they are in the world, to buy whatever Cisco has in his portfolio in an as a service or managed motion,” Tuszik said.

But the as-a-service effort goes beyond products. It’s about building out Cisco’s Provider partner role the company introduced in 2021 within its Global Partner Program, he said, a role built with the MSP partner in mind and recognizes partners based on their investment in managed services and as-a-service solutions. As the managed services business has taken off, Cisco has since upped its investments in Provider partners with predictable pricing, deal registration for managed services, more flexible consumption options, dedicated investment and business development funds, technical support enablement, and co-marketing, the company said.

Cisco is also building more modular programs and new incentive schemes, Tuszik said. “We are incentivizing our people to sell partner-managed services,” he told CRN. “We’re paying our sales team more if they sell a partner-managed service — 50 percent more,” he added.

At Partner Summit 2022, the tech giant revealed it had tripled the number of staff working on service creation motions with partners, as well as a 1.5x payout multiplier to support the growth of partner-managed SD-WAN, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), and full-stack observability offers.

Companies like HPE and Cisco are turning to partners during this time of resource constraints and talent shortages to learn more about what the channel can offer by way of managed services and what they can take off the vendors’ hands. Customers are looking for “cloud-like” IT experiences that are more automated and that also encompass on-premises tech environments for customers grappling with requirements that prevent them from going all-in on cloud, like data sovereignty. There’s where Cisco Plus fits in, said CJ Metz, vice president of Modern Infrastructure for Irvine, Calif.-based Cisco Gold Partner Trace3.

Trace3 also partners with HPE. Metz said that the major differentiator for HPE GreenLake has been in how the company shifted its entire focus to support its as a service strategy, including executive compensation, sales compensation and the support structures that underpin it. “[HPE] just has had more time to take more risks, to learn the hard lessons,” he said.

Cisco, he added, has been forthcoming to partners about its need to catch up. “Cisco’s got some ground to cover, but it’s really about the long game. While you can argue they are late to market, we believe that they’re going to be able to learn from the lessons of all their competitors and come out with even stronger products.”

For Cisco’s part in becoming more operationally ready for XaaS, Robbins told analysts: “I think over the next 6 to 12 months, you’ll see a lot of progress on this front.”

In the meantime, Cisco already has many as-a-service offers on the market today by way of their channel partners, the CEO added.

“We’ve got stuff going in the cloud marketplaces that we didn’t have before, we’ve got partners delivering as a service today and we’ve got the SASE [Cisco Plus Secure Connect Now] offer out there,” Robbins said. “There’s a few things we need to do, but there’s an awful lot offers that are out there today for customers.”

Cisco doesn’t specifically break out revenue related to its Cisco Plus strategy, but the company’s most accurate fiscal quarter that ended Oct. 29 saw software subscription revenue climb 11 percent year over year.

Killexams : Cisco Report: Multicloud-Enabled Networks Key to 'Viable Future'

Cisco Report: Multicloud-Enabled Networks Key to 'Viable Future'

Examining "new rules for a multicloud world," Cisco published a survey-based networking trends report that relates the very future of organizations to multicloud-enabled networks.

The Nov. 15 "2023 Global Networking Trends Report" further finds multicloud software-defined networking (SDN) is highly coveted tech, while management complexity is approaching ever-present security concerns as a top challenge when managing distributed and hybrid workloads.

The report is primarily based on a survey of more than 2,500 global IT pros, especially targeting early adopters and thought leaders in cloud/development/network operations in an attempt to be as forward-looking as possible, the company said.

In looking forward, the report seems to indicate the ability to connect multicloud implementations is actually an existential concern for enterprises.

"If a company is to have a viable future, the network needs to be multicloud-enabled, ubiquitous, reliable, secure, and agile," the report's introduction said.

The most significant challenge to securing a viable future, of course, is security -- always security -- mentioned by 56 percent of respondents. However, while "complexity of security" was the No. 1 response when listing networking challenges faced when managing hybrid cloud and distributed workloads, "complexity of end-to-end management" was close behind, named by 53 percent of respondents.

The survey also separately asked CloudOps and NetOps pros about the most significant challenges their organizations face when using multiple clouds, and the results were similar to above. Specifically, security was mentioned by 36 percent of respondents in the CloudOps space and 39 percent of NetOps respondents as the top challenge, while complexity was close behind, identified by 37 percent of CloudOps team members and 36 percent of NetOps folks.

With the rise of complexity becoming a more significant concern, a related "expert guidance" snippet of advice was included in the report. "Complexity is a function of the decentralized nature of the network, clouds, and internet," said a company exec. "But as both security and management get spread over a wider and more complex landscape, it simply isn't possible to manage everything manually. Adding more technologies to the mix won't necessarily help; solutions must be the right ones. Adopting a platforms approach will allow organizations to automate management and visibility, simplify their ever-growing complex networks, and deliver a unified experience from end to end.

"Platforms powered by AI and machine learning can support an effective cloud operating model that automates end-to-end policy for network and cloud management across different teams. By building more intelligence into common platforms, the network can work harder and take more of the administrative load. That means IT can spend more time focusing on the business experience and outcomes, where it's needed most."

Security -- specifically the management of same -- was also the most significant motivation for organizations to use multiple (public and private) clouds for all services. Here, managing security was the No. 1 response from CloudOps (49 percent), while in NetOps it was tied with "more agile development environment," both garnering 42 percent of responses.

Regarding that last data point, the report said it marked a milestone change in Cisco's continuing series of reports (for example, the company has published similar reports for at least the past two years, and the new survey report is closely related to a "2022 Global Hybrid Cloud Trends Report" published in May and covered in the Virtualization & Cloud Review article, "Cisco Describes Hybrid Cloud 'New Normal,' Touts Cloud Operating Model for Success"). "For the first time, agility and business performance have overtaken cost and network management as the key concerns for IT teams, with 42 percent of respondents citing a more agile development environment as their top reason for moving to multiple clouds," today's report said.

Another key takeaway concerns technology priorities, finding that the most-wanted tools offer visibility and automation, with the infamous "complexity" concern again in the mix.

"The complexity that has become such a challenge for hybrid cloud networking is having a clear impact on technology choices," Cisco said. "Visibility is a recurring theme in much of our survey, and it represents two of the top five responses for network technology considerations. End-to-end visibility (50 percent) and full-stack observability (43 percent) are especially important in complex multicloud and cloud-native environments for ensuring the health of application performance and user experience.

"Because of their ability to simplify complex operations, orchestration and automation rank in the top three of such technologies. Software-defined networking (SDN) can also provide network consistency and enjoys a similar role in the hybrid cloud. Interestingly, direct-to-cloud networking, which delivers faster middle-mile conduits to cloud providers, is one of the top networking technologies businesses are embracing for hybrid cloud networking."

Other data points of the report include:

  • Although cloud adoption continues apace, 50 percent of respondents say that most of their workloads are still deployed on-premises.
  • "Faster problem resolution" was the No. 1 feature or benefit of hybrid cloud networking most in demand, named by 50 percent of respondents and followed by "faster provisioning/change" (48 percent) and "proactive problem detection" (48 percent).
  • When asked about top difficulties of deploying networks that support cloud native, the top answers were: "secure traffic through microservices" (34 percent); "self-service provisioning and change management" (32 percent); and "automating network workflows" (32 percent).
  • "Improved cloud security" was listed by 45 percent of respondents who were asked about key motivations for greater networking/cloud collaboration, followed by "overall greater efficiency" (41 percent) and "enhanced cloud app performance" (39 percent).
  • When asked to list the top three roadblocks preventing more collaboration between teams, the top answers were: "competing priorities" (55.4 percent); "shortage of skilled staff" (41.5 percent); and "lack of cross-domain telemetry" (41.5 percent).

"The trends in this report provide fresh insights that can help guide your network and cloud decisions over the next five years," Cisco said in conclusion. "In themselves, many of the ideas aren't new: themes such as cross-functional collaboration, increased complexity, and business-driven network operations have been part of the conversation for several years. What is different this time around is that these issues are now having a real impact on day-to-day operations for technology leaders.

"The last two years of uncertainty meant that network operations had to quickly adopt a model that could support increased network and business agility, better security, and improved application performance. This tipped the balance in favor of processes and objectives that many organizations planned to implement someday and made that day today."

Killexams : Cisco new integrations increase flexibility of hybrid work

Cisco has revealed new integrations between its Collaboration platform Webex and Apple technologies to provide people more flexibility in their hybrid work.

As more businesses build long-term hybrid work strategies, Webex aims to provide in-office, remote and hybrid workers with the intuitive collaboration tools they need.

The first integration is Mobile Camera Share, which allows iPhone and iPad users to share content from the rear-facing or front-facing camera via the Webex Meetings mobile app and annotate over what they are seeing. With next generation videoconferencing, users can write, draw, and add shapes, in real-time and simultaneously in their meetings. This industry-first innovation enables frontline workers to collaborate more effectively by leveraging the high-quality video capture capabilities of Apple devices.

Architects, engineers, or construction workers can share job site progress with clients in real-time, instead of sending static images or screenshots. Another potential use case is for a technician to show the equipment in a factory, data center or field location with a help center team, who can write and draw instructions on the live feed to avoid any misunderstandings. Experts can see everything as if they were together in the room, noting their input onscreen where exactly corrections or changes should be made.

“Today, people across the Middle East expect flexibility when it comes to work. True hybrid work means being empowered to use your favorite devices to work seamlessly in the office, at home and everywhere in between. The latest collaboration solutions from Webex signify another step towards empowering workforces with greater choice and beyond the office,” said Ahmad Zureiki, Director of Collaboration Business, Cisco Middle East and Africa.

Apple’s Continuity Camera is a new feature in macOS Ventura that enables Mac customers to use their iPhone as a webcam. Webex users can use the camera system on iPhone to unlock powerful video effects like Center Stage, Portrait mode, and Studio Light. In addition, Webex supports Desk View in macOS Ventura, which acts like an overhead camera without the need for complicated equipment, showing the user’s face and desk simultaneously — great for creating demos, instructional videos, drawing on paper, and more.

These integrations are a testament to Webex’s commitment to making collaboration even easier. Collaborating with Apple technology and putting the power of choice in the hands of hybrid workers builds on the momentum over the course of the year.

Killexams : Cisco shares pop on earnings beat and increased 2023 forecast

A sign bearing the logo for communications and security tech giant Cisco Systems Inc is seen outside one of its offices in San Jose, California, August 11, 2022.

Paresh Dave | Reuters

Cisco reported fiscal first-quarter results on Wednesday that beat analysts' estimates and boosted its guidance for fiscal 2023.

The stock rose about 5% in extended trading.

Here's how the company did:

  • Earnings per share: 86 cents vs. 84 cents expected, according to Refinitiv
  • Revenue: $13.6 billion vs. $13.3 billion expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv

Revenue increased 6% year over year, while net income slid 10% to $2.7 billion. The company now expects sales growth in fiscal 2023 of 4.5% to 6.5%, up from a prior forecast that called for growth of 4% to 6%.

CFO Scott Herren said in a company release that Cisco delivered "strong results" and attributed the company's guidance forecast in part to an "easing supply situation."

While Cisco's numbers topped estimates, the company is still struggling to grow as the technology world rapidly shifts to cloud and subscription software and away from buying physical boxes. Cisco's stock price is down 27% this year, while the Nasdaq has dropped 29%.

Cisco's top business segment, which includes data-center networking switches, delivered $6.68 billion in revenue, up 12% from a year earlier.

Internet for the Future, its second-largest unit, saw revenue drop 5% to $1.3 billion. The division contains routed optical networking hardware the company picked up through its 2021 Acacia Communications acquisition.

Sales in the Collaboration segment, which features Webex, contributed $1.1 billion in revenue, down 2% year over year.

Cisco will hold its quarterly call with investors at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Cisco is set to unveil a new edition of its SD-WAN software that will extend the system’s reach and include new management capabilities.

Among the most significant enhancements to Cisco SD-WAN release 17.10, expected in December, is the ability to use Cisco SD-WAN Multi Region Fabric (MRF) support with existing Software Defined Cloud Interconnect (SDCI) systems to significantly expand the reach and control of the SD-WAN environment. 

MRF lets customers divide their SD-WAN environments into multiple regional networks that operate distinctly from one another, along with a central core-region network for managing inter-regional traffic, according to Cisco. 

SDCI technology is used to link enterprise resources to a variety of cloud, network, and internet service providers. Cisco customers could use SDCI with their SD-WAN deployments in the past but not MRF.

By combining the two technologies and using the Cloud OnRamp Multicloud Interconnect Gateway in Cisco SD-WAN software, customers can now set network, configuration and security policies across a wide variety of locations from a central site. Cisco’s SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp links branch offices or individual remote users to cloud applications such as Cisco’s Webex, Microsoft 365, AWS, Google, Oracle, Salesforce and more.

Customers can now assign regions and roles to SD-WAN edges deployed within SDCI infrastructure, and they can segment MRF regions into multiple sub-regions and share border routers between these sub-regions, allowing for better redundancy and failover-centric network designs, according to John Joyal, senior manager, product and solutions marketing with Cisco's enterprise SD-WAN and routing group. (Joyal wrote a blog about Cisco's SD-WAN MRF enhancements.)

Killexams : CES preview: Tech world prepares to convene in Vegas for annual trade show

The CES trade show symbolically kicks off the new year for tech, providing a blueprint for what to expect over the next 12 months and beyond.

The 2023 event, however, may be defined by what has happened in the months leading up to it: A spate of layoffs, hiring freezes, consolidation of real estate and all-around hand wringing in Silicon Valley and beyond. Oh, and the threat of an antitrust vote (or two) around the time of the conference, which runs Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas.

With the annual extravaganza less than a month away, CES organizers have set a goal of 100,000 attendees, compared with 44,000 a year ago, and they are planning for 2.1 million net square feet of floor space, compared with 1.3 million last year. [Prepandemic, show attendance was in the range of 150,000 to 182,000.]

The confirmed companies participating include: Facebook parent company Meta Platforms Inc. Advanced Micro Devices Inc.  Intel Corp. General Motors Co.  Microsoft Corp. Amazon.com Inc. Alphabet Inc.’s   Google with a big outdoor facility, Qualcomm Inc.  Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. Verizon Communications Inc. Nvidia Corp. Cisco Systems Inc. Adobe Inc. Delta Air Lines Inc. TikTok and Roku Inc.

“Major companies want the physical connection. They want deeper discussions over a coffee or a meal. They are seeking serendipity,” Gary Shapiro, chief executive of the Consumer Technology Association, which runs CES, told MarketWatch.

“It is a good place to kick off the year, because a lot of our customers, like LG Electronics AMD and BMW, are there,” said Walt Hearn, vice president of worldwide sales and customer excellence at Ansys Inc. a simulation-engineering company with a market cap of $21 billion. Hearn has made a point of attending CES every year, even during the pandemic.

What brings Hearn and others to CES is a glimpse of the immediate future — in this case, around the themes of the metaverse, sustainability, digital health, electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles.

The metaverse holds the most tantalizing possibilities — Meta, Apple, Microsoft and nearly every other tech company all have designs on the market — though it has been fraught with delays because the technology is pricey and the experience difficult to explain.

“If you ask five people about metaverse, you get six definitions,” Todd Richmond, an analyst at the professional engineers association IEEE, told MarketWatch. “It is a platform for ways to communicate, but what is changing are the on-ramps to it. I was at CES in 2016 and we were talking about it being the breakthrough year for VR [virtual reality]. It wasn’t. Will 2023 be that year? Probably not.”

Still, global spending on augmented reality and virtual reality is expected to reach $13.8 billion this year and $50.9 billion by 2026, according to market researcher IDC. 

Tech’s year(s) of living dangerously?

Layoffs, CEO firings and looming antitrust legislation could make 2023 among the most unpredictable and treacherous years for tech. Historians go back to the dot-com implosion of the early 2000s for a comparable stretch of chaos and uncertainty.

“We’ve gone from overstaffing and growth at all costs to a mindset now where cash conservation is king,” Andy Stinnes, general partner at venture-capital firm Cloud Apps Capital Partners, told MarketWatch. “We came off this crazy cycle and now are shifting hard to caution for the next year to 18 months. Funds are sitting on dry powder, with public markets down 50% and IPOs dead.

“We are in a new cycle, just as we were in 2000 and 2008,” Stinnes added. “Now is a good time to make investments [that] are investor-friendly and not founder-friendly. We essentially sat out in 2021. Now we are active.”

Silicon Valley is currently being roiled by the precarious status of Twitter Inc. under its combustible new leader, Elon Musk. Meanwhile, Meta is slashing 11,000 jobs as its grandiose plans for the metaverse appear to be at least a year or two away. HP Inc. Cisco and DoorDash Inc. are also among the tech players shedding thousands of jobs. The CEO tenures of Amazon.com Inc.’s Andy Jassy and HP’s Enrique Lores seem shaky after Walt Disney Co. jettisoned Bob Chapek only two years after he was promoted to the company’s top spot, and Salesforce Inc. co-CEO Bret Taylor is departing after a little over a year in the job. And the acceleration of layoffs and real-estate consolidation at Meta and HP has renewed tensions between employees who want to continue to work from home and employers who want them onsite.

It is hard to gauge the influence of CES — or any tech show, for that matter — at a time when COVID is still a threat and the economy is unpredictable, according to executives who plan to attend next month.

While some may question the need for old-fashioned face time in Las Vegas in an era of Zoom meetings and streaming seminars, the four-day gathering still generates excitement among international companies looking for exposure in the U.S., extensive media coverage and deals.

“It is a time of big change,” Cullen Jennings, chief technology officer of security and collaboration at Cisco, who last attended CES in 2020, told MarketWatch. Cisco plans to show Webex Hologram with Magic Leap 2 headsets.

“It is always useful to see products demonstrated in person,” Jennings said. “It takes a lot of time and energy to attend a show, especially one as big as CES. The work-from-home principle also applies to trade shows: There are certain things people can do remotely, or in person.”

The legislative front offers no relief, despite Republicans winning the House in the midterm elections. With the Democrats maintaining control of the Senate, White House officials insist antitrust legislation to rein in the likes of Apple, Google and Amazon remains a priority during the lame-duck session.

“We are very committed to moving ambitious tech antitrust legislation,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during a press briefing in November. There is “no reason why Congress can’t act before the end of the year,” she said.

The Federal Trade Commission also continues to turn up the heat on mega-tech acquisitions. Last month, Politico reported that the agency was likely to file an antitrust lawsuit to block Microsoft Corp.’s $69 billion of Activision Blizzard Inc. The FTC, under chair Lina Khan, is locked in a legal skirmish to block Meta’s purchase of virtual-reality fitness startup Within.

A court date in that case is expected this month in San Jose, Calif.

Perhaps no one knows the ups and downs of the annual tech show in Las Vegas better than Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies Inc. The tech consultant and analyst has attended 47 variations of the January show, stretching back to 1975. He’ll be in Vegas next month.

“The show is realistic about any tough times ahead but is always forward-looking,” Bajarin told MarketWatch. “Yes, tech is facing a couple of tough years, but history has shown that it eventually rebounds, and companies need to be ready for when it does.

“I expect the show to still be upbeat and looking forward even knowing that the next few years in tech will be difficult,” he added. “Its optimistic outlook is what makes this show interesting even in bad times.”
