Cisco continues to demonstrate their commitment towards the academic alliance programme and towards ensuring Middlesex students get the Cisco experience. This year, in order to overcome the COVID 19 measures, Cisco devised a virtual online session through the efforts of Cisco’s Netacad team and Cisco’s UAE giving team. It has been an amazing step to cement further the relationship and it deserves our sincere appreciation.
The online session started with an engaging virtual tour to Cisco Middle East Innovation & Experience Center delivered by Haya Alzeer and Eman AlTamimi showcasing Healthcare patient Journey. Playing the roles of patient and a nurse, Haya and Eman respectively demonstrated different scenarios from arranging appointments in the hospital, to visiting hospital virtually, to check-in and admission at the hospital, to tracking resources at the hospital and much more. They also addressed topics related to security, data confidentiality and privacy, collaboration, data analytics, and network infrastructure in the context of hospital solutions. A talk from Kadir Kaya on Cisco’s heritage, disruption and IT transformations across the years emphasising the bridge created by Cisco to connect user with application and hope with possibility. The session was well received by CEI students. The students were engaged with Q&A and benefited from the expertise of Cisco’s professionals across different verticals as well as getting a glimpse of Cisco’s technology.
A special thanks for Alexandra Grigore and Zeina Saade for organising and arranging this opportunity in such times for MDX students. The CEI team is looking forward for more engaging sessions and collaboration with Cisco.
