“Innovation is a continuous process. It's not something you take
care of when you have a spare moment. It has to be part of your
culture, it has to be deeply rooted.” Today, on our Innovation
Rockstar stage: Sanjeev Mervana, Vice President of Product
Management, Emerging Technologies & Incubation (ET&I) from

sourcing, developing, testing and managing new innovations, and
incubation ideas that ultimately drive Cisco's product-led growth.
