Digital technologies have all but kept the world running through the Covid-19 pandemic. 

But it’s not just technology per se. 

Outstanding leadership and trusted partnerships enable cities and organizations to pivot quickly to meet big challenges with digital innovations. 

Take Turin, Italy. 

In this podcast, Cisco Techbeat host Kevin Delaney speaks with the technology analyst Rob Enderle, and Dr. Guy Diedrich, global innovation officer for Cisco and leader of the company’s country digital acceleration program, or CDA — with additional insights from Agostino Santoni, Country Manager for Cisco, Italy. 

Together they share the story of a city — and a Cisco technology partnership — that prevailed against some of the biggest challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
