I was at the G20 Summit in Seoul that took place in November last year where Korean President Lee Myung-bak invited more than 100 CEOs to present a report on the Need For Sustainable And Balanced Growth to world leaders. For me, technology can play a huge role. I see Technology as an enabler to drive sustainability / Cisco as a horizontal player across all verticals to drive innovations / social virtualization – any services, any time, seamlessly. In parts of the world today, people have access to technology before they have access to quality water and electricity Cisco estimates that the number of devices connected to the Internet in 2020 could potentially reach 1 trillion - driven by sensors on buildings, smart meters, livestock, even your toilet can be connected providing you with a daily health update. This will enable huge productivity gains in the developed markets especially and create new services
