ANZ Innovation Challenge 

In addition to the awards, Ken Boal, Vice President of Australia & New Zealand, announced the first ever ANZ Innovation Challenge for our partner community, offering a winning prize of $250,000 USD. Following the Global Innovation Challenge announced at Partner Summit last year, we are thrilled to hold our very own challenge for partners to participate in Australia & New Zealand!


The challenge is cross architecture and designed to drive an original and innovative solution to solve a business problem using Cisco Programmable Technology. Through the challenge we strive to:

– Accelerate partner-developed applications that will add value on top of any existing Cisco technology.
– Encourage partners to foster a culture of innovation and accelerate their programmability skills.
– Drive partners to create new programmability business use cases for Cisco solutions.
– Accelerate the creation of partner programmability practices that include Cisco.
The winning partner will be able to use the $250K USD prize to bring the idea to life by funding the initiative or towards the on-going development of the idea. The winner will also be automatically entered into Cisco’s Global Innovation Challenge.

The ANZ Innovation Challenge follows an announcement by Cisco last week, laying out a $61 Million investment plan to accelerate Australia’s digitisation and positively impact the community, business and government.

All final submissions will be scored on a 100-point scale based on the following:

– Business Challenge and Benefits- 20 points

– Market potential- 20 points
