Innovation Predictable & Repeatable.
Cisco was eager to raise awareness of its role as an innovation leader and highlight its growing partnerships with governments and global communities. UK Prime Minister David Cameron also wanted to help encourage economic growth and accelerate innovation activity in the enterprise sector.
"...we wanted to have a meaningful impact attaching Cisco to the UK in a big way, making the focus on innovation, skills, and learning," said Tom Kneen, Head of Business Development at Cisco BIG."

UnitedHealth Group (UHG) is the largest health and well-being company in the world, serving over 85 million people worldwide. It needed to focus its innovation efforts on streamlining processes and focusing on preventative care, and that meant involving a huge number of people.
"With 137,000 employees, communicating the idea that anybody can be a part of innovation is harder than delivering on that promise," said Greg Hicks, Director of IT and Collaborative Innovation.
UHG was able to deliver on its innovation promise with its "Ignite!" innovation programme powered by the SpigitEngage platform. The result: dramatically improved patient care, customer experience, and discovering huge operational efficiencies.
With over 240,000 employees in 97 countries, global innovation at Citi is a challenge. In order to come up with best-in-class solutions, it had to innovate at scale.
Citi created the "Future in Banking Challenge" with SpigitEngage to run internal innovation challenges. Over 46,000 employees participated in the first challenge, submitting more than 2,000 ideas. The return on investment was tremendous.
"When we were looking at SpigitEngage, there were two things that got our attention. The first was the ability of the software to integrate into our technology and the second was the platforms ability to scale up for a global organisation," said Head of Innovation Susan Andrews.
