While discussing features requests for VSM 7.(next) with members of TAC and the BU, it dawned on me that we are missing a fantastic opportunity here by not asking our partners and customers what is on your wish list of "I really wish VSM 7 had this cool feature." Yes, Cisco like many companies does invite partners and customers to focus group events to discuss what the company and product is doing right and where we could improve, but it would be a shame to miss asking the active community here on the CSC forums - so here's your chance.
If you have an idea how we can improve the product, please reply to this thread and post your suggestions. Tell us what features you love, which ones you hate, how we can improve those features which already exist, and then give us your best pie in the sky wish list of, "Gee, if only it could do this!"
I promise you that this thread will be read by and discussed by TAC engineers and BU marketing and development - and I will go a step further and promise to champion those improvements which seem reachable within the upcoming product development cycle and see how far we can push this product.
I hope to hear from you,
