Cisco's Growth Secret

Having been recently relegated to the status of "value stock," Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO  ) remains one of the most attractive core technology holdings available. Now, as the company continues to ramp up its efforts in the software-defined data center, or SDDC, Cisco is taking on some of the biggest names in cloud computing. While VMWare (NYSE: VMW  ) is the clear leader on the computing side of the SDDC, Microsoft is ramping up its efforts. Cisco's size allows it to easily compete with Juniper Networks and makes it an attractive partner for both VMWare and Microsoft.

In the video below, contributor Doug Ehrman discusses how Cisco is turning the SDDC into a potential new growth engine worth consideration.

Once a high-flying tech darling, Cisco is now on the radar of value-oriented dividend lovers. Get the low down on the routing juggernaut in The Motley Fool's premium report. Click here now to get started.
