As Cisco aims to defend its position as a dominant technology provider, it has brought together a team of high-powered executives to oversee a transformation of its business.CEO Chuck Robbins seeks to maintain the company's core computer-networking business by expanding into new technologies. He's also adding more software offerings and building out a subscription software business.To do so, the company is investing heavily in a variety of business applications, beefing up its security and collaborations teams and steadily acquiring rising competitors.Several of the top executives now leading Cisco have joined in the past year, which has been a turbulent one for the company.Demand for enterprise-networking equipment fell during the pandemic as companies turned to cloud solutions to support more remote workers, and Cisco saw five straight quarters of revenue decline before returning to growth in May.Now, the company needs to continue converting its long-standing customers into subscribers, providing reliable recurring revenue. At the same time, the company faces fierce competition from rising threats such as Cloudflare and established competitors such as Arista Networks.With this in mind, Insider has identified the top executives charged with transforming the company's business and fending off competition.Do you work at Cisco?
