Cisco Systems has added its presence to Yahoo!'s small business pages, setting up a "solution centre" that offers content on networking products and e-business technologies for businesses in a variety of industries.
Both companies are moving into the small and medium-sized business markets, which look to the web to find answers to questions on how to upgrade and improve their systems.
Cisco's Solution Center offers information on e-commerce and networking products for the health care, financial services and retail industries, among others, as well as offering companies an online business and technology assessment.
Yahoo! has taken a different track from some other portals, moving away from purely consumer and ad-driven offerings to premium services aimed at the small and medium-sized business markets.
For the most part, the move has been sucessful, allowing Yahoo! to carve out a niche and reap added revenue. Cisco's move on to the portral is aimed at snagging a piece of the growing market.
