Inside Cisco IT

Since I last blogged on the topic of business apps for the enterprise, much has happened at Cisco. As you know from reading my earlier updates, we are developing an entire range of helpful and easy-to-use business apps – powerful applications that accelerate employee productivity. We’ve made much progress since June.

For openers, we’ve announced a new name for our productivity-enhancing apps, called Cisco EasyApps @Work internally. And to make it easy for employees to identify the apps most relevant to them, we’re launching apps based on an employee’s role, organization or location. 

Several new role-based apps for our managers and engineers are now available. These include the following new and enhanced EasyApps:

And we have also targeted a bundle of travel apps for our travel-heavy road warriors which are designed as super time-savers.  These include:

For all employees, we also offer My Employment Info – this app allows workers to access their Cisco employment data related to their employment history, all in one place.

The more I talk to customers, the more interest I’ve found in the area of enterprise apps.  So, a few words of guidance:   

Simplify the apps process. Make it easy for your employees to find apps and services that can simplify business processes and increase productivity by creating your own app center where you can house a combination of your own and third-party applications.

At Cisco, we think it’s important that we don’t micromanage our employees’ need to collaborate in a mobile way – the corporate app store will not be the only app repository that employees can pull from. Instead, the vision for the corporate store is to be the source for employees to find recommended applications. Here they can tailor their mobile experience with varying apps, and can use them to be more efficient and productive – whether it’s submitting business trip expenses from an airport or taking a Jabber video call from the sidelines of a soccer game, or continuing that WebEx meeting as you shift from one location to another.

Happy Collaborating!

  1. I am a Cisco employee and I used the My Expense application for the first time last week. It was so easy and fast!

    My Employee Info is really useful as well. I used to have to navigate to several different locations within our intranet to find my benefits, stock or performance information. Now I just go to My Work tab in WebEx Social and there is all of my Employee information at my finger tips.

    I’m so excited about Easy Apps that I have been sharing them with my colleagues as well. Keep up the great work team!
