Jabber Acquisition and Cisco Collaboration

Post by Doug Dennerline, SVP, Collaboration Software GroupGetting work done today requires us to navigate complex global networks of customers, colleagues and partners. Finding and connecting with key stakeholders has become an important part of our daily business process. Presence is now a critical component of any effective collaboration platform. Today’s acquisition of Jabber will enhance our existing IM capabilities and allow us to provide presence and messaging as network services. We will be able to provide extensible presence and messaging that can integrate with business process applications and easily adapt to a business’s changing needs. These capabilities will be available across our collaboration portfolio of Cisco Unified Communications, WebEx and Business Video.Jabber’s technology leverages open standards to provide a scalable architecture that supports the aggregation of presence information across different devices, users and applications. The technology also enables collaboration across many different presence systems such as Microsoft Office Communications Server, IBM Sametime, AOL AIM, Google and Yahoo!. We’re excited to have Jabber join the Cisco team, and I look forward to working together. For more information, I encourage you to listen to this podcast from Cisco’s Alex Hadden-Boyd.
