True collaboration solutions offer communications and collaboration capabilities on any device, at any time, and from anywhere. That’s been the case for some time, and never more true than now as customers embrace hosted collaboration as a key consumption and delivery model.
Here at Cisco, we’re constantly refining our efforts to make hosted collaboration not only easy for customers to use, but also easy for partners to sell. And I’m happy to report that Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) is delivering for Cisco partners on our promise of “no compromise” cloud collaboration.
You’ve probably seen the recent industry reports, including researcher Gartner’s favorable assessment of how HCS adoption is accelerating. But Cisco’s momentum with hosted collaboration is showing up all over the place. With a robust global network of 40 HCS partners, we are leading a market shift toward cloud through which we could see several million HCS seats sold and delivered by the channel this year alone.

Last week I spoke at an event and the definition of social media came up. Some people refer to social networking tools when they speak of social media while others refer to the notion of engagement and content on the web. I’m more of a “gelato in a cone” kinda gal. I view social media as engagement and content (gelato) that lives in some kind of an “online container”, such as a social networking site or another web platform (cone). I’m looking for both. I would even argue that customer experiences, whether social or not, could and should be connected to optimize their journey. For example, social content can live on your web site and your social networking sites and conversations can be prominently featured at your events.
Building on the “gelato in a cone” interpretation of social media, we (@CiscoSocial) will be hosting a social media event for the savvy marketer in San Jose on April 18 and 19. Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend this free event as we bring together some super bright practitioners for 2 days of live chats and presentations. The practitioners that are lending their expertise and time to our event come from Twitter, LinkedIn, Kaiser Permanente, Walmart, Adobe, SAP, Intel, VMware, Citrix, ABC, eBay, Salesforce.com, MindShare, Engauge, Percolate, BuzzFeed, Performics, Digby, Blinq Media, Cisco, and more.
