One of the reasons I personally love our collaboration technologies is that I am a productivity nerd. I am a zero-inbox follower of David Allen’s GTD methodology that loves nothing more than tinkering with my ‘perspectives’ in Omni-Focus. It is a great time to be at Cisco and I am blessed to have this TechWiseTV show that affords me access to the best engineering minds and the latest technologies.
Video is making a huge splash this week at Cisco’s Collaboration Summit in Miami, Florida.
Analysts, Consultants and Cisco’s partner community are learning about how Enterprise Video is gaining a broader footprint, expanding from Video Communications, to also Video Content, the ability to capture, transform and share video to anyone, anywhere.
Attendees can see Enterprise Video in-person on the show floor through a variety of demos that showcase any-to-any video and how it is truly changing the Enterprise landscape as we know it today.
In addition to demos, attendees are experiencing firsthand how video can revolutionize a business through a technology tour of the JW Marriott Marquis. The hotel has a host of Cisco Collaboration and Video solutions including Cisco Digital Signs and Cisco Physical Security.
At the Cisco Collaboration Summit 2011 in Miami today, Cisco unveiled new solutions to help people collaborate more effectively in the post-PC era. This era moves past the limitations of “PC centric” communication and instead evokes a “people centric” approach where people can collaborate anywhere, anytime and on any device or application. The advancements Cisco is introducing today –from Cisco WebEx to Cisco Jabber — can change how people meet utilizing expanded cloud-based services, and can give workers an easy way to collaborate directly from Web applications they use every day, driving new levels of business productivity and competitiveness.
I sat down with Murali Sitaram, Vice President and General Manager of the Cisco Collaboration Software Group, at Collaboration Summit to learn more about these new announcements and how they fit into Cisco strategy.
