Expanding Business Video: What IT thinks about

- July 13, 2012 - 1 Comment

Business video projects are highly visible and, if well planned, can showcase the strategic value of IT to your organization. Many organizations plan to eventually adopt multiple Business Video tools, such as:

  • Telepresence for collaboration, interviewing, and sharing centralized experts with customers;
  • Conferencing for team meetings and customer training;
  • Digital signage for advertising and employee news; and,
  • Internal web portals for training videos on demand.

When you begin considering just how using video in these ways can transform your business, it is important to understand the impact it will have on IT.  Engaging with a strong service partner like Cisco will help you to identify the architectural considerations as you plan, build and manage these projects. I recently had the chance to sit down with Roy Skillicorn, the Senior Director, Global Video Services within Cisco’s Services Organization, to discuss how he and his team work with customers.  Roy’s team is responsible for the services and services strategy for Cisco’s portfolio of Business Video solutions – TelePresence, Digital Media Systems, Emerging Video Technologies, and Network and Video Infrastructure.

In this video conversation, Roy shares some insights he and his team have gained as they formulate plans to assess and prepare infrastructure for business video deployments and the higher volumes of network traffic that result.
