Gartner has positioned Cisco as a leader in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions.
Just released, the 2017 Gartner evaluation brings together web conferencing and group video system markets under a single grouping. Gartner’s definition is clear but comprehensive: “Meeting solutions blend communications, collaboration and content to enable real-time group work from anywhere.”
We agree. Integrating meeting technologies to remove complexity and be more intuitive is a key focus area for Cisco. And that’s exactly how we intend to continue to evolve our meeting solutions, including Cisco WebEx, Cisco Spark, and Cisco Meeting Server. We’re committed to providing you with the solutions you need, whether for cloud, on-premises, or hybrid deployments, along with a portfolio of endpoints you can tailor to your needs.
We believe our solutions deliver a powerful feature set and provide a consistent user experience across platforms, from mobile to desktop to meeting-room systems. Support for standards contributes to our strong partnerships with system integrators. These companies rely on the quality and dependability of our products to give their own customers the best results.
Gartner evaluated a variety of criteria for each of the 14 vendors in the report. Cisco is positioned highest and furthest for its “Ability to Execute” and “Completeness of Vision” for meeting solutions.
Delivering intuitive, easy-to-use meeting solutions is a top priority for Cisco. And we are seeing great traction with customers with over 50 billion annual meeting minutes and double-digit growth in mobile meeting users.
The technology all around us is constantly changing, so your experience and expectations are too. We appreciate the partnership with our customers because your feedback and insights are a big part of how we continually enhance our meeting solutions.Our engineering and operations teams focus on constant improvement. Over the last few months, we’ve done a lot of work to enhance the user experience, including:
- Enhancing one-click and mobile meeting experiences
- Helping you eliminate distractions with background noise detection
- Making meeting rooms smarter with analytics, intelligent views, and presentation options
And we’re not done yet. We’ve been sharing how we’ll deliver even more value to meetings. Our meeting strategy includes:
- Adding more analytics and artificial intelligence for even more powerful experiences
- Expanding meeting options, including advanced speech and face recognition to simplify meeting interaction
- Exploring how we can bring virtual reality into the meeting experience via Cisco Spark
