Creating the Next Generation of Collaboration Experiences

March 12, 2014 - 10 Comments

If you’ve been following Cisco Collaboration recently, you’ve probably noticed we’ve been changing things up…and I don’t mean just a little. Truth is, we’ve been busy completely reimagining collaboration and setting the foundation for a revolution in the industry.

We’re listening to users who have told us that they are frustrated with today’s tools and, more importantly, these tools limit their ability to work the way they want.  We are building collaboration tools that are simple, elegant and beautiful. Tools that get out of the way, reduce friction and let you work the way you want.

I am proud of the technology we announced today.  It represents the largest single change to Cisco’s collaboration portfolio since the initial launch of TelePresence and every stitch of it meets the “new Cisco Collaboration standards”—meaning you will love the attention to detail and want to use it.

We have an uncompromising approach to the user experience that includes the delivery of incredible video experiences from the boardroom to the browser and all the spaces in between. Cisco’s affordable endpoints for spaces and organizations of all sizes and all use cases will make that happen. And when we can get these experiences into the hands of users, amazing things will occur.  We truly believe that these next gen tools will let users work the way they want to work.

As proud as we are of these new offerings, here’s the very best part: this is just the beginning. Expect great things from Cisco Collaboration. Excellence is the only acceptable answer when it comes to user experience.  So, stay tuned!

Come by our booth during Enterprise Connect and see these new products up close.  If you can’t make it to Florida, join me virtually for my keynote address.  And for our partners – please read more from Richard Mcleod about how today’s announcements will improve sales and business outcomes for your customers.
