Not Just Experiences, Rich Experiences

As I get ready to head to the airport to attend Cisco Live it has me thinking about the travel experience and how it relates to the collaboration experience. While some aspects of the travel experience can be quite pleasurable, there are many that aren’t – security screening, delays, BYOF (bring your own food), among others.

The same is true for collaboration. Just like every airline promotes similar amenities, many collaboration vendors promote “rich experiences”, especially for video, which sound very similar – HD, interoperability, standards, scalability. But the reality can sometimes be quite different: buffering, jitter, pixelization, dropped calls, and failed connections to name a few.

I believe experience matters and if we can provide consistent, predictable, rich experiences for users, then collaboration will flourish. This is what Cisco is focused on and I think we are far ahead of the competition. I encourage you to join me at Cisco Live on Monday when I talk not only about why Cisco is the better choice, but demonstrate live what it means for the experience and for you.

Come hear more at 3:30 p.m. PST on Monday, June 11 at my Collaboration and Video Solutions Keynote, Cisco Live!, San Diego, or in the Cisco Collaboration Virtual Experience on Tuesday, June 12 from 12:30-1:30 PST and available on demand afterwards.
