Cisco to launch collaboration strategy

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

Cisco will shortly be launching its collaboration strategy, and will be changing its “Human Network” advertising campaign (a good branding exercise for Cisco) to reflect a more collaborative theme. The Cisco strategy, we believe, will be to link its collaborative and telepresence offerings and social network tools into a corporate service ecosystem that Cisco will provide online as a service and not as a product. This new venture may create some clashes with carrier customers that have their own plans in the area, but we believe Cisco also plans to sell service through carriers, as Microsoft does with its CSF.

    Great info. Well, I agree. It is funny to see how all companies are trying to steal each other market share and that's maybe for good since it is pure Capitalism. That's how it should be except one thing ... there should be some rules. Right now it seems like we have 10 giants who may use financial power and dominate technology market easily but that will lead to failure bacause nothing comes for free. They may expect big downside of demend and that will drive the whole industry to the very bottom. Also the problem in today's technology is that too many options and too much information. Even if you use consulting firm or services to pick all the right tools and predict all possible or impossible cases still you may end up with something that may fail. Sharepoint is very useful product and has many advantages and it may pay if you have budget to develop it and maintain it. In my company 2 admins and 3 developers permanently working on it. So it is not solutions for small or even mid sized business. Sure there are many companies out there but if you look at cons and pros you will find glitches in all of them. Nothing is perfect. We cannot say we go that way or another unless we see where we are and then where we ended up. Virtualization is the key in all spheres. Great info. Indeed. I would suggest also to look at one link I have found useful. This is the only one hybrid Virtual Collaboration system that can run virtually anywhere. Most importent it is not hardware dependent in any aspect except maybe storage space. But even there you can just use any flash drive or external drive to run this nicely developed product. Go to this page and click on all the comparison reports for Project management software, content management system, video conference and Team Foundation server comparison [for those who need version control and document aduting options].

This company also provides video conference which has built-in secure file transfer and other file unitilies such as Video and Image converters. This system is FREE for nonprofit, charity organizations and people with disabilities.. Its also FREE for non-commercial use. I tried it and pretty happy about it. Great collaborative CRM system for a great price. [A href="http://www.workcollaboration.com/"]http://www.workcollaboration.com/[/A]
