If it's Friday, it must be Adobe Connect

All of the meetings we've had with Cisco of late have taken place in Webex, culminating in the extravaganza last Tuesday that combined Telepresence, Webex, and Cisco IPTV. All of a sudden, the webcams, used principally for family connections for years, are workhorses (so to speak).

Cisco and Jive plan to progressively link these products at a technology level so they work in a more integrated fashion.
