Cisco WebEx Connect Questions

Collaborative Thinking

Predictions: WebEx Connect will need a strong IdM (Identity Management) play and will do so either through expanding what exists within PostPath or through an acquisition or a deep partnership. The cloud-based identity service will be key to expand on social networking aspects that will emerge around WebEx Connect. What about offline - does WebEx Connect implement Dojo Offline which is based on Google Gears? Integration. Does Cisco see SaaS as equal to WebEx Connect?

For some time I've pointed out the need for the Cisco groups responsible for enterprise collaboration (including unified communications, mobile, WebEx, etc.) The study findings indicate that the business world is at the early stages of adopting these tools and in the process of identifying key challenges, such as the need for increased governance and IT involvement, which may impact the integration and adoption of these new platforms and technologies.

Thumbs-Down: The concern I have here is that the total cost of ownership is not clearly outlined, a reasonable TCO model would establish a timeline (say 3 years) and include the total costs, including various weighting factors for planning, operational support, integration costs, help desk, change management, and so on.
