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? Does Cisco see SaaS as equal to WebEx Connect?

Collaborative Thinking: WebEx Connect: Tough Decisions Ahead For Large Enterprises

Collaborative Thinking

Ive talked to many investors on the web conferencing market over the years and have consistently said that the root value of WebEx was the MediaTone network - not the web conferencing service. WebEx Connect begins to solve that challenge. This has to be a concern of WebEx as well.

Collaborative Thinking: Meanwhile, Over At WebEx: A New Sheriff In Town

The 10 basic online tools every trainer and online facilitator should know

Joitske Hulsebosch

The better-known paid webinar tools are GoToMeeting, Webex and Adobe Connect. (photo by Kitty Terwolbeck ) There are lots of online tools that you can use for free or for very little money. Every week I try some new tools (like this week vialogues ) and honestly? Occasionally the high number of tools and possibilities make me restless. I have a tools list (both in a booklet and online in diigo) to try out and I never find the time or have the idea that I''ve tested enough tools.

GE Goes Box (What about Its Other Collaboration Tools?)

Michael Sampson - Currents

GE is using Cisco Quad / WebEx Social to power a social collaboration platform inside: “ GE recently launched Colab, its own social collaboration platform (using Cisco’s WebEx Social – formerly Quad – as the core engine) for 60,000 users to date (with a goal of reaching 100,000 users by year-end).

Who You Calling Virtual? Leading a Virtual Team

They complain: “The WebEx froze halfway through our session” or “All I can hear is buzzing on the conference line.” It’s not about the virtual, it’s about the team. Let’s get one thing out of the way: there’s no such thing as a virtual team.

Cisco Kills Cisco Mail - Will Focus on Quad and Video Instead

Michael Sampson - Currents

The WebEx Mail announcement is interesting, but not because of the product it represents. For example, users will be able to migrate an email discussion thread out of WebEx Mail and into Cisco ECP. Cisco held a big Collaboration event in November 2009 and announced a slew of collaboration products. One of those was a hosted email service, but barely 15 months later, the product has taken a bullet to the head: " Cisco Systems is dropping its hosted e-mail product.

Slideshare Launches Zipcast - Online Meetings for Everyone

Michael Sampson - Currents

This is going to hurt Cisco WebEx and Citrix GoToMeeting. Slideshare changed the dynamics of giving presentations - conference speakers could now leverage their conference work to reach a broader audience beyond their assigned meeting slot, and people who didn't get an invitation to talk at the conference could put their thoughts up alongside those who did. Last week, Slideshare took a big leap into online meetings , with the launch of Zipcast.

Introducing Cisco "Wave Connect"

Collaborative Thinking

When Cisco analyzed the Google Wave announcement, and all the surrounding media buzz, it could have quickly stated that it planned to extend its WebEx Connect platform to support Wave once it proved viable in the market. Cisco could leverage its Jabber acquisition (people, technology) and come out with Wave Connect as an extension of WebEx Connect. Cisco could also offer its WebEx Connect "cloud" to third-party Wave application servers.

Cisco: Great Expectations But "Where's The (Collaboration) Beef"?

Collaborative Thinking

The company has already made several moves in terms of acquisitions (WebEx, PostPath, Jabber) and strategy (describing a general direction regarding collaboration and SaaS/Cloud computing via WebEx Connect). It has also been busy integrating WebEx with its other assets (Unified Communications Manager, Telepresence, Unified MeetingPlace) – yes, the integration has not always been terribly deep but the work is ongoing and will continue to improve.

Cisco Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire Jabber

Collaborative Thinking

The solution will show up first in the WebEx world (e.g., Media Tone Network, WebEx Connect) and then follow with an on-premise implementation.

If it's Friday, it must be Adobe Connect

Endless Knots

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). Then on Friday, for another client who shall go nameless but whose name you know, another webcast, this time via Adobe Connect, topic = "Leading and Motivating Remote/Virtual Teams."

Facebook IM Integration

Collaborative Thinking

Third (and last) thought: Given Cisco's acquisition of Jabber and efforts with WebEx Connect - you would imagine integration with Facebook as well. First thought: If Meebo can integrate with XMPP systems - why can't Microsoft? Note: This is not the first time I've picked on Microsoft (and others) for ignoring XMPP-based IM. Second thought: Why hasn't IBM integrated with Facebook's XMPP-based IM system?

Open webinars

Learning Alliances

I’ve always found webinar software like WebEx , Elluminate , or GoToMeeting to be constraining and, because they try to be a “total solution&# they don’t play well with other uses or software. Because they’re popular they’re used in situations where they’re inappropriate. The Digital Habitats wiki, for example, doesn’t go into enough detail about their uses in community settings.
