Cisco Spark is Dead

by Dave Michels

Cisco just wrapped up its Collaboration Summit (Summit de Webex). Below is a short video with some of my key points.

I will soon published a full report that captures all of the announcements and my thoughts on their strategy.

Key Themes

  • Cloud-first: Teams, meetings, devices, and security .
  • End-to-end: Experience, Management, Encryption
  • Migration: Webex is the future, but nothing is actually coming to an end.
  • Security: Encryption, Compliance
  • Open: Integration with other apps and ecosystems, and some standards.
  • This was a hard one to summarize. There was a lot here. The Collaboration Team has been hard at work. The Collaboration summit itself was a two day event. Several of us are remaining in Phoenix for another day  for a deeper dive on Cisco’s Customer Care portfolio.
