Spark and Skype for BusinessFree Download
I just spent three days at the Cisco Collaboration Summit where the company unveiled a fairly significant vision. It was far too broad to attempt to capture in a 2Pager. In a nutshell, If Cisco delivers on its its expanded service for Spark, which only launched about a year ago, it will become a viable solution for:
- Enterprise Messaging
- UC cloud-hybrid
- Conferencing (Audio, Video, and Web)
- Platform for IoT
- Platform for developers
And who knows what else - reminds me of the Thneeed in the Lorax.
Cisco's grand vision of world domination via Spark is a lot to process - Cisco Spark could be a competitive alternative to such divergent companies as Vidyo, 8x8, Zoom, and Twilio.
However, it was Skype for Business that people were thinking about. How does Spark differ from Skype for Business was the most common question in the conversations I overheard. Even that is a tough one for a 2Pager, but I made an attempt anyway.
