In this event, we will hear from Christopher Connolly of Anthem, who will share how he is approaching the future workplace, which in his eyes is inevitably a hybrid one. So how do you plan for that? What do offices and meeting rooms look like? As a Collaboration Architect, Christopher will highlight how collaboration devices such as our Webex Devices are ESSENTIAL and give insight on how he is bringing his organization up to speed to properly adopt the technology. We will also hear how you can use Webex Devices to gain a detailed insight into meeting room usage and how you can use devices to prove ROI.
Christopher Connolly has over 20 years of experience in IT with the majority of it focused on collaboration. He has held a variety of roles as both a customer and a partner/reseller at organizations of all sizes giving him a well-rounded viewpoint. In his current role at Anthem he officially serves as the collaboration and digital workplace architect while better being known as an evangelist for changing Anthem’s culture through intelligent and sometimes creative use of technology.

Utilizing every workspace, from Hoddle to large spaces will definitely enhance people's connectivity and collaboration inside and outside the organizations, and increase productivity. I would love to hear how also Cisco Devices can protect the investment and increase the ROI.
Unanswered questions from today's event:
Q: Will these features be available for on-prem devices as well as cloud registered devices?
Q: We have our codecs registered to CUCM, I assume we will not have to register them to control hub(the cloud) to get the room statistics you just talked about?
Q: When will the Meetings client be able to see device face recognition name labels? As you say we want people WFH to have the same benefits as people in the meeting rooms/
Many of the services we talked about during the session are Cloud services, i.e Mazemap, and it is clear that going forward more capabilities will be given to customers who have everything connected on the cloud. That being said, Webex Devices registered on-prem can also leverage Appspace, Mazemap and sensor analytics services when using Webex Edge for Devices. Webex Edge gives access to Webex Cloud services while maintaining the call registration on-prem.
