Watch Replay: Welcome to the Cisco Collaboration Strategy and Announcements Keynote Live Stream

The One Time of the Year: Hear Cisco Collaboration Vision and Strategy -- What's Next for Cisco UC, TelePresence, WebEx, Jabber, and More

Throughout the year, the Cisco Collaboration Community hosts online events and activities to help you learn about our new announcements.  These are focused solely on educating our customers and prospective customers on what's new.  We typically have a concise introductory announcements overview webcast with demonstrations of the new solutions by Cisco leaders on the day of the announcement, a follow-on live webcast that dives deeper into the new solutions with Cisco product experts (typically 3-4 weeks after the announcement day), blogs by our Cisco leaders and opportunities to interact with your peers and Cisco experts through the discussion forum. 

In the fall, our approach is a bit different. Instead of the announcement webcast, we offer you the opportunity to hear our Cisco Collaboration strategy from the executive responsible for our Cisco Collaboration business. You also get introduced to new announcements briefly. Today is that day to join us as we stream this keynote live (or watch on replay after 11 a.m. PT today). Register Now.  Here is the description:

With collaboration you can empower your employees to engage in ways that help them evolve from “knowledge workers” into collaborative innovators for your business.

Please join OJ Winge, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Cisco Collaboration Technology Group, live on Tuesday, October 16, as he shares the latest updates to Cisco's Collaboration strategy with industry analysts, consultants, and partners at the Cisco Collaboration Summit in Los Angeles, California, and with you here online in our Cisco Collaboration Community.

Through this exclusive insider view, you will gain further insight into how Cisco is uniquely positioned to deliver the environments and experiences that help people work better together—in order to put the extraordinary within reach. Learn what’s next for Cisco’s industry-leading Collaboration portfolio, including Unified Communications, TelePresence, WebEx, Jabber, and Customer Collaboration solutions.

As part of that discussion, he will explain how cloud collaboration is integral to Cisco’s Collaboration strategy. As proof points, he’ll reveal exciting new cloud collaboration innovations. Discover how you can get Cisco’s industry-leading collaboration experiences delivered through flexible deployment options that meet your business and IT needs. Be among the first to hear these new announcements and learn how to accelerate collaboration quickly, reliably, and securely across your business.
