From classrooms to boardrooms, successful organizations are pushing toward a more flexible, team-centric model to enable a productive work experience. The rise of collaborative education and work models means students, faculty and professionals expect technology that delivers on-demand, and ultimately, closes our nation’s skill gap.
Meetings continue to be the engine of business, but it can be challenging to communicate while in different offices, on remote campuses, at home or on the road. People lose time switching between tools, overcoming glitches and experiencing delays. As a result, creativity stalls and teams miss opportunities. To be successful, schools and offices need tools that are built on the future of work – a platform that enables teams to act on opportunities, not lose them.
Cisco Spark is now Cisco Webex Teams
Over the past two years, Cisco has continued to evolve our cloud product portfolio to deliver services from a common, integrated platform. This approach helps us better serve schools and offices that are increasingly facing changing needs. The result is Cisco Webex Teams – a platform that prepares students for work, and offers today’s professionals a robust way to collaborate.
The cloud-based collaboration suite is a part of the Cisco Webex web conferencing platform and refreshes the Cisco Spark team collaboration app. Comprised of Webex Meetings, Webex Teams and Webex Devices, the Cisco Webex platform includes core collaboration capabilities, including video meetings, team messaging and content sharing.
With Cisco Webex Teams, instead of adapting to the way a platform operates, learners and professionals now have the flexibility to choose how they want to interact. Beyond simply allowing team members to engage, the platform embraces the learning and working style that already exists for teams. For example, some schools will choose to collaborate within a meeting, and others will choose tools to optimize workflow and keep assignments moving forward.
At Cisco, we believe the future of work starts with a great meeting experience and extends to connecting people, content and ideas intuitively and securely so teams can produce their best work anytime and anywhere. By adopting this new mode of thinking, leaders can bring their schools and offices into the future – one where technology is invisible, merely facilitating learning.
