  1. Hi Om

    I am a great fan of collaboration and the virtualization of collaboration (in fan my entire blog is dedicated to it) however the deeper I get into working with virtual teams, virtual communities and virtual networks the more I realise that it has almost nothing to do with technology and almost all to do with people issues.

    I wish Cisco luck!

  2. Cisco is an incredible company. Wondering in which silo mobile falls into (my guess collaboration).

    The WebEx platform will end up competing with Salesforce.com thus mobile would be a natural extension since I also believe the LinkSys One offering will become a hybrid model (hosted & premise) as well. The piece that’s missing is a CRM application that that could boil down to SugarCRM or Zoho.
    “Complete” Unified Communications is the holy grail.

  3. As a lay person I can easily understand video traffic is growing. I watched the SNL clip on Sarah Palin by Tina Fey at least 3 times on the internet.

    Collaboration is also something I can understand. When I work from home I am usually using the phone and computer. Phone for voice, and computer for presentations.

    Virtualization seems very important in the data center and on the server side. That covers the 3 buzz words video, collaboration and virtualization.

    If I let my imagination run wild, I can think of a CISCO IP phone which streams video of the person on the other end, email, as well as presentations. That would go a long way in the human collaboration. The blade servers from CISCO however did not fit into this picture. Would be very interested to understand why they would build blade servers.
