The hybrid work trend is taking off as employees balance working remotely and safely returning to the office. That’s why Cisco Systems has been strengthening the popular Webex platform, which quickly became a videoconferencing and collaboration favorite across the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cisco’s been busy -- to the tune of launching more than 1,000 Webex innovations in the last 12 months.
Customers are in the “third wave” of transformation since the start of the pandemic, which involves a mix of employees that will always be remote and those that are a blend of working in the office and at home. As such, businesses are thinking about how to properly address the new needs of their employees. Cisco sees this wave as a tremendous opportunity it plans to keep riding with the help of its partners, Jeetu Patel, Cisco’s executive vice president and general manager, security and collaboration business units, told CRN ahead of the WebexOne 2021 virtual event.
In support of the increasingly-hybrid workforce, here are ten new features, integrations, offerings and devices that Cisco unveiled at WebexOne.
