It’s that time of the year, folks! We’re taking a look back at 2016 to reminisce about our favorite WebEx moments on social media, on our blog, and in the news. From big product announcement to pranks on Twitter, these were definitely some moments to remember.
Gartner names Cisco a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Web Conferencing
There’s a reason WebEx is trusted to host 20 million meetings each month!
For the 8th time, Cisco WebEx was recognized by Gartner, the world’s leading IT technology and research and advisory company, as a leader in the Web Conferencing Magic Quadrant. Gartner reports that Leaders in this year’s Magic Quadrant have robust, scalable products with a wide range of features, a large installed base, acceptable financial performance and good distribution.
This is a huge honor and we couldn’t be more proud of our team for making WebEx one of the top tools in the industry. View the full report here.
Experts schooled us on productivity
This year, we launched a webinar series featuring experts from a range of disciplines. We wanted to bring our followers some valuable lessons on staying productive and make the most of collaboration tools. The results were awesome.
Big thanks to all the presenters who shared their expertise during fun, interactive presentations! If you missed the webinars this year, you can catch up on webinars hub and follow along in 2017.
Cisco Spark kept us talking
We love the collaboration WebEx enables, and Cisco Spark lets you do even more.
As the all-inclusive platform for everything teams need to message, collaborate, meet and call, Cisco Spark “sparked” its own news during the year. Taking center-stage as Cisco’s chat platform, Cisco Spark news at Cisco’s Partner Summit revealed new capabilities that had the industry buzzing in 2017.
Look out for more news in January.
You fell for it on April Fool’s Day
Last but not least, our favorite moment on social media this year had us laughing out loud. On April Fool’s Day, we “launched” WebEx, a phony set of filters to help you “enhance your presence” during a video conference.
All jokes aside, we know our followers are online meeting pros who know how to put their best face forward. We just can’t resist a good prank every now and then.
Here’s to another great year in the books! Look out for more collaboration, innovation and fun in 2017.
