Webex: Unstoppable Platform & Integrations
Unstoppable. This was the theme at Cisco’s annual IMPACT sales training event in Las Vegas last month. Over 17,000 Cisconians including our global sales teams, executives, and leaders from across the organization met to kick off the new fiscal year and establish a vision for the upcoming year.
In global sessions, Chair and Chief Executive Officer, Chuck Robbins, and EVP/GM, Security and Collaboration, Jeetu Patel, spoke to why “Unstoppable” was an appropriate theme. In the past few years, the only constant has been change. Those who can adapt and thrive in a changing environment continue to win and come out on top. The Cisco Webex Platform advantage is what keeps our team and our customer’s team winning and with uncompromised quality, security, and collaboration experiences.
As we look at current trends, clear patterns emerge that our integration partners already know. Hybrid collaboration is the future. We are solidly positioned to take advantage of this continued wave of hybrid work thanks to the innovative solutions that our integration partners have brought to life.
A key aspect of the Webex Platform Advantage is the expansive portfolio of integration offerings. Integrations, embedded apps, bots, and skills built on the Webex Platform drive potential and capabilities for Webex customers and extend the power of hybrid work.
In the spirit of platform-driven collaboration – we are thrilled to introduce a few of the newest innovations to appear in the Webex App Hub.
