Harmonizing Hybrid Work with the Webex Platform Advantage
In the last few years, CIOs and IT decision makers faced the challenge of quickly supporting a work-at-home environment – often prioritizing near-term decisions over longer-term impact. Now, as many businesses realize that “work from anywhere” is here to stay, businesses have an opportunity to take a step back and reevaluate what they need from their collaboration experience. Key to that are platform capabilities like security, scalability, and centralized management. Selecting a collaboration platform is a relatively new endeavor, and Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research recently published their Collaboration Platform model to help decision makers evaluate tech providers.
The report helps CIOs through the balancing act of supporting their IT requirements while enabling end-user flexibility. In addition to the shift to remote work, companies are also facing different budget costs and planning for the unknown. Looking ahead, CIOs need to be prepared for a future of mixed work situations, in office and at home, and plan their collaboration solutions around having their employees be the most productive no matter where they are.
In this video, Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst with ZK Research, meets with Anurag Dhingra, CTO of Webex Platform, and reviews the latest findings from the ZK report, “Harmonizing Hybrid Work with the Webex Platform Advantage.” The report offers CIOs and IT managers an overview of how collaboration platforms drive business value and outlines the key requirements, including security and compliance, while ensuring flexibility for end-users. In the comparison, many of Webex Platform’s key advantages are highlighted such as its robust approach to centralized management, support for workflow configurability with embedded apps, and Webex’s unique hardware and software integration – enabling seamless work-from-anywhere scenarios.
