WebexOne day 1 | Reimagining hybrid work

Yesterday was a big day for Cisco! With the kickoff of Day 1 of our second annual users conference, WebexOne 2021, where we announced groundbreaking new hybrid work innovations across the Webex ecosystem to help the industry reimagine #hybridwork from home, from the office, or from anywhere in between. This year we drank our own champagne by hosting #WebexOne on our very own events platform, Socio (now part of Webex).

Unveiling the hybrid work strategy

It was super exciting to see our CEO Chuck Robbins open WebexOne with an overview of the world of Hybrid Work, followed by EVP and GM of Collaboration and Security Jeetu Patel unveiling our Hybrid Work Strategy. Cisco EVP/GM of Enterprise Networking and Cloud Todd Nightingale shared a glimpse into transformative hardware innovations from Meraki, ThousandEyes and DNA Spaces. Webex Devices VP and GM Snorre Kjesbu announced new Webex devices that are unparalleled in the industry, including the game changing portable Webex Desk Mini.

Introducing the all-new Webex App designed for iPadOS 15

Webex and Apple have long been collaborators, and today we heard about the next phase of our amazing partnership. Jeetu Patel sat down with Apple’s Worldwide Business and Enterprise leader Thomas Tan for an engaging talk about security, enterprise, and the new native app we are bringing to market. Coming next month, the new Webex app will be natively integrated into iPadOS 15. Read more

Hybrid work reimagined with Webex by Cisco

We wanted our customers to be able to reimagine the possibilities of hybrid work, whether it is working from home, the office or anywhere in between. Our Webex Marketing team dazzled those who visited the 12 physical spaces they built, where audiences got a first-hand look at the newly unveiled Webex hybrid work innovations. Each space showcased how Cisco’s Webex technology portfolio — from Collaboration, Networking to Security — connects people in a diverse array of hybrid workspaces and elevates employee mental health, wellness, and productivity in this new era of hybrid work. Watch this video that captures the experience!
