Businesses like yours rely on e ective internal and external connections
between employees to operate e ciently. But you might be discovering that
the old ways of conveying important business messages are no longer enough
for your sta . Relying only on telephone calls, email, and face-to-face meetings
alone could be now considered a competitive disadvantage. It also makes it
more di cult to attract top talent, and inhibits the communication speed most
enterprises now require.
The U.S. workplace is undergoing one of its largest transformations in the past 40 years. Although the magnitude of this evolution is difficult to notice when viewed in short time frames, by 2020, the percentage of employees in the workplace from the Baby Boom and Millennial generations will have completely reversed from the composition in 2010, with Millennials increasing to 50% of the U.S. workforce and Boomers decreasing to 25%. Because of their size, these generations already exercise significant influence on the workplace and will undoubtedly impact the nature of work well into the future.
Whether meetings are planned in advance or held when inspiration strikes, Cisco Spark helps you make the most of your team’s time. With continuous collaboration, meetings can feel like a natural part of your workday—not an interruption.
Your employees, customers, and partners need the ability to connect and collaborate, at any time, from any location—across time zones or simply across the conference table.
And those workplaces are expanding faster than ever, powered by mobile and cloud usage that makes virtual meetings essential. With scalable and secure voice, video, and content sharing, real-time collaboration can happen anywhere. Staying connected can lead to improved productivity and faster decision-making, as well as better customer service. But only if the technology offers a seamless experience and is intuitive enough to drive user adoption. While the need for better meetings is universal, not all conferencing tools are the same.
Choosing the wrong tool could actually decrease productivity by wasting valuable meeting time troubleshooting the technology, or by providing a negative experience that will deter users from embracing it. This is especially true in situations where poor meeting quality could impact
Digital transformation has arrived, and it’s creating unprecedented opportunities for companies of all sizes to become market leaders through the evolution of business processes and the creation of new products and services. Organizations that master digital transformation will see a dramatic increase in revenues and profitability by converging people, processes and technologies; those that do not will struggle to survive. Evidence of this is clear to see by looking at the churn in the biggest
companies in the world. For example, a Capgemini study found that since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 has disappeared through acquisitions or bankruptcies. The study also found that digital organizations control 70% of market share in all industries today. Therefore, making the shift to a digital business must be a top initiative for IT and business leaders.

Sure, ROI calculators help distill anecdotal evidence and analyze cost savings associated with travel, but it usually goes something like this: total hours spent traveling + cost of hotel, rental car, and food divided by the number of meeting hours. Well, at least that’s one version.
No matter the final number, the ROI total savings on cost of travel is only part of the story. Calculating the true ROI of video conferencing combines facts with real-life tangibles to help you understand and quantify your investment.

There is a tectonic shift in the way we work. We expect the same kind of intuitive, tactile experience with our workplace technology that we now take for granted with our smartphones, tablets and gaming systems. We expect our devices to talk to each other and update automatically. Virtual meetings should be as easy to set up as a video chat, and whatever we need to do our jobs should be as easy to tailor as a streaming music or video application.

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.
