More Cisco positioning
Warrior shared the video link with Doug Dennerline, senior vice president of the company’s software collaboration group, who said that, in comparison to Google, Zoho and other online collaboration tools vendors, “we understand the enterprise in a meaningful way.”
Dennerline, who is being allowed to emerge from under Chambers’ shadow, noted that Google’s Wave collaboration apparatus is a “validation” of Cisco’s WebEx Connect, which, like Wave, is a Web-based platform allowing developers to create collaboration tools. According to Dennerline, Cisco will continue to provide customers with enterprise-level versions of Web 2.0 applications. “We’re going to continue to reinvent ourselves in terms of how people interact,” he said.
