Forward Leaning Leaders are driving organizational transformation by enabling collaboration solutions into applications and business processes for mission critical benefits such as those listed here. The reason for IBM and Polycom working on this issue is simple. We intend to create a solution that is easily and seamlessly integrated into everyday workflows, including unified communication solutions. This will allow users to call from any device, anywhere, to any location Tip: as opposed to reading the list, pick on in advance that you believe your audience will relate to and use this slide as an opportunity to engage them in a brief interaction to confirm their areas of interest.
This is the future direction of how we will re-name our RealPresence Platform line as a branded term. These words would appear in print as the full name, but everyday language would be Collaboration Server….Resource Manager… terms almost anyone can remember and understand, including customer-facing teams, partners, service providers and customers. You can see the mapping of these names to our existing names. Collaboration server to RMX….Resource manager to CMA… We are not changing names at this time, but are in process of building a comprehensive and well-thought-through plan to migrate to these new names over the course of 6 months.
