IBM Connect 2013 - Third Day

A long day, starting with a very cool General Opening Session - announcements, demos... (here), lots of people on the Polycom booths, and THE Social Communication Strategy and roadmap session by John Delpizzo and Brian Ricker.

We have heard the vision of IBM in term of the future of IBM Sametime and the notion of Social Communication, and we have seen cool demos.

My two key elements in the roadmap:
  • New rich communication services via Multipoint audio & video capabilities, support of Polycom SVC-based hardware end points.

  • Sametime Meeting on Mobile with Audio/video and telephony integration

Sametime Meeting with multiple video stream
That's cool, isn't it !!!!! I'm so looking forward to playing with it.

The conclusion of this day was the "French Party" - the place to be where you speak french at IBM Connect...
