January 30, 2012 by Julie Bort via ConferencingNews.com -- Cisco is putting the finishing touches on a project called "Futurama" that it will launch later this year.
Futurama is a new interface for several of Cisco's collaboration products that lets them work better together and with the likes of Google Apps, Android, and iPhones, Macs and Windows PCs, reports Network World.
Instead of letting employees using Gmail fire up a Google+ Hangout or a Skype session, Cisco's tools would have them go to a more secure conferencing site that could also include links to the company's internal web conferencing and other secure applications.
"We want to make these solutions as easy to use as Apple products, and as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn," Raj Gossain, vice president of product management of Cisco's Collaboration Software Group, told Network World.
