6 Changes Affecting Video Conferencing Today
Video conferencing is coming to the corporate mainstream, and here's why.
The business world is changing, driven by technology developments and workforce and workplace shifts. Collaboration is now front and center in the strategic plans of large and small enterprises, driven by the need to build better teams, speed product and process development, and share knowledge and experiences among team members. Video conferencing, in turn, is adapting quickly to meet a whole new set of customer requirements. In fact, video conferencing has expanded from its early days of being a standalone room-centered technology to being an integral part of personal communications software on desktop and mobile devices.
Here I highlight six trends and developments that are bringing video conferencing into the corporate mainstream.
Support for Scale
As time goes on, more and more individuals who have grown up with the Internet, mobile devices, and visual communications are entering the workplace. IT departments, in turn, are adjusting to meet the demands of this evolving workforce for greater mobility, flexibility, and more choice in how and where to work and which tools and devices to use for which tasks. As a result, video conferencing is being democratized -- no longer limited to senior executives, but now a tool available to product managers, business directors, and human resources experts.
