Endpoints Promote Interoperability and Openness
Strategies and architectural solutions must be flexible enough to account for the unique communication and collaboration needs of both internal and external stakeholders. For example, the needs of a highly mobile sales force are likely very different than those of office-bound workers.
The Cisco collaboration architecture emphasizes interoperability and openness. It allows any device or application to use core collaboration services enabled through flexible deployment models—on premises, software as a service (SaaS), or a hybrid approach.
