And the companyâ€™s thousands of customers understand why WebEx is the proven technology leader, with first-class global support.
Following the Cisco acquisition of May 25, 2007, WebEx products are being integrated into Ciscoâ€™s expanding portfolio of next-generation collaboration products and services based on Web 2.0 technologies. WebEx remains committed to advancing its innovative technology without sacrificing the reliability and security that enables on-demand collaboration.
When it was founded in 1996, WebEx began with a vision: to use the web to bring people together from around the world to collaborate and work collectively on creative ideas and business.
In the beginning, emerging digital communications standards, such as ISDN and Switched Digital Service, led to the development of video conferencing, a market which took off. Users were excited by the possibilities of extended learning, keynote events, and multimedia presentations combining live video and audioâ€”without the time and expense of traditional conferences.
WebEx worked to overcome the common barriers of the user conferencing software available at that time. Most users found it painstakingâ€”if not impossibleâ€”to customize these applications into a useful solution to meet their business needs. Also, video conferencing tended to focus on people and their facesâ€”relegating to a minor role the information they were trying to convey. The result: a lot of conferencing software was sold, but very little was used.
WebEx took an early, decisive leadâ€”where it remains todayâ€”in the commercial web conferencing market with a robust solution that provides the spontaneity and interactivity of face-to-face meetings. With WebEx, users share presentations, applications, documents and desktops, with full-motion video and integrated audio, all in a rich-multimedia environment.
Today, organizations use WebEx meeting applications across many industriesâ€”including financial services, high-tech, healthcare, pharmaceutical, communications, manufacturing, government, and management consultingâ€”and support every stage of both customer and product lifecycles, driving results in sales, marketing, fulfillment, product development, manufacturing, training, and support with real-time collaboration.
