We're in Boston this week for Enterprise 2.0, the industry's leading conference for social business collaboration. Today was chock-full of interesting panels and discussions.
Richard Foo, Collaboration Director for NIKE, Inc. kicked the day off with a fantastic keynote on social collaboration in the enterprise and how Nike's collaboration "story" isn't really a story at all, but a journey. He mentioned that Cisco's Collaboration tools are helping Nike be the leaders they are today in innovation.
P.S. We dig the tracksuit, Richard.
Next we headed off to a session on "Integrating Unified Communications and Social Business" with Cisco's own Senior Technical Solution Marketing Manager for Social Software, Mike Gotta (left, seated). In the session we learned about what it takes for UC and social to "play nice". Browse through all of our tweets @CiscoCollab for more details and quotes.
Executives from Cisco customer brands GE and Virgin Media participated in a discussion on how they make social collaboration work for their companies.
