Bringing virtual meetings to life
Polycom has launched its RealPresence Experience High Definition (RPX HD) telepresence solution in South Africa, available to local companies through Polycom distribution partner, Kathea Communications. According to Greg Darke, CEO of Kathea Communications “We understand the challenges of a dispersed workforce and of course, the importance of building personal relationships through effective communication media. The Polycom RPX HD solution meets this requirement. The solution’s truly innovative dynamics and design goes a long way to simulate a live meeting environment – while not bringing a new concept, but more a new reality to the world of telepresence.”
The complexity challenge
John Swainson, CEO of CA, in welcoming delegates to CA World, described the ongoing battle against complexity as the fundamental issue facing the industry and the leading obstacle holding back customers as they seek to get better bigger payback from IT. Swainson identified six disruptive technologies that he maintains are going to change enterprise computing forever, and will require a completely different approach to the management of those environments.
* Faster and more ubiquitous converged networks.
* Service oriented architecture or SOA.
* Social networking inside the enterprise.
* Cloud computing.
* An explosion of networked devices, from phones to sensors.
