Earlier this year we announced the addition of the Cisco WebEx conference application to our collection of services, tools and resources. Last month, Cisco announced two improvements coming this summer: (1) WebEx Meetings will change to provide a video experience first so you can automatically join meetings via video, and (2) WebEx Teams, a redesigned collaboration tool previously known as Cisco Spark, will integrate with WebEx Meetings to provide a rich virtual collaboration space.

A key benefit of this convergence is the launch of a simplified combined platform with a common set of integrated features. Collaboration with team members, before and after live WebEx meetings, will soon be part of a seamless experience with a new unified interface. This change will enable UIC WebEx users to access WebEx Teams.

We will provide online documentation explaining how this works as we receive more information from Cisco, and will keep you updated on the WebEx and Cisco Spark convergence as WebEx Teams rolls out.
