#101-Cisco Spark Will Blow Your Mind

Cisco Spark is the solution today's teams need to get work done in the most elegant way possible. This one service takes care of messages, meetings, and calls. It does not matter whether you and your teammates are together or apart, Cisco Spark makes collaboration a comfortable experience. It has become the preferred platform for creating, sharing, and doing. The app is free which means you can get started right now and purchase a plan that suits you later. It comes with three wonderful plans that you will fall in love with, Plus, Advanced, & Premium. It comes with video meeting, screen sharing, messaging, calling, file sharing, whiteboarding, and much more. Let's see how Cisco Spark is different from others. Suppose, your team is working on a renewable energy consumption analysis (RECA) software solution. On Cisco Spark, you can create a space for the project and name it RECA. Within a space, you can have meetings and whiteboarding sessions. All the files, messages and conversations are stored in the space. New persons can be added to this space through their names or email addresses. Newly added persons can see previous conversations and shared files in the space. You can direct message a person if you want. The best way to access the important things on Cisco Spark is through the space activities menu. For instance, if you want to check out the files shared in a space, you can open the space activities menu and go to Files. In People, you can see the persons who are in the space. Cisco Spark has Teams feature which is used to categorize multiple spaces with a common theme. The Call section lists recent calls. Both Teams and Call are accessible from the left side navigation panel on the desktop and web versions. Security is not something you need to worry much about when you are on Cisco Spark. It has taken a balanced approach that is neither too restrictive nor too open. It offers "an end-to-end, encrypted cloud collaboration platform." On Cisco Spark, all your work will live in one place and you will definitely enjoy the unparalleled connected experience. The app is available on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, & Web.

If you are an enterprise, Cisco Spark Board is a must-have for your meeting rooms. It has wireless sharing, video conferencing, and whiteboarding, among others. Cisco Spark Board makes an otherwise boring meeting a delightful experience. If you go inside a meeting room, what will you see? You will see a white board, a lot of devices that are difficult to use, pens, color pencils etc. Designers of Cisco Spark Board observed this and decided to replace everything in a meeting room with a simple team tablet i.e. Cisco Spark Board. If you look at it, you will understand within a few seconds that it was built with an aim to make meetings more creative and productive. In the words of Kristian Magnus Ă˜stensen, Industrial Design Manager, Cisco, "[...] it is a self-contained product meaning that all the needed technology is integrated." It won the reddot best of the best award 2017.

That is not all. Cisco Spark has a feature-rich API. In Spark Haus by Cisco, people can discuss and work on interesting ideas.
