Welcome to the first episode of a podcast show where guests in the collaboration space join in on discussion of technologies, concepts, partnerships, trade shows and more. The show is hosted by Corey Moss.

The guests on this episode are:

Joan Vandermate – Head of Marketing, Collaboration Business Unit at Logitech

Jordan Owens – VP, Americas at Pexip

Steven Erickson – Executive Director, Microsoft Alliance at Polycom

The discussion begins with each guest talking about their company, and then the focus is on Microsoft Ignite, where those who attend “meet innovators and explore tomorrow’s tech.” The guests discuss their latest products, solutions and innovations introduced prior to and at the show, along with their Microsoft partnerships, Skype for Business, Office 365 and Microsoft Teams – which will be replacing Skype for Business as a main meeting tool for Office 365 customers. *

Collaboration as a discussion on the whole becomes the followup where cloud is also addressed, as well as partners and end users, and each guest gives their take. Finally, each person talks about the end of year roadmap for their company.

An excellent discussion on videoconferencing, collaboration, and one of the year’s major tech trade shows where collaboration is a major focus, along with other key technologies (this year mixed reality, AI and quantum computing).
