A lot of companies are not willing to surrender their communication platform for video conferencing and chat to the huge corporation clouds. So far, there haven’t been many alternatives to Teams, Zoom or Slack. From August 5th, that will change!
Sametime V11.5 will be launched on that date, and while the details aren’t revealed yet, this version will contain a full setup for video conferencing, web meetings, chat and workflows. And you will be able to run it on premise, or via your local HCL Business Partner’s cloud solution.
Personally I’ve been on a beta test team, and there were no technical glitches or difficult plugin downloads when I started web meetings. This looks very promising.
Today HCL sent out an invite. I’ll quote:
Over the last few months, we have been tirelessly developing and innovating on our Sametime product, and we believe that this latest version with a new, sleeker user experience (and much more) is not only what you need for your current workforce and customers— but it’s also going to raise the bar on what you come to expect from an enterprise grade meeting and chat platform.
We are set to release it to existing customers and business partners — and have all pricing available — on July 9, 2020 and ready for download on Flexnet. Any new customer can buy it via our Business Partners and sellers.
Our global launch date has been set for August 5, 2020 at 10 am ET. This will showcase the incredible new capabilities and kick off an exciting new vision for the future. We need your help to promote this important global launch.
