about this episode
Today Jason sits down with Rowan Trollope, tech pioneer and SVP/GM of the Collaboration Technology Group at Cisco. Despite incredible tech innovations in every aspect of our lives, video conferencing continues to be clunky, with only 5% of conference rooms equipped with a setup that works. Rowan’s new, beautiful, and affordable product, Cisco Spark, aims to solve this problem once and for all, and get us to 100% video connected. Rowan shows us Cisco Spark in action. It’s simple (you don’t need IT) and affordable (less than $2K) with no numbers or codes to dial and no pairing needed. We learn how Cisco is using an open community of startups on top of this platform to usher those companies into the enterprise, how Rowan introduced startup innovation into a big company by acquiring three startups (which then made up the Innovation Team on Cisco Spark), why most acquisitions fail (and why that doesn’t matter), how the most requested Slack feature is integration with real-time video, why agility (not efficiency) is what matters in an exponential world — and how collaboration is essential for agility, why innovation needs to spread beyond Silicon Valley, how the on-demand economy is completely changing society, and so much more!
