A plea for naming my favorite area...

Answered Question
Aug 14th, 2012

... currently called "Collaboration, Voice and Video".

Considering that

  • the "collaboration" (whatever that is) accounts for less than 1% of the questions.
  • that this term "collaboration" is not much used anyway by mighty Cisco marketing.
  • that it leaves people confused, most of them just want to make a phone call.

Can it be renamed (may be) "Unified Communications" or anything else that is easier to classify ?

I have this problem too.

Ok you wanted it...you got it. Sung to the tune of "A Hourse with No Name"

On the first part of my journey
I was looking at all the posts
There were routers and switches and phones and things
There was collaboration and scriptings
The first thing I know Paolo's making a buzz
And heads are in the clouds
The heat was hot and the group made a cry
But Paolo was breaking new groud

I've seen the community with a new name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the fourm you can remember your name
'Cause there always someone to make the answer sound sane
La, la ...

After two days the name change is done
My brain began to clear
After three days the name change has been fun
I was looking at the old name
And the story it told of a day that has gone by
Made me glad to think it was dead

You see, I've seen the community with a new name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the fourm you can remember your name
'Cause there always someone to make the answer sound sane
La, la ...

After nine days I let the posts run free
'Cause the new name had turned to glee
There were posts and answers and ideas and things
there was joy and happiness and a phone that rings
The community is a place with it's life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under Cisco lies a heart made of gold
and the humans will give much help

you see, I've seen the community with a new name
It felt good to be out of the rain

Hi Paolo,

Thanks for the feedback.  Let me bring this up with some folks internally to get their input.  Does anyone else have thoughts on Paolo's suggestion?

Cheers,

Dan

I would argee with Paolo's "Unified Communications", it is much more in line with what Cisco is calling it.

Also....when is the EEM scripting going prime time...I love it and I think others will once it is out there for general consumption.

Mike,

Not sure I follow your comment about the EEM Community going prime time?   It is open to everyone now and is listed on the CSC homepage.

Cheers,

Dan

Sorry...I thought the EEM was still beta......should have checked

Dan Bruhn Wed, 08/15/2012 - 07:58

Paolo and Mike,

Any thoughts on whether it would still be acceptable to have a "Unified Communications Applications" sub-community under the proposed "Unified Communications" Community?

Cheers,

Dan

Hey Folks,

Interesting discussion here

I do see the value of changing the "Community" name to something

more current/relevant. I don't think you can have a "Sub-Community"

name that is so close ie: Unified Communications Applications under

Unified Communications.

.

How about changing the "Sub-Community" to "Messaging" or something along

those lines??

Cheers!

Huff

PS: where have you been C-O-C-G?? We've missed you Mike! I'm surprised

you haven't penned a verse for the "name change"

Hey Rob...

Yeah been very busy...too many things so little time. I try and stick my half penney in when I can. I am not quite up to putting in two cents ....still learning.

A verse for the name change...ummmm! Wheels are a turning.

Hey Mike,

So, so, GREAT! Why do you work with mundane "network" things when you have

such a talent...so, so GREAT!

Thank you for brightening our day my friend

Cheers!

Huff

PS: love the original of that song as well....brought back some fond memories!
