Cisco announces that Cisco Quad is now available in a hosted managed version

By • Jun 24th, 2011 • Category: Blog

Cisco has partnered with ACS, Logicalis, Alphawest, and Capgemini to provide a hosted managed version of its social collaboration solution, Cisco Quad.

Despite what people say, it’s never too good to be late to the party. Cisco Quad is the newest addition to the Enterprise Social Networking market, and Cisco is the latest big player to throw its hat into the ring. The problem is that the Enterprise Social Networking market is already mature with well established players. IBM and Microsoft have already captured large portions of the market and don’t look like they’ll give it up, especially to Cisco’s new solution which hasn’t yet gained any traction. Offering Cisco Quad as a hosted service is a step in the right direction, but it’s probably too late for Cisco to make any waves in the Enterprise Social Networking market at this time.
