How many of the participants are remote or traveling? How many actually involve a conferencing solution for content share or video? Did the meeting start on time? As obnoxious an exercise as this might appear, it’s not in vain and done to simply illustrate just how much of our time is consumed in meetings. While some meetings are better than others - simply put meetings are where we get things done, collaborate with our team, interface with our customers; you get the point.

I guess the point is that whether you really think about it or not automation does play some part of your daily life.

In this article, we look at one of the solutions in the meetings experience toolbox, Cisco Webex Edge, and discuss what is new and exciting with this technology.
