Headquartered in California, Polycom (NASDAQ:PLCM) offers Open standards based unified communications, HD video and voice conferencing solutions. The company has a market cap of $1.80 billion.

Ever since innovations have swept across the industry, integration has become the core need in the IT environment. Enterprises today rely on software which can best fit their business models. At Polycom, in keeping with the requirement for integration, we have unveiled the capability to integrate video collaboration technology into IBM care manager. The collaboration of our RealPresence video and voice collaboration products with the already implied platforms like IBM has enabled the practitioners in the health care sector to extend their care to the patients irrespective of time and location. This has been viewed as a huge gain to manage work-life in a better way and also deliver better patient outcomes on course in the health care industry. As technology helps in increased efficiency and work productivity, there is a potential for the same in the future in terms of integration, be it workflows or any service platforms.

Addressing Industrial Intricacies

The need is increasing for a perfect amalgamation of communication and collaboration into the normal workflows of an organization. People are using various tools in the same environment to collaborate, both within the company and outside the enterprise. For example, if HR personnel are using a recruitment technology software application, they often need to exit the HR-specific application in order to communicate with the candidate, whether by calling on the phone or perhaps initiating a videoconference. However, integration of video collaboration technology into workflow applications through API development is advancing and evolving, and there is a lot of momentum in this space. Polycom's integration services provide scalable, interoperable standards based infrastructure platform enabling media rich conferencing.
