Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based
unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), and Meetrix, a cloud
enabler and integrator, today announced they have formed a partnership
to integrate their respective solutions to offer customers
cloud-delivered social video collaboration services. The partnership
integrates Meetrix’s unified communications cloud service for IBM
Sametime® and Polycom’s video infrastructure software (either
on-premises or cloud-delivered from a service provider) to help
customers securely and reliably connect, communicate, and collaborate
visually through their cloud-delivered social business app.
Meetrix’s flagship offering, Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime,
delivers “Sametime as a Service” – a service that manages the IBM
Sametime solution for customers from the cloud. Meetrix UC in the Cloud
for IBM Sametime can be deployed in hours for small and medium
businesses or, in the case of larger enterprises, a few days, giving
customers instant access to the benefits of IBM Sametime. The Polycom®
RealPresence® Platform, the most comprehensive software infrastructure
for universal video collaboration, enriches the social collaboration
experience by allowing IBM Sametime and IBM Connections users to
collaborate in secure multi-party or point-to-point video calls. The
RealPresence Platform software infrastructure, whether installed
on-premises or delivered as a service from the cloud, connects users
across any environment – immersive video suites, conference rooms, work
and home offices, and smartphones, laptops and tablets.
“We’ve offered integration with IBM Sametime for years but as more
customers – especially small and midsized companies – explore cloud
strategies, we’re excited to partner with Meetrix, a real innovator in
this space,” said Steve Pattison, Vice President of Business
Development, Polycom. “The Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime
service allows customers to deploy IBM Sametime almost instantly, and
when you integrate Polycom RealPresence video solutions into the social
business environment, customers can keep their upfront costs down,
leverage their existing investments, and quickly realize a return on
their investment from the increased productivity of face-to-face
“We are excited to team with a prestigious partner such as Polycom,”
said Lee Fawcett, Chief Executive Officer, Meetrix. “We’ve heard from
our customers that enterprise-class UC delivered from the cloud is
needed, and our joint solution, whether the video infrastructure is
on-premises or delivered from the cloud, offers the best-in-class UC and
video solution-set available today.”
The offering is available globally for existing Polycom RealPresence
Platform and Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime customers at no
additional integration or application cost. For more information on the
integration, please contact your local Meetrix sales rep or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetrix will be demonstrating the offering next week at TEAM Polycom
2013, Polycom’s annual sales and partner conference, in Vancouver,
Canada, February 4-7, 2013. In booth #41, Meetrix will show Meetrix UC
in the Cloud for IBM Sametime integrated with the Polycom RealPresence
Platform software infrastructure.
Separately, Polycom will be demonstrating its integration with IBM
Sametime at IBM Connect 2013, January 27-31, 2013, in Orlando, Fla. At
pedestals B21-B23, Polycom will demonstrate the RealPresence Platform
solution integration with IBM Sametime, featuring the Polycom®
RealPresence® Mobile 2.0 software application for Apple iOS and Android
devices and the newly announced Polycom® RealPresence® Group series. The
RealPresence Group series is the next-generation HD video collaboration
systems for budgets of all sizes which feature the new Polycom user
experience (Polycom® UX™ software), patent-pending Polycom®
SmartPairing™ technology (wirelessly connects Apple iPads to
RealPresence Group series and Polycom® HDX® systems), the industry's
best HD video and content-sharing (up to 1080p60 resolution), and
The Polycom RealPresence Platform
The RealPresence Platform software infrastructure provides reliability,
security and industry-leading scalability, and interoperates with the
broadest range of communications applications. The RealPresence Platform
software was recently enhanced to include the industry’s first
open standards-based SVC (Scalable Video Coding), with 3X HD
multipoint video call capacity for greater scalability, dramatically

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
