Cisco offered $3 bn for Tandberg today – and I think it’s a good deal for them. They bought:
Integration of Tandberg will have challenges. Cisco has not been able to open their video systems up to enable easy interoperability to the market so there is clearly tough work to be done to bring this promise to fruition. In order to rationalize and advance the video business Cisco will need to enable work teams separated by 9 time zones to cooperate and work together. In anticipation of this, the combined entity plans to install a unified management team in Europe, where they will be able to rapidly put together strategies and plans.
The assets in Cisco’s control post acquisition would now have the ability to push the market through 2 transition points.
What do you think of the offer? and when do you think these market trasitions will occur? Do you think a completed acquisition will hasten the development of a robust B2B Unified Conferencing market?
