Questions and answers: Q: Will this [offering] work with IBM Connections on Premises?
A: Not from the licensing/offering perspective. However, via ISSC services we can deploy all of the integrations for On Premises Connections customers.
Q: Is the Cisco partnership a replacement for Sametime? If so, what is the future of Sametime?
A: Sametime On Premises is still our lead offering for On Premises customers. For Cloud, Cisco is a premium offering for those use cases wher IBM Meetings (Cloud) cannot satisfy the requirements. IBM Meetings is still part of our Cloud offering.
