Webex Meetings

Cisco is one of the best service and solutions providers out in the market currently. Their product, Cisco Webex Meetings, is a great tool that can help connect colleagues together who can't meet with one another physically. It also is a great tool for collaboration between various numbers of people. Another situation where Cisco Webex Meetings is well suited is if there is a training session needed; Cisco Webex Meetings is a great platform to host that.

It is great if you're a medium to large-scale operation that is heavily reliant on always having fresh content deployed to your web properties. It is particularly great if you need to localize your website in different countries (landing pages, languages, etc). It can save you a lot of time that would otherwise be spent maintaining separate websites, and deploying often redundant content to the different websites. Every human touchpoint has the potential for error.It is not great if you just need a static website, and you aren't deploying more than just a simple blog. It's not great if you don't have senior-level developers to maintain the site. If you're the type of company that needs your website to be "done" then you've come to the wrong place. A Drupal 8 website is itself a living organism that requires an ongoing commitment.

  • Lots of features.

  • Drupal is great at managing any amount of content, and any type of content. Its flexibility and customizability are two of its greatest strengths.
  • Drupal isn't just a CMS, Drupal lets you build the CMS that website editors will be using. Its backend customization and admin features are awesome and are being expanded by the community all the time.
  • There are thousands of contributed modules and themes freely available. Not only is Drupal open source, but all the best modules and themes people have built are available for free as well!
  • Drupal's community is big, prolific, and welcoming. Not only can you use other's community contributions, but the community is always happy to help others building their own Drupal sites or custom modules and themes for the rest of the community. If you ever get stuck, the forums or Drupal Slack are incredible resources for assistance.

Cons

Webex Meetings

  • Better integration with other platforms such as Panopto (currently only one video source can be saved instead of one explicit presenter and one explicit content window
  • Needs a bigger marketplace similar to Zoom
  • Virtual backgrounds needs improvement and should include motion backgrounds
  • Consolidate all the different products (Webex Meetings, Event, Training, Support centers) into one product
  • Allow fullscreen video of presenter video on secondary monitor

  • There are certain limitations in the amount of information that can be passed from Drupal to Salesforce, specifically in areas of how long viewers are on a particular page.
  • Drupal uses up a ton of memory space, due to how large our sites are, it has been costly to add in the required hardware.

Cisco Webex Meetings is a platform that consistently performs well and outperforms some of the other solutions that we have used, such as Zoom. It is user friendly and helps our organization accomplish the goal of connecting with external contacts to conduct meetings and share information

The time and money invested into this platform were too great to discontinue it at this point. I'm sure it will be in use for a while. We have also spent time training many employees how to use it. All of these things add up to quite an investment in the product. Lastly, it basically fulfills what we need our intranet site to do.

Usability

Cisco Webex Meetings is a really easy-to-use solution. Cisco has a mentality linked to joining meetings: one button to push. There is always the same big green button that appears everywhere—on invitation emails, in the calendar, on videoconferencing devices, on the application in our phones and tablets. One button and the meeting is started. Anyone can start a meeting.The solution is therefore minimally demanding for IT teams, and even easy to set up and support for smaller environments where there simply isn't an IT team.

It's a great CMS platform and there are a ton of plugins to add some serious functionality, but the security updates are too complex to implement and considering the complexity of the platform, security updates are a must. I don't want my site breached because they make it too difficult to keep it up to date.

Has always been very reliable with only a couple of issues in the past year. Video and audio quality is always very good, however the platform does struggle with many people on video and audio (could also have something to do with computer bandwidth). We had over 50 people on a video call and found the platform to crash repeatedly, however for something like this I would recommend leveraging Webex events

Drupal itself does not tend to have bugs that cause sporadic outages. When deployed on a well-configured LAMP stack, deployment and maintenance problems are minimal, and in general no exotic tuning or configuration is required.For highest uptime, putting a caching proxy like Varnish in front of Drupal (or a CDN that supports dynamic applications).

Overall performance of loading the application is fast. On occasions, the meeting can take time to load in the browser version. The app usually loads faster both on desktop and mobile. Integration with MS Outlook is available. While I have not noticed [...] reduced performance within Cisco Webex Meetings because of this integration, I have seen delays in MS Outlook when adding the meeting link to calendars

Drupal page loads can be slow, as a great many database calls may be required to generate a page. It is highly recommended to use caching systems, both built-in and external to lessen such database loads and improve performance. I haven't had any problems with behind-the-scenes integrations with external systems.

The response time is very fast via email. Most of the time, they also follow-up with a call but I usually need my questions answered via email.I think their support emails are bit bland and impersonal. They may think it's a good idea to list all applicable managers in their emails but that's not really all the important to me. In fact seeing so many people listed makes me wonder if I'd have to contact someone else to get my question answered or problem resolved.

As noted earlier, the support of the community can be rather variable, with some modules attracting more attraction and action in their issue queues, but overall, the development community for Drupal is second to none. It probably the single greatest aspect of being involved in this open-source project.

I was part of the team that conducted the training. Our training was fine, but we could have been better informed on Drupal before we started providing it. If we did not have answers to tough questions, we had more technical staff we could consult with. We did provide hands-on practice time for the learners, which I would always recommend. That is where the best learning occurred.

We mostly use training from Cisco's online training programs which is very informative and can be easily incorporated into our daily schedules without disrupting our normal working activities. There are many online training materials are available on cisco's website as well as other third-party training companies may also provide additional training.

The on-line training was not as ideal as the face-to-face training. It was done remotely and only allowed for the trainers to present information to the learners and demonstrate the platform online. There was not a good way to allow for the learners to practice, ask questions and have them answered all in the same session.

That we needed complex implementation that we didn't get tells me 2 things: 1) the product was not designed in a way that "just worked" like some of its peers (Zoom / BlueJeans) and 2) had our company defined actual user needs and validated / verified that they had bought something that matched those, we would have pursued features / designs more closely aligned with what the product actually does: screen share, sometimes video, definitely VOIP audio (always an option regardless of license), and easy recording and retrieval of meetings.

Plan ahead as much you can. You really need to know how to build what you want with the modules available to you, or that you might need to code yourself, in order to make the best use of Drupal. I recommend you analyze the most technically difficult workflows and other aspects of your implementation, and try building some test versions of those first. Get feedback from stakeholders early and often, because you can easily find yourself in a situation where your implementation does 90% of what you want, but, due to something you didn't plan for, foresee, or know about, there's no feasible way to get past the last 10%

Alternatives Considered

Webex Meetings

I find Cisco Webex Meetings to be the easiest to use from the following standpoints:- Google Hangouts can have firewall issues for my customers; Cisco Webex Meetings doesn't- Our company finds it hard at times to take presenter rights in Teams, and we often need to present- Skype can be difficult to log into; Cisco Webex Meetings isn't- Some of my accounts weren't allowed by their internal IT teams to use Zoom when Zoom had security issues; Cisco Webex Meetings was always considered an acceptable option

All of these products are in the same category, but Drupal has a different level of security, making it a much better choice for either blog platform, Websites or Intranets. The product itself is a much more professional offering, stacking up against the competition on templates, extensions and browser support

  • Pay as you grow [the] solution. Only add license[s] when more user need it
  • License include[s] Cisco Webex Meetings and Webex Teams. Can be shared for entire departments and sites as needed
  • Using cloud storage, so meeting and presentation can be store on cloud. No need to provide on-premise server
  • For remote/branch user they can seamlessly join meeting from their endpoint device
  • License assignment is very simple using cloud console

Drupal is well known to be scalable, although it requires solid knowledge of MySQL best practices, caching mechanisms, and other server-level best practices. I have never personally dealt with an especially large site, so I can speak well to the issues associated with Drupal scaling.

Return on Investment

Webex Meetings

  • Positively it definitely Less traveling expenses per person (it could have been 6k per year per person in Hotel, Airfare, meals)
  • We see each other more often than while in the office
  • Meetings are arrange more easily, in an ordered manner as well as make everyone be more punctual.
Mike Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Drupal

  • Drupal takes more investment up front to properly set up the development environment, but once done a Drupal instance can be confidently deployed with continuous development in mind. Cost of long term updates decreases over time.
  • Many efficiencies are gained with the right integration. We have developed integrations with CRM and ERP systems that automatically replicate data and reduce the need for duplicate data entry scenarios.
  • Modern responsive design and SEO aware taxonomies make Drupal the ideal platform for building out an inbound marketing strategy with content at the core. Attracting business and building a website that converts visitors into customers is where Drupal shines.
