| |DECEMBER 20185For decades, we were told that in the future, telephone calls would be replaced with video. We're not quite there, but we can still see it coming. Way back in 1879, Punch, a satirical British magazine, offered an illustration of a hypothetical `telephonoscope.' And then about 40 years later, in the 1920s, according to Smithsonian, many of the inventors doing early work on what became television conceived of the technology not as a broadcast medium but as a two-way system. The Jetsons promised, in 1962, that videophones would be part of work and everyday life at some point in the future. Enter Internet, personal computers with built-in webcams, Skype, and, a few years later, the ubiquitous smartphone. Suddenly video calls didn't require a dedicated piece of hardware, instead becoming part of a menu of communications options alongside audio calls and text messages. Last year, Facebook-owned WhatsApp said that its 1.2 billion users make 55 million video calls a day. Videoconferencing has arrived in the business realm as well. As the growing need for better business communication aligned with the video industry's shift to cloud-hosted architecture over the years, video conferencing technology has evolved into an affordable and mainstream collaboration solution with the ability to truly bring people together. Good enterprise collaboration and communication tools are essential in the digital workplace.In this edition of CIO Insider, we are bringing together who have been carrying torch of advanced communication in India and enabling better business productivity.
