When the global pandemic pulled people from the office, video conferencing brought them back together - virtually. But while camera-to-camera meetings kept us connected and productive, for most people, creativity slowed. To address this problem, enterprises around the world are looking at advanced collaboration tools. These platforms offer a wide array of capabilities: Whiteboarding, annotation, post-it notes, storyboarding, document repositories, and more. But are these tools for everyone? And do users have to change how they work to benefit from these systems? During this session, a leading industry analyst will step you through ideation, including the good, the bad, and everything in between. You’ll come away with a better understanding of where (and if) ideation fits within your broader collaboration strategy.


  • What do ideation systems offer that the current widely-deployed collaboration tools don’t—and why might you need these capabilities?
  • Are ideation systems just for the meeting room? What ideation features work well for desktop users and remote workers?
  • What hardware and software are required at the desktop and room level for an optimal ideation experience?
  • How do you (or your business units) make the business case for investing in ideation systems?
