This is SlideRocket’s first year participating in VMworld and the sharing of cloud best practices and introduction of new technologies is impressive. VMworld clearly demonstrates how cloud computing is impacting the way each and every one of us works.
Work is no longer defined by office space, cubicle partitions or even geographic boundaries. A dramatic shift in the business software industry from a PC-centric era to a cloud-based, mobile and social media era of computing have made work possible anytime, anywhere and on any device. Business applications in the cloud have powered a new way to work that has transformed not only where we work but how we work, communicate and collaborate.
VMware is giving new life to the presentation model with SlideRocket. Reinventing the way people build, deliver and share presentations, SlideRocket equips the new workforce with a modern application that is collaborative, mobile-optimized and social.
It is not uncommon today to have a geographically distributed workforce serving a global client base. Connecting through the cloud facilitates seamless communication and collaboration. In this new way to work there is a greater need for communication tools that not only go with the flow but improve it.
Moving presentations to the cloud reinvigorates how businesses share big ideas, manage compelling content, collaborate efficiently and inspire audiences with two-way dynamic conversations. Traditional presentations allowed users to tell a story but SlideRocket allows users to be part of the story. Capabilities like real-time feedback, social media integration, mobile functionality and analytics shift the paradigm for presentations and the way businesses communicate.
SlideRocket is built for a new, cloud-centric way of working. A team member sitting in a coffee shop in Topeka can assemble and share a dynamic presentation that can be experienced on multiple devices, ranging from desktops to tablets, online or off. Individuals can quickly create slides that flow with dynamic data from sources like Google, Twitter, and Salesforce. Author’s charts and graphs are always up-to-date with real-time data from Google spreadsheets, display up to the moment financial information, tap into the instant flow of ideas on twitter, and intelligently assemble sales decks in a single click.
The world has changed and technology has fueled a new way to work. We no longer have to settle for outdated presentation methods that require us to duct tape solutions to make them work in our real-time world.
