Enterprise Connect Orlando presented Cisco with the 2017 Best of Enterprise Connect award for Spark Board, a cloud- and touch-based team collaboration device. Each year, the Best of Enterprise Connect award is presented to a company making significant technological advancements within the enterprise communications and collaboration industry. Enterprise Connect Program Co-Chair, Beth Schultz, presented Cisco with the award during a ceremony held this morning during the event.
