Cisco has decided to discontinue its Cisco Mail software-as-a-service product, saying customers are now interested in social collaboration and stand-alone e-mail.
Cisco Mail, which was originally launched as WebEx Mail, will be phased out to allow customers to move to alternatives, Debra Chrapaty, the company's collaboration software general manager, said in a blog post on Tuesday.
"The product has been well received, but we've since learned that customers have come to view their e-mail as a mature and commoditized tool versus a long-term differentiated element of their collaboration strategy," Chrapaty said. "We've also heard that customers are eager to embrace emerging collaboration tools such as social software and video."
