Oblong’s Mezzanine in IBM X-Force Command Center

Meanwhile, IBM has just started showing off its IBM X-Force Command Center and it’s impossible to miss the Mezzanine wand in this exciting video on Youtube, with reportage recently on Fox. IBM X-Force Command is a lab experience designed to help sideswiped employees respond in an instance of a multi-layered and terrifying cyber-attack.  For most companies now, the threat of cyber-terrorism is so prevalent, it’s a matter of “when” not “if” it occurs, and how the team responds.

Fujitsu’s Open Innovation Gateway, equipped with Mezzanine

Another Mezzanine customer installation, the Fujitsu Open Innovation Gateway, caught the attention of Inc. columnist, Neil C. Hughes, who lamented in a podcast and column the deathly dreariness of what goes on in most conference rooms, and how Mezzanine might be the cure. Hughes asks readers/listeners to “imagine a meeting room that was reminiscent of Tom Cruise’s ‘Minority Report,’ where everyone was working together and there were screens all over the room…” Hughes interviews Dave Marvit, Fujitsu’s Innovation Strategist, and Mohi Ahmed, Director of Open Innovation Gateway, about how the company is using Oblong’s 360-degree visual technology and why it’s so beneficial, particularly, for telecommuters. “Innovation becomes so much easier,” says Marvit, of the Innovation Gateway.
