* What does it mean to have a “software based videoconferencing solution” – what changes on the buyers’ side and the sellers’?
* Can videoconferencing really be a cloud-based solution?
* How does “video-as-a-software-business” change the economics – for both buyers and sellers?
* What are the risks for customers, equipment vendors, and service providers?
* What should a buyer be doing today or in preparing an RFP?
