Power i Forecast: Cloud-Enabled Video May Be the Icing on the Cake for Unified Communications

Emerging industry standards and platform and partner integrations make mobile video conferencing across heterogeneous networks a distinct possibility in 2012.

chris_smithWritten by Chris Smith

The promise of unified communications has been omnipresent for many years, but the missing piece to make it tantalizing to the masses and push its appeal into the category of a "must have" for smaller companies has been video. Today, the video element is being tested for prime time, and companies likely will begin rolling out secure inter-enterprise video communication services sometime in 2012.

W3C Announces First Draft of Standard for Online Privacy

To address rising concerns about privacy on the Web, W3C has published two first drafts for standards that allow users to express preferences about online tracking:

  • Tracking Preference Expression (DNT), which defines mechanisms for users to express cross-site tracking preferences and for sites to indicate whether they honor these preferences.
  • Tracking Compliance and Scope, which defines the meaning of a "Do Not Track" preference and sets out practices for websites to comply with this preference.
