Three years ago, Cisco acquired Tropo to build out a set of world-class developer tools and create a vibrant developer community focused on innovative collaboration solutions.
We are pleased with the success achieved and are proud of our accomplishments, including:
- Cisco Webex for Developers (formerly Cisco Spark for Developers), which delivers APIs, SDKs, and widgets for Webex Teams and soon for the entire Cisco Webex platform.
- Webex App Hub (formerly Cisco Spark Depot), a marketplace where developers showcase bots and integrations that enhance the Cisco Webex experience.
- Webex Teams Ambassadors (formerly Cisco Spark Ambassadors) and other programs to engage our powerful developer community and ecosystem partners.
- The $150M Webex Innovation Fund (formerly Cisco Spark Innovation Fund), to foster exciting new projects.
As we’ve engaged Cisco’s broader developer community, we’ve found solutions that use Tropo voice and SMS capabilities to augment Cisco products resonate extremely well with customers. In particular, integrations and bots that leverage Tropo voice and SMS alongside Webex Teams’ core meeting and messaging capabilities have been very popular. To that end, we’re excited to extend an invitation to all Tropo developers to sign up for a free Webex account and begin exploring Webex for Developers.
As we focus on developers that use Tropo to enhance their Cisco-enabled solutions we are making some changes to how developers consume Tropo products going forward. One change is that we will ask all new developers to submit a form describing their ISV solution as part of the account creation process.
We look forward to seeing all the exciting ways Tropo’s incredible developer community will innovate with Webex. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
