Cisco unveiled the initial set of APIs for its Cisco Spark collaboration platform (in preview) which is designed to make IT teamwork simpler by bringing teams together instantly in virtual rooms where members can send messages, share files, and meet face-to-face, all in one place.
In Spark, conversations take place in virtual meeting rooms. Some rooms are live for a few hours while others can become permanent fixtures of a team’s workflow. Spark allows conversations to flow seamlessly between messages, video calls and real-time white boarding sessions.
This preview release is focused primarily on room management and getting content in and out of Spark. With this initial set of APIs developers can:
- Create a room and invite people
- Search for people in a company
- Post messages into a room
- Get room history or be notified in real-time when new messages are posted by others
