Video conferencing: Does it always have to be zoom?

For many Buro workers, the Corona crisis, the HomeOffice and Zoom are inextricably linked – the provider of videoconferencing experienced a massive increase in its number of users in a short time. The reason: It works well with many participants and all use it.

But with the ascent came the critics: privacy and security are poorly, in the company you should not use zoom in the company. Some companies have been looking for a long-term alternative since then. Therefore, in the new IX 7/2020, Funfzehen providers show which functions dominate their software.

Even a first look at the market inspection shows that the transition to the cloud is completed – customers should also relate videoconferencing services for critical areas securely with just a few clicks. Jitsi Meet is one of the few exceptions, the free software can be set up with little effort in its own data center.

Another difference is integration with other programs in the company. Here Microsoft has the nose in front: video conferencing are only one of many functions in teams, but above all the users can access directly on Office and third-party services. But this is not always wanted – who does not put on Microsoft, drags only ballast.

Caution is offered in the information provided by providers at the maximum participants: many developers advertise with high numbers. But a second look shows that a coarse part often can not actively participate in the conversation. Some software such as the free NextCloud Talk does not provide any restriction, in this case limits the equipment of the server.
