Online Meeting Services Comparison Matrix

Comparing Services and Products from Convoq, Genesys Conferencing, IBM, Macromedia, Microsoft, Oracle, Raindance, and WebEx against Our Evaluation Framework

October 21, 2004

We’ve developed an online meeting product evaluation framework to help you select the product that is best for you, minimizing the time and risk of that selection. The framework has seven major evaluation criteria: meeting convocation, collaborative meeting functions, advanced meeting functions, meeting management and moderating, archiving and playback, Architecture, and pricing. Each of these major criteria has multiple sub-criteria. This report presents a matrix of our evaluations of eight online meeting products against that framework. The products we’ve evaluated include hosted offerings (Convoq ASAP, Genesys Meeting Center, Microsoft Office Live Meeting, Raindance Meeting Edition, and WebEx Meeting Center) and licensed offerings (IBM Lotus Web Conferencing, Macromedia Breeze Live, and Oracle Web Conferencing).
