Personally, I'm quite surprised by Google's move. Marratech was a relatively obscure web conferencing player. There are over 100...but Marratech has not come up once in two years in any of the customer meetings or analyst conferences that I have been involved with...and I've attended practically all of them. My guess is that Google will rebuild 95% of the app.

Jeff,

Very much doubt that the acquisition will have an impact in the market. Over the past 7 years, web conferencing companies have been acquired left and right with very little lasting effect.

Google is focused on Miscrosoft. The acquisition only demonstrates the importance of collaboration technologies.

All the best Jeff.

It seems they have only acquired the technology not the company. How do you think this will affect the web conferencing market?
