A lot of visible and behind-the-scene actions have been taken in recent months to prepare CERN conferencing services (Indico, Vidyo, the webcast and conference rooms services) for challenges to come. These services will be described in terms of features and usage statistics. We will present their integration to the CERN layered cloud infrastructure, and with other IT base services. We will analyse the feedback gathered through recent user satisfaction surveys and describe the orientation taken for their development, including the challenges to open some of these services to communities outside CERN. Some security aspects will also be highlighted as well as the importance of cross-service integrations.


A description of recent evolutions in the CERN conferencing services, from the usage, features, security and management points of view.
