many complexities of Unified Communications &
Collaboration make it challenging for enterprise
organizations to navigate through the various
implementation options available. Enterprises know that
they want to further their UC strategies, and they want
to avoid making costly mistakes. They want to hear from
their peers about what worked, what didn't, and how to
best proceed with the greatest possibility of success.
They need advice on how to find the use cases and
business value of UC, how to deliver ROI, and how to
decide among the various solution options available.
They want to hear about the various vendor offerings,
but don't want to hear sales pitches.
With that said and on behalf
of UCStrategies, I am excited to announce the UC Enterprise Summit, a
conference where enterprises in the planning stages for
a UC implementation can interact with their peers and
independent industry experts, learn best practices,
pitfalls, migration strategies, and share their UC
challenges. In a unique format, the Summit will bring
together senior executives, analysts, consultants, and
leading vendors for 2 1/2 days of constructive UC
"collaboration." This is an invitation-only event for UC
and collaboration influencers and decision-makers.
The Summit will address all
aspects of the UC market including collaboration, video,
mobility, cloud, communications-enabled business
processes (CEBP), the impact of social networking, and
more. The program will be filled with information
consultants need to ensure a successful migration to
unified communications, including "what you need to
know" presentations, case studies, workshops, small
focus sessions, panel and roundtable discussions, and
plenty of networking opportunities. The overall goal is
to deepen the understanding of the real world challenges
and to ensure success in the adoption of unified
