  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

    •Understand the trends driving mobility and behavior changes in the work place, with Melanie Turek, VP of Research for Enterprise Communication & Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan.
    •Get the real story from a business that has addressed their mobility needs first hand from Adam Fishman, director of growth and operations for Lyft, a community ride-sharing service.
    •Hear how a cloud communications solution is addressing several challenges businesses face in the new work world from Nisha Ahluwalia, VP of product marketing at RingCentral.

  • Lee Smith (Dee Smith & Associates) and David Cuthbertson (SMS) will cover their approach and methods of assessing existing data centre facilities and management processes. Rapid changes in both IT and data centre technologies often mean that facilities and management techniques fail to evolve fast enough, with the data centre potentially being the weak link in the delivery chain of all IT services. Achieving a baseline through an assessment is critical for any improvement or transformation activity - but is not so easy to do in practice.
