Contextual communications becomes real, meaning we no longer will need to leave our apps to engage in voice, video or collaboration. This webinar details the impacts of communications moving from telecom into the new API economy, including risks and rewards for developers and service providers, key differences between WebRTC and ORTC, and critical upcoming challenges.Read more >

One of the biggest problems that IT leaders have is in managing all the legacy hardware-based PBX systems. They’re very complex to manage, they’re very expensive to setup and configure and they don’t provide the flexibility that most organisations are looking for.
Watch the video above to see Enzo Signore, CMO at 8×8, discuss how Enterprise Communications as a Service can enable organisations to overcome this issue and get the flexibility they need with their communications, to run their business at customer speed.
As cloud technologies revolutionize the business model of enterprise computing, the telecommunications industry is leveraging the potential of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as a telco flavor of network cloud computing. Cloud computing in communications opens the market to CSPs or Enterprises to take advantage of communications services without owning the equipment or the network – similar to cloud computing in enterprises where the actual computing is done in a data center not owned by the customer. The full range of NFV benefits can be better realized by adopting a fresh approach to service development, instantiation and configuration that builds on the strengths of this computing model. With the NFV and cloud computing approach, services are built differently and run differently but should be consumed like services based on a legacy, non-NFV platforms. These new differences require a new model of thinking, consideration of the inherent trade-offs when planning solutions or services and an understanding of the design patterns that achieve the best results in the most efficient way. This webcast will cover –
-Cloud business model for driving NFV services
-The timeline on how to get to Cloud Communications
-The VNF Cloud requirements for Communications

For workers in all kinds of organizations, a good and ‘productive’ day too often seems to be defined by numbers. The number of emails sent and the elusive triumph of InBox Zero. The number of files shared through DropBox or collaborated on through Google Docs. The number of messages answered/read/posted through Facebook or WhatsApp. The number of channels on Slack.The number of direct messages on Twitter. The number of video conversations on Skype. Somehow, these numbers have come to define employee productivity and even worth.
That’s a problem. There is a communications engagement paradox. Because there are so many forms of communication, accompanied by massive pressure to ‘just get it done,’ we might actually be communicating less effectively. The truth is that we are spending so much time and energy in the everyday ‘doing’ that there is no ‘knowing’ in relationship to which efforts drive engagement and action over time. Without ever ‘knowing,’ a communication engagement gap between sender and receiver is bound to grow.
Join us to discover new technologies in unified communications and how to drive engagement in the cloud.

The flexibility to extend international services and global reach
Potential risks of downtime and non-compliance when solutions are not enterprise-grade
