Presented by

About this talk

Enterprises are increasingly considering Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) as the basis for their communications infrastructure strategy going forward. But some have been reluctant to commit to a pure cloud approach from the start, so they pursue a hybrid strategy—with some users migrated to the cloud while others remain on legacy premises systems. Is this really the best strategy? Or does hybrid offer the worst of both worlds—partial outsourcing while still requiring significant internal resources to manage legacy gear and its integration with the UCaaS service? This webinar will lay out the advantages and the industry trends toward UC in the cloud, and will feature expert opinions on the issues that a hybrid approach may add to a UC strategy. You’ll come away with an understanding of why hybrid cloud isn’t necessarily the safe or easy choice, and whether a migration to 100% UCaaS can be a better option. Join industry experts & a seasoned IT VP as they explain and debate: Hybrid vs. UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) Potential issues and trade-offs of a hybrid approach Best practices for moving 100% to a UCaaS solution Real-world feedback from an IT executive on moving to UCaaS
