Hybrid/Cloud UC: Getting the Transition Right

Cloud UC is being rapidly adopted in the enterprise, but recent research has shown many organizations continue to be challenged with how to effectively integrate cloud in their existing UC ecosystem. The journey to the cloud is different for every organization, as is the end goal; whether your enterprise intends to keep some applications on-premises and adopt a hybrid solution or go fully cloud-based, you are tasked with constructing a roadmap that dictates which parts of your organization to migrate and when.

In this webinar, we’ll look at practical ways to get this transition to cloud UC right. You’ll hear from experts that can help you determine how to:
- Plan, deploy, and migrate
- Operate, troubleshoot problems, and optimize performance
- Maximize usage and adoption by ensuring optimal user experience along the way

  • Meet The Expert Series: Maintaining success for Skype for Business Platform Recorded: Aug 27 2020 34 mins
    Sean Soo, Pre-sales Engineer (APAC/MEA), IR
    A revolution is underway. Microsoft is disrupting the Intelligent Communications landscape.

    With the addition of Teams, Microsoft has advanced its vision for Universal Communications to one of Intelligent Communications and Collaboration. This saw many predict the end to Skype for Business, however, at the very same conference Microsoft also announced a new Skype for Business server release for 2018.

    Working in collaborative spaces on projects can help drive productivity, it won’t take away the underlying requirement for people to ‘jump on a quick call’. While Teams can offer a different experience to Skype for Business, the Enterprise communications focus of Skype for Business will continue to stay as it starts to move to Teams in a couple of years based on their IT plan. Because Skype for Business is frequently used in a multi-vendor environment that includes Cisco, Avaya, Acme Packet, Sonus, AudioCodes and/or other vendors, the ability to manage the complete user experience, end-to-end across all technologies and vendors, is a top concern for IT Operations.

    Companies that do not prioritize this will experience lengthy downtime and quality issues, while the operations department tries to find the root cause of an issue. This can significantly slow adoption, lead to lost or disgruntled customers, and impact the initial deployment ROI. In addition, as a real-time communications tool, Skype for Business requires real-time performance management.

    Join us during the session as Prognosis gives you everything you need to identify and eradicate problems before they impact the user experience from pre-deployment network assessments – the first Microsoft certified tool that validates if you are ready for production – through to ongoing post-deployment testing. Prognosis enables you to understand your full application environment as well as the network impact. It has no reliance on probes or taps or anything you’d consider intrusive on the network.

  • Keeping Customers Connected – Challenge or Opportunity for Service Providers? Recorded: Jun 17 2020 63 mins
    Richard Brehm (VP, Technical Services @ IR) | Bill Haskins (Sr. Analyst & Partner UC at Wainhouse Research)
    Due to the uncertainty COVID-19 has caused, many organizations are leading with caution – which includes travel suspended, new hire freezes and reduction in any unnecessary spending.

    So what does this mean for service providers as they look to support their customers through this uncertain time?

    Companies that were able, moved their entire workforce to remote environments. Unfortunately, many of these organizations do not have the necessary tools to support this new environment. With a sudden and rapid increase in VPN logins, video calls and conferences, in addition to network and bandwidth limitations, more UC-related issues are occurring.

    According to Wainhouse Research, when surveying IT decision makers, “nearly the entire survey panel (94%) indicates that their organization has made changes to the ways their organization’s workforce communicates and collaborates.”

    This means service providers can help their customers adapt and thrive in a situation where many businesses will fail. To do this, service providers should ensure they go beyond their SLAs agreements to retain and attract new customers.
