  • The Enterprise UC Reality – and Cisco’s UC Approach Recorded: Nov 21 2017 61 mins
    Bill Haskins Sr. Analyst and Partner, UC, Chad Elford Global Director UCaaD Cisco Collab Slutions at TATA Communications
    Enterprises have a variety of choices when it comes to adopting new Unified Communications (UC) solutions. The current reality is that very few enterprises come close to unlocking the full potential of their UC platform to achieve the ideal experience. The UC landscape is evolving and the buying decision is becoming increasingly complex. IT teams need to constantly re-evaluate their strategy keeping in mind the numerous UC and UCaaS solutions, the end-user behavior, and growing expectations from the platform.

    In this webinar, Bill Haskins from Wainhouse Research provides his expert analysis of the current UC market. Bill discusses the pros and cons of leading enterprise UC solutions. Having observed the evolution of the UC industry closely, Bill covers key considerations for enterprise IT teams as they prepare their UC roadmaps for current and future needs. As most mid and large organizations have a considerable Cisco UC infrastructure footprint, Bill will also talk about Cisco’s approach to UC.

    Bill is joined by Chad Elford from Tata Communications who discusses the UC approach taken by many leading enterprises globally. Chad provides insights on business collaboration through UCaaS solutions and how it helps enterprises achieve their goals.

    If you are currently deciding the UC strategy for your organization or mid-way through executing one, this webinar will provide you with valuable intelligence to help you fine tune/pivot your UC roadmap for your organization’s digital transformation.

  • Unleashing the Power of SIP to Accelerate Digital Transformation Recorded: Nov 14 2017 60 mins
    Chris Barnard IDC Vice President Telecommunications and Networking, Simon Farr Product Marketing Director,TATA Communications
    Digital Transformation is changing user expectations. In our personal lives, we communicate and collaborate using a whole range of on-demand and flexible platforms and applications.

    The challenge is to meet user expectations and deliver communication and collaboration solutions that match or exceed what’s available in the consumer world. Legacy models limit how fast an enterprise can react and scale to meet new demand while making it difficult to adapt and change.

    Global Session Initiation Protocol can be a foundation for true business transformation and make it a reality within an enterprise. Businesses can unleash the power of SIP to create new user experiences while generating cost-savings and capturing new growth.

    Join Chris Barnard – IDC Vice President, Telecommunications and Networking, and Simon Farr – Product Marketing Director, Business Collaboration, Tata Communications in a live webinar. Chris and Simon will explore the potential of SIP and how it can act as a foundation for Digital Transformation.

    Takeaways from this webcast

    • How Digital Transformation is shaping business expectations
    • Key reasons why Session Initiation Protocol can be a foundation for Digital Transformation
    • Strategies for moving beyond legacy models
    • How to maximize the value of SIP in a business environment

  • Debunking SD-WAN Myths for Effective Enterprise Network Transformation Recorded: Sep 28 2017 61 mins
    Joel Stradling, Research Director, Global Data, Peter Juffernholz, Associate VP Global Network Services, TATA Communications
    Many enterprises are currently on a trajectory for virtualizing their network services. There is a clear evolution path emerging - one that is taking customers from their legacy IP and Ethernet VPNs towards Hybrid VPNs - whereby the Internet is increasingly taking traffic loads and must be business-grade, and then towards SDN/NFV.

    The next phase of the customer WAN journey is already underway for many enterprises. SD-WAN services are now available from a large variety of suppliers including telcos, systems integrators, platform developers, hardware vendors, cloud providers and software developers. The SD-WAN term has become a huge buzzword gleefully bandied about by many in technology, but what are the real underlying issues that enterprises must consider? How can enterprises guarantee a consistent customer experience for application and network performance across the distributed WAN locations?

    Join Joel Stradling - Global Data’s Research Director for Global Managed and Hosted IT Services, and Peter Juffernholz – Senior Network Executive from Tata Communications in a live webinar. Joel and Peter will examine the SD-WAN transformation customer journey to provide insights about what might be the right fit for your enterprise and to de-bunk marketing myths.

    Takeaways from this webcast:
    -Key reasons why enterprises are deploying SD-WAN
    -Debunking SD-WAN myths with our feet-on-the-ground reality check
