Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Panel Session: Battle for Enterprise Collaboration - Teams vs. Spark vs. Slack

The world of communications and collaboration is transforming drastically. Rather than disjointed voice, video, IM, and document sharing tools, companies are moving toward team collaboration--Microsoft Teams, Cisco Spark, Slack, for the most part, in addition to RingCentral Glip, Avaya Equinox, and others.

The big question: Which solution is the best for each company's requirements? We will cover technology features, architecture, user interface, and costs. And, we'll explore how your decision will affect a company's infrastructure, security, governance, and application strategies moving forward?

This panel will discuss and debate the various options for enterprise collaboration, with a focus on Teams, Spark, and Slack.

  • Disrupt Your WAN: SD-WAN to Support Digital Transformation Sep 19 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Digital Transformation initiatives often hinge on providing new and exciting services to staff or to customers across the WAN and the Internet. Engineering a WAN for continuous and more rapid change is key to enabling ongoing transformational efforts. And yet, for most companies, the WAN is among the pieces of the infrastructure hardest to change, both for technological reasons and due to the constraints on link provisioning by carriers.

    This webinar will focus on how SD-WAN provides the WAN that Digital Transformation efforts require, through its combination of centralized policy management, automation, zero-touch provisioning, and the ability to work with many links across differing media from different providers.

    Robin Gareiss, President & Founder, Nemertes Research
    We all know technology can improve the customer experience, but exactly which technologies and how do we apply them? Too much technology, too quickly deployed can result in frustration and failure.

  • The Business of Connecting - WAN Economics: Carrier Rates and SD-WAN Aug 15 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    The WAN is the central nervous system of the enterprise, and is in a period of massive change: integration of cloud resources into the IT service portfolio and migration of a significant portion of the enterprise’s work and data to the cloud; rapid increase in mobile devices as work platforms; expansion of Internet of Things deployments; and new WAN paradigms, especially SD-WAN. All of this puts renewed focus on the economics of wide-area networking: How much does it cost to connect a site to a WAN? What technologies are easiest, fastest, best performing? Which vendors provide the best technology, service, and value?

    The Nemertes 2018-19 WAN Economics Research study uncovers current data on:

    • Last-mile circuit costs
    • MPLS, Ethernet, 4G, and Internet service costs
    • Ratings for connectivity providers and ranking their ability to deliver, and deliver on time
    • SD-WAN platform costs – capital, implementation, operation
    • SD-WAN adoption and vendor ratings
    ...and more!

    We look forward to sharing this information with you.
