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

Unified Communication: The Bigger Picture

In this interactive webcast Nick Harper will share a management-level view of Unified Communications including distinguishing the two distinct types: UCU and UCB. In his analysis he will explain that UC is not simply 'getting your voicemail in your email'. How the current UCU implementations if managed as part of an over business level UC strategy will enable companies to drive cost out of business operations and ultimately make them more efficient. During the webcast Nick will then discuss the UC market sizes and conclude with some real-life applications and implementations.

  • UCC Series [Ep. 5]: Conference Room of the Future Recorded: May 30 2018 58 mins
    Robin Gareiss, President & Founder, Nemertes Research
    At most organizations, conference rooms are less than perfect--and that affects the productivity of any meeting. Inconsistency is the cornerstone of meeting room space, whether it's the power outlet locations, wired or wireless connectivity, brand of digital whiteboard, or video conferencing capabilities. That's why many companies are investing in "Conference Room of the Future" initiatives.

    It will address the following:
    • What technologies are crucial to effective meetings?
    • Who should run the meeting-room overhauls for the most success --IT or facilities?
    • What are the differences between smaller, huddle rooms and large conference rooms, in terms of user expectations?
    • How do advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, play a role in meeting rooms?
    • What should IT leaders look for in management and monitoring tools?

  • Accelerate the BusDevOps Cycle with Storyteller and HPE ALM Recorded: Sep 21 2017 52 mins
    Susan D'Angelo
    Agile works well for small, co-located teams that can hover around sticky notes on a Kanban board, and collaborate on-demand. But as initiatives become more complex, and teams become dispersed, Agile can be difficult to scale across the enterprise.

    What’s missing in Agile practices today is the ability to see the whole picture. With user stories as the source of record for an application, it’s hard to connect all the dots to see the complete functionality of a feature or capability. Think about the new team who will be developing additional features on that capability - where can they learn everything it does today? How will they know the impact their changes will have on that capability or potentially other capabilities? How will they collaborate on those changes and get them reviewed in a timely manner? How will your business stakeholder understand the impact of new those changes to the overall business process? Storyteller provides a centralized reusable searchable repository of exiting business and technical process models and requirements (business, non-functional and regulatory). In addition we also offer rich visualization, collaboration and review functionalities. These base capabilities are being used today to address the questions above. And - we do it in a way that everyone can understand from Business Stakeholders down to developers and testers.

    Storyteller is a key player in Enterprise Agile. We bridge the business gaps in the current agile process. For companies struggling with Agile Transformation, we providing guardrails around writing user stories and feature decomposition. Project teams can save time and effort by using our user story and test plan generation which can them be automatically synched over to ALM tools. We are also a key player in the BizDevOps chain by providing that upfront business alignment so what is produced though “Dev” and delivered and maintained by “Ops” is exactly what “Biz” wanted.
