The enterprise communications/collaboration environment is changing so rapidly that at times it may seem impossible to keep up. How can you create a strategic plan for your technology systems when new functionality is constantly emerging, and technology enablers like the cloud and AI are continually changing the shape of the marketplace? How do you make sure you really understand what your end users and customers need from your enterprise communications systems—and then deliver these capabilities while remaining agile enough to respond when the requirements change again?

To open our Tuesday General Session program, we’ll continue the Enterprise Connect tradition of assembling a panel of enterprise IT decision makers and posing such questions to them. You’ll hear firsthand how your peers are navigating the evolving landscape; learn which technologies they consider immature, which are overhyped, and which are ripe for deployment in enterprise environments. They’ll also share their biggest near-term challenges, as well as how they’re addressing those. You’ll come away from this spirited exchange with fresh ideas and authoritative perspectives about where the industry and its technologies, services, and vendors stand today; where we may be headed; and how you can keep up with such a dynamic environment.
