For many enterprises, keeping UC systems on premises had long made sense for a variety of reasons, including cost and control. For others, a hybrid deployment model that mixed and matched on-prem and cloud systems worked well. But then came the global pandemic, and organizations that had not yet fully embraced cloud communications found themselves flat-footed, struggling to find a way to support their newly remote workforces. The answer has been a transition to cloud communications and collaboration tools at scale, often using quick-response free licensing options from providers. But does this strategy, adopted in crisis mode, make sense for the long term?
In this session, a leading UC consultant will walk you through the key decisions youâ€™ll need to consider now that you have time to more fully evaluate your cloud strategy.
Video of this session is available on demand within the Swapcard platform for registered users. Free registration is open through December 2020.
