Cloud communications provide compelling benefits, but cloud migration is tough. Public (multi-tenant) cloud solutions often involve a complete overhaul of existing capabilities, including user features, communications endpoints, integrations with other systems and services, and IT admin toolsets. Such an overhaul simply might not be feasible from a technology, regulatory compliance, or resource standpoint.

Private or hybrid (cloud/premises-based or public/private cloud) communications environments may be the right solution for your organization and others for the foreseeable future. To balance near-term concerns with a long-term vision, you must consider multiple cloud migration paths and evaluate providers' ability to effectively support different communications environments.
In this session, a leading industry analyst will address the following topics, together with a panel of subject matter experts:


  • What type of communications and collaboration capabilities are organizations moving to the cloud?
  • How will business telephony environments in 2025 be different from today?
  • Public vs private vs hybrid cloud environments: pros and cons that you must take into account when developing your communications roadmap for the next 3 - 5 years
  • What service provider cloud communications approaches are available today?
  • How should you evaluate your next cloud communications provider?
