Communications technology has always been business-critical; now it’s the foundation of the enterprise’s ability to keep employees engaged and support the cross-company collaboration that leads to competitive advantage. For enterprise IT/communications decision-makers, this means you must think strategically about the business while still understanding the technology deeply enough to make the right choices amid a highly competitive, constantly transforming industry landscape. To help you build this strategic vision while keeping up with tech trends, this session will bring together thought leaders from vendors that are driving that transformation, in a lively discussion led by the program co-chair of Enterprise Connect together with a top industry analyst. Among the critical issues our panel will debate:

  • What will the communications platform of the future look like (if there even is one)?
  • How much synergy, if any, is needed between employee-facing and customer-facing communications technology?
  • How will the role of video evolve in the hybrid work future?
  • What role will AI play in communications technology over the next 6 – 12 months?
  • How should the IT organization continue evolving to better address the new realities?
