Post-pandemic, new demands for hybrid remote/office work, enhanced customer experience, and advanced video capabilities have emerged, and it’s far from clear what communications/collaboration platform will support them. Major technology providers are tackling this challenge from different angles, each emphasizing various aspects they argue are most critical to success.

To help sort out some of the different approaches, Enterprise Connect 2021 will present two Industry Vision Addresses from thought leaders who are helping drive the discussion around the platform of the future. In concise, 12-minute talks, they’ll share their vision of what’s essential in next-generation communications/collaboration, and how to go about building your enterprise systems and processes around these requirements. You’ll come away with a clearer perspective on the issues that will be central to building the platforms that support communications and collaboration over the next several years.
