Any large-scale migration will be complex, but especially when a global enterprise is attempting to move locations around the world onto a new service. Not only is the scale of the project huge, but the governance and corporate decision-making driving the process is likely to be complicated, and meeting user needs and regional requirements are equally demanding. Real-world cases have stretched out well beyond anticipated timelines, with enterprise leadership, managed service providers, systems integrators, and service providers all finding themselves overmatched at times to the overarching task at hand. In this session, a leading consultant with extensive experience in global procurements and deployments will take you through the 7 mistakes most likely to cause serious problems in a strategic migration to the cloud, and will help you understand how best to avoid or mitigate these issues. You'll come away better equipped to keep your own project on schedule and within budget and scope.


  • Challenges arising from a complex enterprise environment for cloud and communications (e.g., issues with procurement organizations; contractual and scheduling commitments, broader strategies for the cloud beyond just communications; varying levels of understanding from non-communications executives within the enterprise)
  • Challenges arising from migrating your service in multiple global regions concurrently
  • Challenges arising from legacy voice issues that current teams may not be familiar with
  • Issues to monitor in execution of the project on the part of MSPs, SIs, and service providers
