The VCI-Group is a knowledge sharing community that aims to be the voice of collaboration users around the world, while also influencing the visual communications industry. In pursuit of these goals, the group has in the past introduced a leaders’ circle, which offers its members the opportunity to display their products and services to the VCI-Group user community. Now, VCI-Group is introducing a new contest to help tackle interoperability issues.
This contest is open to visual communications and collaboration users who are asked to submit two issues before May 1 to be eligible for a $50 American Express (News - Alert) gift card. Then, the submitted interoperability issues will be presented at the first annual VC DireXions Summit, which will be held at the ITEXPO (News - Alert) Conference in August.
At VC DireXions, end-user customers will be able to present their top two issues with interoperability and application integration. In particular, the top 100 issues selected by the VCI-Group panel will be selected for presentation at the Summit. The entire presentation will be recorded and posted online for later viewing.
Anyone who makes a submission will be entered into a drawing to win one of three American Express gift cards.
As for the VC DireXions Summit itself, the event will bring together the leading users of video and Web conferencing and collaboration from Fortune 500 companies down to up-and-coming SMBs. The primary focus of the event will be on how to get all visual collaboration vendors to cooperate and make their technologies work together in the same manner as telephony solutions.
“The VC DireXions Summit is the first event of its kind that will enable end-user customers to actually take control of the collaboration industry, set the course for interoperability and define the future of Visual Collaboration," said Karl Dahlin, director of Strategic Relationships for VCI-Group, in a statement.
