By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, TMC

“Cutting Through the Complexity: Making Communications Services Easy” and “Cloud Migration: What, When, and How” will be among the panels taking place at ITEXPO today at the Rio in Las Vegas.

The first panel, which runs 2:30-3:15 p.m. in Palma Ballroom A-D, is about the delicate balance organizations need to strike between delivering feature-rich products, and making those solutions affordable, available, and easy-to-use to encourage more widespread user adoption; get the desired productivity results for businesses; and create an opportunity for vendors and service providers to keep their customers and grow their businesses

Featured speakers on this panel include Carlos Aragon,

senior manager of solutions marketing for unified communications at GENBAND. GENBAND has made some interesting acquisitions in the communications space recently. That includes purchasing fring and uReach (News - Alert). GENBAND is also a pioneer on the WebRTC frontier.

Also on this panel is Shawn Guenther, director of product management at Estech Systems. Estech Systems sells phone systems and cloud services designed for businesses and organizations. Since its founding in 1987, the Plano-based company has sold more than 300,000 business communications systems.

Craig Hinkley is also a panelist. He’s vice president and general manager at LogLogic, a TIBCO company. Tibco Software (News - Alert) acquired LogLogic, a San Jose-based security management platform provider, a couple years ago for around $130 million.

The cloud migration panel today takes place 4:30-5:15 p.m. in the

Palma Ballroom E-H. This panel is about the challenges and best practices of moving to the cloud.

More than 40 percent of IT professionals in a recent survey said they experience improved operational efficiency following a move to the cloud. Adapting to market changes more effectively and targeting new customers were noted as two of the key benefits of moving to the cloud.

The new flexibility and responsiveness that the cloud can enable is, of course, widely recognized. Yet, while everyone seems to understand the benefits of the cloud, and forecasts for cloud adoption are extremely optimistic, there is still a fair amount of wariness and uncertainty on how best to get there.

This panel of experts will offer their suggestions on best practices in this arena.

Here is the list of panelists for this session. Bob La Loggia is founder and CEO of Appointment-Plus. Pablo Marin is founder and CEO of MyCloudIT. And Richard is EVP at RiverMeadow.
