Addressing the Challenge of Hosted IP-PBX in the Large Enterprise

Wednesday - 09/02/09,  8:30-9:15am

As financial and human resources become increasingly strained for businesses of all sizes, CIOs and CFOs within larger enterprises are beginning to look at more cost effective ways of deploying and managing their corporate phone systems. Hosted IP voice solutions, which have witnessed significant adoption in the SMB community, are now being viewed by corporations as viable, money-saving alternatives to complex, on-premise systems that require a hefty financial investment along with knowledgeable staff.

Cost effectiveness, alone, is not enough for the larger enterprise to justify the movement to hosted telecom solutions. Performance attributes like scalability, reliability, manageability, quality and security are equally, if not more important, than the economic advantages. Today’s hosted IP voice solutions can successfully address these challenges while providing significant financial benefits.

Adding Video to the Mix

Wednesday - 09/02/09,  10:30-11:15am

A number of factors are driving the increased adoption of video in the enterprise space. The sad state of the economy is forcing enterprises to reconsider travel and implement instead videoconferencing solutions. These solutions are not limited solely to room-sized deployments, but are increasingly taking the form of desktop video conferencing solutions leveraging the latest videophone technology on the market. These low-cost, robust endpoints are also creating an opportunity for new Video SIP Trunking Providers to deliver new multimedia services, such as Video Voice Mail, Video Ring Back Tones, Mobile Video Sharing and much, much more. Come to this session to learn about the various ways that video is being added to the mix of enterprise communications.

Unified Communications: The Hard ROI

Wednesday - 09/02/09,  11:30-12:15pm

UC’s return on investment is typically referenced in terms of “improved productivity” – something that is often difficult for companies to quantify. Some of the specific UC components, such as video conferencing, deliver a hard ROI, but that is more of a positive statement for video conferencing than it is for UC. However, UC, implemented in the context of the automation of business processes, has a very compelling, well-defined, hard ROI. Communications-based Process Automation (CBPA) eliminates process inefficiencies and is the approach that makes UC actually make sense for businesses. CBPA takes the key components of UC functionality – things like enterprise-wide presence, queuing and routing, call and screen recording, VoIP, etc. – and uses that functionality to automate critical business processes and save companies money. This session will define CBPA, quantify the hard ROI, provide a typical use case, contrast CBPA vs. traditional process automation applications, and deliver a checklist for implementing a successful CBPA project. Each attendee will also receive a white paper titled, “A New Approach to Business Process Automation.”

Distributed Enterprises: Can You Reduce OperatingCosts & Maintain Reliability?

Wednesday - 09/02/09,  1:15-2:00pm

The migration to VoIP based communications systems has a number of business and financial advantages which is driving adoption in a many different enterprise deployments. Distributed enterprises (banks, insurance, government and retail) have been leaders in the adoption of VoIP, allowing these organizations to leverage their wide-area-network (WAN) infrastructure for branch-to-branch and branch-to-HQ calling, saving significantly on their communications costs. However, some worry about WAN failure situations and wonder ‘how will these branch offices continue to provide service to their customers or enable emergency communications?’ Addressing these concerns is paramount for effective deployment of VoIP based solutions to distributed enterprises. Attend this session to learn how solution developers are addressing branch office connectivity, enabling remote branch offices reduce operating costs and remain connected and in business despite WAN outages.
