Connect, Communicate and Collaborate at Unified Communications Expo
Jan 11, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Unified Communications Expo is set to be the connected business event of the year when it takes place on 5th and 6th March at Olympia. The two-day event will be the biggest show of its kind in Europe and will demonstrate the value of connected people and connected business to thousands of visitors. Host speakers from a broad range of communications companies, together with exhibitors and sponsors such as AT&T, Avaya, Cisco, Microsoft, Nokia, Polycom, ShoreTel and Siemens, will demonstrate to organisations of all sizes how to connect, collaborate and communicate more effectively.
Unified Communications Expo is relevant to every department in an organisation, not just IT. Addressing key themes that impact on all lines of business including BYOD, Consumerisation of IT, Flexibility, Mobility and Collaboration, industry figures and experts in their field will explain how departments can increase business performance and lower infrastructure costs. "A recent survey on LinkedIn found the biggest barrier for the adoption of Unified Communications and collaboration deployment is organisational culture. As such, it is vital that representatives from all lines of business attend," explains Hugh Keeble, Managing Director of event organisers, Imago Techmedia.
A professional audience from all key lines of business will be able to evaluate the latest technologies in Voice, Video and Conferencing; Cloud Communications; Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS); Social Business and Collaboration; Flexibility and Mobility; the Contact Centre; and IP Convergence.
Steve Blood, Vice President of Gartner Research, will give a keynote session on the topic of how and why organisations need to innovate and the role of Unified Communications. Blood will also be chairing the Gartner Unified Communications Magic Quadrant Visionary Panel debate, which is set to feature representatives from Cisco, Siemens and Avaya.
Microsoft's Chief Envisioning Officer Dave Coplin, will deliver a keynote on the changing role of technology in the workplace.
Siemens seminars will focus on amplifyTEAMS and the fact that technology is no longer all about products, but about end user benefits and convenience in ensuring effective teamwork across multiple communication channels.
Other features will include the Cisco Collaboration partner zone; the Jabra Networking Lounge; a Microsoft Conference on Lync Server, hosted options, Yammer, Office365 and Skype; and the Vidyo Visual Experience video wall.
"By attending Unified Communications Expo, visitors will gain valuable insights on how to improve business performance and communications strategies," adds Keeble.
