Cloud Communications 2021: Your Strategic Plan

Communications, collaboration, and contact center systems are all being delivered from the cloud, to more enterprises each year. With the cloud growing in strategic importance, the question is what you use it for, who you get it from, and the costs and benefits for your enterprise.

In a special sneak preview of Enterprise Connect Orlando’s “Communications & Collaboration 2021” program, sponsored by RingCentral, this session will address strategic issues in cloud communications, so that you take away a clear picture of what the cloud will be able to do for you in the next three years.

Key questions we will address:

  • How will the competitive environment look for cloud-based communications? What will characterize the leading players and their respective value propositions?
  • Will cloud-based communications features and functions grow more similar to their on-premises counterparts, or more different?
  • What varieties of hybrid cloud architecture are we likely to see?
  • How should you think about Cloud Communications holistically, in the context of your enterprise’s broader move to the Cloud?
  • How might communications fit into your broader Multi-Cloud strategy?
