Unified Communications Week in Review: Daxcom, Mitel, Cisco & More
Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in Unified Communications this week.
The week started off with the news that a new report from Synergy Research Group has named Cisco a leader in the UC market. Although the company has not caught up with overall leader Microsoft yet, it’s certainly gaining. Cisco has its advances in premise-based solutions and several new technologies to thank for its rise in status. You can find the statistics, along with everything else you need to know about Cisco’s race to beat Microsoft, HERE.
Next up, Erik Linask took a look at how team collaboration is bringing a new wave of truly unified communications to the workplace. As he points out, “…the term Collaboration has taken a twist recently, moving away from the more traditional communications platforms and, instead, spawning a new category of software as much aligned with today’s consumer social messaging phenomenon as it is with business communications.” You can learn about the key trends that are driving the adoption of these applications HERE.
Speaking of collaboration efforts, Daxcom has selected Mitel for its unified collaboration and collaboration (UCC) solutions. Frank Svendsen, CEO of Daxcom, commented on the company’s decision to go with Mitel by saying, “With Mitel's scalable, innovative solutions and services, our customers will experience seamless collaboration and communications to provide real business value, through greater agility and increased efficiency.” Everything you need to know is HERE.
