Is UC Succeeding or Failing?

By Blair Pleasant
5 Aug 2014

In this Industry Buzz podcast, Blair Pleasant moderates a discussion on whether unified communications is succeeding or failing. UC as we know it has been around for almost a decade. How are we doing? Has UC reached it's potential, do we see it as a failed experiment, or is it somewhere in-between? The vendors have great UC solutions that show the power of what UC can do, but are end users really using them? Do we need UC, or will business communications be done by mobile apps or mobile devices, and is that all we need?

Blair is joined by UC Experts Marty Parker, Michael Finneran, Art Rosenberg, Steve Leaden, Phil Edholm, Dr. Joseph Williams, J.R. Simmons, Jon Arnold, and Roberta Fox.
