    Daring to be different: what it means to move your communications to the cloud

    Today, customer, employee and business expectations are forcing IT departments to think differently about their solutions. Sweating existing assets is no longer enough. IT leaders are being challenged to deliver a competitive advantage to their businesses. This is no truer than in communications where a growing mobile workforce is providing productivity, efficiency and agility like never before. 

    In this session, we will examine two approaches to your communications strategy - stick with the on-premise or hybrid deployments that you know or seek that competitive edge by moving to the cloud. We’ll review the pros and cons and equip you with a roadmap of activity to help you make the right decision for you and your business.
