Twitter chat: Unified Communications


    Updated 11:00 am E.S.T. We wrapped up another engaging Twitter chat on Unified Communications and the drive for collaboration. Channel experts from Rogers and Cisco joined us in examining the power of collaboration and importance of connectivity solutions for businesses. The conclusion? It seems the participants of the chat all agreed that in today’s fast-moving world, effective communication means collaborating beyond your organization with easy-to-use tools. Legacy software restricts work styles, but also drives unsecured sharing and storage of corporate data. After all, security is everything and collaboration moves at the speed of trust.
