Communications & Collaboration

The world is accelerating into the virtual workplace. Consumers and employees alike expect to access enterprises from any place, at any time, from any device. The challenge for business is to meet these snowballing expectations.

The complexity of communication & collaboration is not a passing trend, with enterprises already transforming to cope with new employee expectations. IDC forecasts global spending on communications and collaboration to grow 37% from US$21.6 billion in 2014 to US$29.6 billion in 2017.

A general rule of thumb is that the more 'knowledge workers' and 'Generation Y' staff members an enterprise has, the greater the take up and value of an effective collaboration environment.

Investment in communication & collaboration processes and systems can produce greater productivity, innovation and staff retention. Properly equipped enterprises can profitably mine the gold nuggets of knowledge and creativity in their workforce. It's not easy, but the journey is worth the effort.

Enterprises need to design a custom high-performance, edge-to-core communication & collaboration solution, from the data center to the mobile workforce. This solution must increase the value of an enterprise's collaborative applications, email, mobility, networking and VoIP investments.

For communications & collaboration success, all messages and data flowing between devices, needs to be managed and made widely available to people to facilitate their business activities. Many enterprise IT departments have a 'do it yourself' attitude to Communications & Collaboration, but too many fail.

Together, Thomas Duryea Logicalis and Cisco excel in helping businesses achieve this daunting communications & collaboration task, turning complexity into ease of use.
