Enterprise Connect 2015: News, trends and video

March 16-19 from Orlando, Florida


Enterprise Connect Conference 2015

This year, Enterprise Connect, a leading unified communications (UC) conference, marks its 25th anniversary. The UC market has undergone considerable change in that time, yet the important perennial themes are on the schedule this year, along with more recent UC issues like cloud-based UC, WebRTC and video services. And mobility is once again on the move as messaging apps look to challenge the incumbent big guys in the enterprise collaboration market.

The technologies, albeit recurring, have morphed marginally in recent years since the tools are still so new – and exciting. From the conference floor at Enterprise Connect 2015, we explore the top trends, products, vendors and more.
