Changing UC architecture using a flexible composability designDate: Jun 28, 2012
With new drivers changing the UC landscape, this video blog considers a UC architecture based on composability design for ultimate enterprise flexibility.
Unified communications used to mean buying products from a UC vendor to deploy on-premises or possibly going the UC service route. But the UC landscape is changing due to a variety of drivers -- increasing consumerization and mobility, the growing use of video, and cloud application delivery.
In this video blog, CIMI Corp. President Tom Nolle discusses what needs to happen next to address the UC opportunity. Changes may include the need to create a UC reference architecture that focuses on composability -- a flexible system design with interrelated components that can be used in various combinations to unify worker communications and applications. While it's a big change, Nolle argues it's what needs to happen next in the UC market.
