UC cloud services and applications are ready to support a mobile workforce and simplify UC for enterprises.

In this university classroom, Kerravala examines how cloud-based UC can move infrastructure and complexity into the cloud, provide faster deployment times, cut costs and provide consistent features for the workforce regardless of their location.
