“Unified communications (UC) adoption is accelerating, particularly in the cloud, and the pace is expected to remain brisk through 2020. In a Q&A with Channel Partners, Scott Kinka provided a sneak peek of the information they plan to share with attendees.
Channel Partners: What is driving today’s UC adoption?
Scott Kinka: Workstream collaboration is what is driving UC adoption. Ninety one of the Fortune 100 are using Microsoft Teams. Cisco Webex Teams is growing dramatically. Slack continues to have its base and it is growing. Consumerization of IT is forcing us to start with a topic and work backwards. So phones are important but are honestly just one of the channels that employees expect. And the data that goes into workstream collaboration apps are coming from email and documents that used to be backed up and portable. That is not the case any longer. Businesses will choose a workstream product and talk with UC providers about how to integrate enterprise voice features to it.
Join Scott Kinka, 100+ industry-leading speakers, more than 6,400 partners and 300+ key vendors, distributors and master agents at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, March 9-12.”
