Panel Discussion: "Video Managed Services: What's Next?"
There are many changes underway in the realm of video managed services – new technologies and market factors are having a significant impact and are reshaping the environment. David Danto, principal consultant for collaboration/multimedia/video/AV at Dimension Data, who also serves as director of emerging technologies for IMCCA, the non-profit collaborative communications industry organization, will provide first-hand insight on how the video managed services landscape is changing and how end-users are responding in the panel session, "Video Managed Services: What's Next?" The session, moderated by Wainhouse Research's Senior Partner and Analyst, Andrew Davis, will take place on Wednesday, March 20 from 1:30-2:15 p.m. in Osceola B. For complete details on the session, please see the conference agenda.

Demonstrations Showcase Expertise and Leadership in Mobility and UC&C
To deliver on today's business demands for increased flexibility and mobility, enterprises are moving toward a broad range of managed IT services spanning cloud, networks, video, security and communications. Additionally, there are more tools than ever for remote, real-time collaborative communications – including video, voice, email, instant messaging (IM) and document sharing.

With UC&C technologies, the challenge is not about tools and technology. Instead, it's about deployment, change management and user experience. The key to success lies with the ability to enable end-users to be more productive and easily use these tools.  

"The successful implementation of UC&C tools requires a user-centric approach," said Grant Sainsbury, vice president of advanced solutions at Dimension Data. "To realize greater efficiencies through UC&C deployments, organizations must first understand employee workflows, or processes. By selecting and deploying solutions with these processes in mind, UC&C tools will suit how different profiles of users work on a day-to-day basis. The result will be a UC&C deployment that is intuitive to employees, which makes them more effective and productive."

Dimension Data will demonstrate a range of demos, including its various enterprise mobility solutions, at its booth in the partner area of Cisco's booth, #904.
