Hi UC :), I am a regular reader of your website and i must say i find a lot of insightful information here especially for Collaboration and business process optimization. However, so far i have searched through and i have been unable to get any MODELS that businesses can use in adopting UC&C for business process optimization. Is it possible that you refer me to some of these? I mean like a MODEL or STANDARD kinda for use in adopting UC&C so as to ensure business process optimization within say Financial institutions? Thank you.

HI Marty;

I’m doing a cost analysis for a clientr to determine who has the best price for the features they need but all the vendors I interviewed bundle and package their offering differently causing an Apples to Orange type of comparison. Would UC Strategies have a recent Cost comparison template or Spreadsheet compiled already ?

Basically, my customer is looking to have a Presence in the “Cloud + one cloud presence on premise (Hosted VoIP w/ UC Features) for about 800 users. They’ve narrowed it down to Avaya, Cisco, Mitel, and NEC but all of them package and price it differently, What is the best way to solve this fractured analysis ? How would the data I compile be best displayed ?

I like this article on UC APAC trend FY 2012.
APAC market for UC is still a buzz word for many reasons.
Technology Adaptation is main issue.
Second Factor is Bandwidth issue ( excluding Japan/Australia/Korea etc)
But most important factor is telecom regulatory issues as well in most of APAC countries.

Besides this , also lot of awareness needs to be driven from the vendors/OEMs which is not happening. Almost all countries within APAC are more dependant on Telephony solutions.
The main worry is that some major countries are still on TDM , so UC is long way to go.

major vendors (XXXXXXXXX) need to play major role to drive IP based on which UC can be adopted or talked about. Not happening in Asian Markets.

I just registered on to your site today, and I'd like to ask if there are any articles on system security.

It seems that internet and cellular technologies are extremely vulnerable to hacking and phreaking. Just think about Wikileaks, Snowden and the intrusion experienced by the Royal Family in Great Britain. These two systems are extremely pourous. Attacks by terrorists would be a virtual piece of cake. Potential terrorists are at least as capable as the designers of the new systems.

Using my cell phone, I recently dialed my bank using the 800 number on the back of my visa card. Even before the first ring, the call was intercepted by an intruder. They wanted just about all my visa information, which I stupidly gave them, thinking I was connected to my bank. After a second prompt to repeat my information, I realized that I'd been had! I ended the call and called the 800 number on my bank's web site. I reported the incident and my card was cancelled. The intruder then called me 16 times, and the displayed calling number read 000-000-0000. Think about this - I was calling a number and someone else had installed themselves as the recipient. CLEVER.

My point is that wireline, be it copper or fiber is much more secure than newer technologies being developed and employed. Solid, physical connections are required to intercept communications. This just about limits intrusion to insiders.

I'm not against the innovations, but strongly feel that because we've had a system in place for decades, and it works fine, that abandoning it seems foolish.

Industry and regulators keep disussing "stranded costs". The POTS system has been paid for many times over. What's the issue?
