Enterprise communications is evolving from an emphasis on hardware and infrastructure to a focus on applications and integrating the communications function with business productivity applications. This in turn is changing the focus from communications as a standalone functionality, to an emphasis on how the enterprise enables collaboration. The Interop Collaboration track provides grounding in the infrastructure issues that enterprises are dealing with today as part of their legacy environment, but the stronger emphasis is on the collaboration environment that enterprises are migrating toward. Sessions will look at the ways of integrating communications into business processes and enabling collaboration via new media such as video, and new outlets such as social media. Attendees will get a complete view of the challenges and opportunities around the migration from communications to collaboration in the enterprise.
