Four trends in recent enterprise telecommunications
- U: Unified Communication & Collaboration
- S: Social Networking
- I: Intelligent Mobile & Applications
- C: Cloud Computing
1. Unified Communication & Collaboration
The service connectivity between channels is improving to allow communications whenever and wherever the user wants, through UC. It makes effective collaboration, such as conferencing, and enables quick decision making. There is a continuous need for collaborative solutions to enhance corporate competitiveness and maximize service efficiency.
2. Social Networking
Social networking brings the transformation from the existing visible organization into an expert-centric virtual organization. Also, SNS activities like Micro-Blog, Twitter and Face Book are gaining importance from a personal information exchange channel into corporate business and commercial tools for marketing and PR. Therefore, enterprise telecommunications system becomes required to evolve into one that allows operation and management for not only internal usage but external service offerings.
3. Intelligent Mobile & Applications
With the recent development in mobile communication devices, the work environment is also becoming increasingly mobile, demanding more and more Enterprise Mobility Services. This increases the importance of real-time collaboration among mobile devices, access to corporate system, and collaboration among staffs working mobile.
4. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing provides the scalability and flexibility for anywhere, anytime access and sharing through the Internet technology with centralized computing and IT resources. This will enable: 1) access to corporate servers and applications regardless of locations; 2) switching from traditional office to personal and Internet-based work environment; 3) real-time sharing and collaboration. As a result, products and solutions based on virtualization will become more important.
