Research group Frost & Sullivan will be hosting a free webinar on the state of the enterprise communication market on Thursday 3 May at 19h00 and South Africans are invited to participate via a toll free number.

The briefing will offer a discussion of enterprise IP telephony evolution and practices that vendors are putting in place to remain competitive and will include a discussion on the impact of market and technology trends such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), communications integrated into business processes (CEBP), vertical focus, SMB focus, and unified communications (UC) and collaboration on the telephony market.
As enterprise communication infrastructures move to software-based models and vendors gain less and less from core telephony solutions, vendors must turn to services and applications to stay competitive in the marketplace. However, the extent to which they can gain revenue from applications and services will depend on, firstly, their communications platform architecture and, secondly, their ability to become an end-to-end solution provider for the customer.
Those interested in participating in the interactive webinar should send an E-mail to Patrick Cairns – corporate communications at patrick.cairns@frost.com with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, E-mail address, city, state and country. He will send the registration details upon receipt of the above information.
