Enterprise Connect 2018
Greetings from Orlando where Enterprise
Connect 2018 just concluded. It was a
great four days of reconnecting with colleagues, presenting thoughts, and
exploring new technologies.
You would already know that if you
were in my team-chat application where we’ve been discussing the show. The industry thinks you’ll be there shortly,
because every large presenter showed their version of one. Is it hype or reality? Well, to answer that question this year, in a
break from my usual style, I’m going to tell you about it instead of having you
read about it.
On the last day of the conference
I had a great chat with UC Today’s Patrick Watson and fellow industry analyst
Tim Banting of Global Data PLC. We
discussed our impressions of what we saw. Click the photo below to listen to our
thoughts and personal opinions.
That’s it for Enterprise
Connect 2018! Look for my next bog (if
not sooner) from InfoComm 2018 in June.
I’m excited to be deeply involved in the authoring and coordination of
that conference, as we’re planning a powerful UC track, and an amazing Emerging
Trends day that will include honoring (and listening to) some real industry
superstars as this year’s group of Emerging Technology Fellows. We’ll hear from the likes of Pete Putnam, Steve
Koenig, Roopam Jain, Evan Kristal and others – and (coming
out of retirement for one last appearance) Andrew Davis.
