Business video Quick Start

  1. 1. Telepresence for everyone, everywhere. Business Video Quick Start
  2. 2. The New Way of WorkingToday organizations face greater business demands and a more competitive marketplace. Many arelooking towards TelePresence and high quality video conferencing to find new ways to drive businessagility while reducing costs. Industry research from the Aberdeen Group through Forrester and Gartnerhave all confirmed that effective communication and collaboration amongst executives, employees,suppliers, and customers is a must – regardless of geography.As an example, an Aberdeen study conducted in 2009 surveyed over 500 companies – all in differentdisciplines – and uncovered the following common traits amongst the top 20% market performers: 54% of employees use video collaboration 60% tracked and measured the ROI of the video deployment These companies delivered a 94% return per annum on their investment These companies reduced their travel (and associated budgets) by 42% 91% more likely to have business to business video collaborations.Of course, these efforts are not only conducive to reducing costs and productivity but the face-to-faceexperience of facilitating ad hoc meetings from remote executives, to outside vendors is deliveringtangible competitive advantage in today’s fast moving markets. Although most experts agree on thevalue of a face-to-face meeting and that 60%+ of communication is non-verbal, many of our clients dontknow how to get started. TelePresence, as seen on the television show 24 and within the broadermarketplace and across disciplines, delivers a compelling experience; however, the age old questionsremain: Where should my organization invest to deliver a quality experience across the enterprise? What resources do I need? How will this solution be managed? Scheduled? Operated on a day to day basis? Who and how will I manage the Help Desk? How to I ensure ease of use through the CXO suite? How do I ensure the tools are adopted to drive the ROI/TCO we expect? How to continue to capitalize on revenue growth while maintaining profitability? How to keep Cost of Services low while Executive/Customer intimacy high for Top accounts? This includes Managing HR/turn-over of resources Continued control of Operational expenses: Travel, IP Equipment & Network Utilization, Real- Estate Consolidation, etc. How to improve Business Processes and Division Optimization? Including: Resource Utilization and Realization (avoiding downtime) Supporting mobile Executives/personal (home or on the road) To increase the ability for more effective knowledge transfer To increase the ability to leverage a global talent pool To increase collaborative interaction between partners and vendors 2

  5. 5. Step 2 – IT Controls, Dialing Plan Simplicity, B2B/Work fromHome and UC IntegrationVisual Communications ServerThe TANDBERG Video Communications Server (VCS) is a keyarchitectural element in our total TelePresence solution – the “PBX” forvideo: The VCS provides H.323 Gatekeeper, SIP Registrar, SIP<>H.323 inter-working. Also provides call admission control, authentication, address translation This VCS allows for common dial plan and shared resources with your VOIP environment. This drives ease of use and facilitates adoption VCS supports DHCP (for mobile systems) and alias resolution for dialing video units by “phone numbers” (e164) or email addresses (H323 ID). Secure Firewall Traversal using the H.460 Standard to enable home workers, the traveling executive, and communications with suppliers, partners, vendors, and customers. Bandwidth Management and Gateway/SIP proxy functionality. VCS is the Server application for high quality PC video for MOVI (below) or Microsoft OCS integration if this need exists or is desired.As video proliferates across room systems, desktop systems, PC and mobile systems it becomesincreasingly important to integrate communication capabilities across video, voice and applicationdomains facilitating reaching people rather than devices. Single number dialing, dial-by-name featuresand optional FindMe capabilities of VCS make it possible to reach out across communication domains tofind the user according to the routing rules they have invoked. With this capability users can easily reachout and engage whoever is needed as they are needed with assurance that the called party can bereached. 5
  6. 6. Step 3: The Anywhere ExperienceInstall an environment that allows your organization to implement technology and receive economies ofscale in productivity and dollar savings Different endpoints and cost positions based on user requirements (manufacturing floor, suppliers’ location, home office, large conference room, immersive studio, executive desktop, PC, etc) and Leverage diverse bandwidth requirements given high cost and limited capacity available at different global locationsExecutive & Office Collaboration includes a small community of geographically dispersed executivesthat require regular collaboration in board room settings but also more regular inclusion in client projects,one-on-one meetings, P&L and operational discussions, and confidential strategy planning sessions. Theprimary goal of implementing solutions for this group is reduction in travel (cost) along with improvedproductivity (more effective use of the opportunity cost associated with travel reduction), and lessening of“wear and tear” associated with higher turn-over and burn-out.Experts and Skilled Resources incorporates horizontal experts and centers of excellence for generatingintellectual property and core value to clients and partners. These resources support high value projects,off-shore integration, R&D, etc. The primary goal is to make these limited resources a more regular part ofclient engagements while at the same time making their expertise available to incrementally morecustomers by virtue of lessened travel time, keeping utilization high and turn-over low is a perennialchallenge. Bring teams together into a virtual meeting room to leverage disperse talent pools and keep engagement costs low. React, plan, and create more quickly for shorter project intervals Traverse firewalls (internal/External) Client Management through OutlookMoviDesktop and Anywhere Users with Movi.
