We see it as including the following capabilities:Unified Messaging – this brings your voice and other messages to your inbox, eliminating the need to check messages on your cell phone, office voice mail and then you email on your computer. A huge labor saver in my opinion.Presence/Instant Messaging/Chat – knowing someone else’s availability, then having the ability to exchange short text messages. Some people around here call this “Interrupted Messaging”, but you get the point.Desktop Sharing and Collaboration – this is in my mind one of the most powerful parts of UC. Having the ability to share your desktop and applications with others while working together in real-time. I use it all the time and it saves untold number of spreadsheets going back and forth via email. It also seems to help address some of the attention issues found with today’s multi-tasking – now I can get my co-workers to see exactly what I need them to see at the same time.Voice – still the most powerful form of personal communications, but integrating it into your desktop environment.Video – still catching on and with select applications, adding video to communications helps improve comprehension and deal with the dreaded multi-tasking.Conferencing – bringing multiple people together to talk, see each other and share a desktop. Last but not least, Mobility – taking all these capabilities with you on the road and out of the office via smartphones, laptops or shared computers.As we talk about each of the steps the UC migration over the next few slides , I’ll be pointing out which of these capabilities are introduced to the business using a series of icons shown on the bottom right..So let’s get started with the UC migration strategy.
