Unified Collaboration And Technical Vision

  1. 1. Discover, Teach, Care & Learn<br />Unified Collaboration and the Next Generation Network<br />Matthew Jett Hall<br />Summer 2009<br />
  2. 2. What is Unified Collaboration<br />Today: people come to the work<br />Tomorrow: the work comes to the people<br />Anything, Anywhere, Anytime on Any Device<br />2<br />
  3. 3. Today: Silos of Collaboration Tools<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />3<br />Traditional Perspective:<br /><ul><li> Each mode is purposeful alone
  4. 4. Integration confers no benefit</li></ul>Unified Perspective<br /><ul><li> Click to communicate
  5. 5. Presence aware
  6. 6. Each mode integrates
  7. 7. Intensity of use demands integration
  8. 8. Get to who you need, when you need</li></li></ul><li>The Converged Collaboration Path<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />4<br />Network-Driven Communications<br />1837<br />1876<br />1984<br />2007<br />Software-Driven Communications<br />
  9. 9. Cyberinfrastructure : What?<br />Distributed knowledge communities that collaborate and communicate across disciplines, distances and culture<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />5<br />
  10. 10. Collaboration and Messaging<br />Electronic tools that support individual and group real time and asynchronous <br />Communication<br />Collaboration<br />Digital capture<br />Digital distribution<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />6<br />
  11. 11. VU Communities Collaborate …<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />7<br />
  12. 12. Across Disciplines, Distance, Time, & Institutions<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />8<br />
  13. 13. Vanderbilt University 2009<br />22,192 employees<br />32,820 Telephones<br />Many academic, professional, medical disciplines<br />333 acres, 18.2 million sq. ft.<br />238 buildings on Campus<br />100 Oaks<br />VMG Clinics<br />Various diagnostics, lab work, and imaging<br />Geographic dispersion<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />9<br />
  14. 14. What is Network Computing<br />The foundation of Cyberinfrastructure<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />10<br />
  15. 15. The Next Generation Network<br />Advanced Technologies<br />Streaming, real time video and audio<br />Unified collaboration, voice, data, sharing, presence<br />Fast access to large data stores<br />Converged data and voice<br />Zero downtime tolerance<br />Enables business agility<br />Software as a Service (aka in the Cloud)<br />Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity<br />Security and Compliance<br />Industry and Market Standards Compliance<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />11<br />
  16. 16. Real Time Protocols<br />matt.hall@vanderbilt.edu<br />12<br />
  17. 17. Short list benefits<br />Accelerate processes and improve response<br />Extemporaneous, real time collaboration<br />Enhanced collaboration among physically dispersed work forces<br />Improved collaboration through presence and status awareness<br />Increased availability and responsiveness<br />Ease of passing messages to colleagues (voice, cell, fax, text, or email)<br />Anything, Anywhere, Anytime on Any Device<br />13<br />
  18. 18. Collaboration requires<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />14<br />Access to others for<br />Decisions<br />Data<br />Analysis<br />Co-creation<br />Calendaring<br />Document Sharing<br />Media Access<br />
  19. 19. Presence and Awareness<br />Presence helps you determine, in advance, how another colleague can most easily and expeditiously be contacted.<br />Availability helps you indicate how a colleague can contact you, including what sorts of incoming contacts you prefer.<br />Anything, Anywhere, Anytime on Any Device<br />15<br />
  20. 20. Today’s Silo’d World<br />Fragmented in-boxes<br />Delayed collaboration<br />Different systems<br />Multiple log-ins<br />Silos of collaboration<br />Limited spontaneity<br />Single mode<br />Unknown availability<br />Unknown Presence<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />16<br />
  21. 21. Tomorrow’s Integrated World<br />One in-box<br />Real-time collaboration<br />Single log-in<br />Integrated collaboration<br />Extemporaneous <br />Spontaneity<br />Multi-modal <br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />17<br />
  22. 22. Integrated Collaboration Nexus<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />18<br /><ul><li>E-Mail
  23. 23. Voice Calls
  24. 24. Voice messages
  25. 25. Fax messages

  28. 28. Presence Control
  29. 29. App sharing
  30. 30. Directory Integration</li></li></ul><li>Find, Communicate, Collaborate<br />Click to Communicate<br />Presence and availability<br />Preferred mode of discourse<br />Integrated calendar <br />Real-time, synchronous web, video, voice, text, IM in addition to traditional electronic messaging<br />Removes collaboration latency<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />19<br />
  31. 31. Pressures<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />20<br />Anything<br />Anywhere<br />Anytime<br />Any media<br />Any Device<br />IT <br />is <br />Free!<br />Reliability<br />Availability<br />Serviceability<br />Security<br />
  32. 32. The Generations Defined<br />Traditionalists (62-83) “the Silent Generation, veterans”<br />Born: between about 1925 and 1946 <br />Cultural influences: Great Depression, World War II, Korean War, postwar boom era, GI Bill <br />Workplace values: loyalty, recognition, hierarchy, resistance to change <br />Baby Boomers (44-61) “ Sandwich Generation (many take care of children and aging parents)”<br />Born: between about 1946 and 1964 <br />Cultural influences: popularization of television, assassination of President John F.

  35. 35. Silos cover the Landscape: 2009<br />Duplicate, Disintegrated Capabilities<br />Voice<br />Data<br />Departmental Computing<br />Unnecessary expense<br />Variation: provisioning, maintenance, quality, availability, & support<br />Communication Silos<br />Modes and presence disconnected from one another<br />Phone tag, overflowing inboxes and voice mail accounts<br />Communications Fatigue<br />Multiple passwords <br />Multiple mailboxes: e-mails, voice mails, IM, and faxes<br />Multiple providers of web, conference, whiteboard, and sharing<br />Minimal extemporaneous collaboration<br />Anything Anywhere Anytime Any Device<br />24<br />
  36. 36. Costs of Doing Nothing<br />Consumers drive enterprise strategy<br />entrench on brand preferences  deepen silos<br />Use private communications for official business<br />Risk of disclosure / Loss of custody<br />Communication channels unaware of each other<br />Undocumented, unknown communications<br />Multiple networks and systems <br />Duplicate expense<br />Increase support complexity<br />Increase provisioning and de-provisioning overhead<br />Employ varied levels of skill, ability, and investment<br />Multiple directories create partial or stagnant information<br />Anything, Anywhere, Anytime on Any Device<br />25<br />
