For enterprises, meeting the communication and collaboration challenges and opportunities of the mobile age has never been more important – or seemingly complex. Businesses strive to become more “connected,” delivering traditional business activities seamlessly across all mobile devices, carriers, and operating systems.

The objective? To give employees, customers, and partners near-real-time, actionable information when and where they need it. Connecting core enterprise processes supports business continuity and simplifies workflow. It also supports a balanced life for employees, whether at home, in the office, or at a customer site. The result is better collaboration, stronger customer relationships, and improved productivity.

Attendees of this week’s Enterprise Connect conference, March 17-20 in Orlando, Fla., will learn first-hand how communication and collaboration are transforming the enterprise. They’ll hear industry leaders discuss the future of enterprise communications and collaboration technologies; attend keynotes, workshops, deep dives, breakout sessions, and sponsored events; and have the opportunity to see the latest offerings from 150+ leading equipment, software, and service providers.

And across the event, one word will ring true: Transformation. Solving the transformation challenge means understanding what it takes to successfully migrate, design, and implement the right communications and collaboration solutions and architecture. Voice and network transformation are target areas for improving enterprise communication.

1. Voice transformation: 

Building a truly connected enterprise requires seamless collaboration among its constituents. Communication is key, and in the age of mobility, the communications bar has never been higher. Voice transformation is helping businesses optimize total cost of ownership and productivity with a converged platform that integrates with mobility and collaboration applications. AT&T’s comprehensive VoIP solutions are helping to drive that transformation.

2. Network transformation: 

The connected enterprise empowers employee creativity and productivity as it powers business strategies and processes. At the heart of these connections is the network. Network transformation is a key step to creating an empowered and connected enterprise. With unified data, voice, video, and wireless on a converged MPLS-network infrastructure, businesses can reduce complexity and facilitate collaboration.
