Topics include:

Collaboration Services
UC and Personal & Web-Based Services Muscle into CSP Territory -
Will CSPs, UCaaS, and SI's Fight it Out or Collaborate?

The collaboration market is expanding with new services via unified communications and the emergence of personal & web-based services. Meanwhile, traditional standalone audio and web conferencing use continues to grow. As all communication becomes more personal and unified into a single interface, does the market rally around one major delivery mode, or is there room for more? This session will detail the state of the collaboration services market, where it is headed, and how to position services for the next phase of growth.
Focus lead Analyst: Marc Beattie, Managing Partner, Wainhouse Research

Personal & Web Based Conferencing Services
Going from Meetings-at-a-Distance to Working From Anywhere

Think web conferencing is just about sharing screens and giving presos? Three technologies - high performance video & VoIP, next-gen mobile clients, and the application of team workspace / social networking principles - are transforming this space. What is the state of these technologies, who are the providers, and where are the opportunities for CSPs?
Focus lead Analyst: Andy Nilssen, Senior Analyst, Wainhouse Research

Unified Communications
UCaaS - Cloud-Based UC

Are there viable alternatives to MS Lync? How can CSPs commoditize UCaaS? Is this a David vs. Goliath scenario and if so, what are the opportunities for value-added CSPs in this space? Lastly, in an exploration of multi-tenant vs. multi-instance arrangements, what is the value proposition for CSPs?
Focus lead Analyst: Bill Haskins, Senior Analyst, Wainhouse Research
