Managing Unified Communications & Collaboration Services Efficiently and Effectively

Assuring the quality of Unified Communications (UC) and Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) services such as voice over IP (VoIP), video conferencing, contact centers, desktop video, telepresence, and collaboration services is not an easy task across a complex landscape of mixed endpoints, third-party providers, session boarder controllers, UC servers, gateways, and networks. Enterprise IT professionals face significant challenges with Unified Communications management and achieving real-time visibility into end-to-end performance for voice, video, and collaboration services. 

Complete Call Path Visibility is a “Must-Have” for UC&C Services

Impaired, degraded or unavailable UC&C services can grind a business to a painful halt and destroy one’s ability to effectively engage with customers or clients, prospects, partners, vendors, and other employees. Since UC&C services and business data services are often utilizing a converged infrastructure with endless inter-dependencies, complete and pervasive visibility is a must-have capability. For example, sophisticated contact centers play a crucial role as customer service professionals communicate with customers, citizens and residents. The quality of that communication and its impact on the personal experience has a direct impact to revenue, customer loyalty and even the safety of people for government agencies. 

Unified Communications Management and visibility for all facets of the UC&C services including rapid access to customer resource management services (CRM) is essential so IT professionals can see what is really going on in the environment and take the right corrective action in real-time to keep the services available and at the highest performance and quality levels.
