As businesses give employees more power to work wherever and
whenever they want, IT and business leaders are tasked with creating
connected, collaborative work environments that are optimized for all
devices. Rather than investing in point solutions that employees may or may
not use, many organizations are investing in Unified Communications (UC)
— more specifically, UC as a Service (UCaaS) or UC services
delivered through the cloud.

Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
With unified communications and collaboration (UCC), you can address these challenges by helping people to connect more efficiently and intuitively. You can use UCC to bring together multiple forms of communications, like voice, video and data services, and software applications into a single environment, making it easier to connect. Business processes improve as a result. When you embrace UCC in your business communications, you can increase employee collaboration and productivity in three major ways. First, it can reduce communications latency by making it easier to find the right person and get an answer to a business question. Second, it can help you to manage workflows by making it easier f
The rise of the cloud and mobile computing has rapidly changed the nature of enterprise cybersecurity. The old paradigm, where all work was done behind a company firewall, has been breaking down.
Employees work not just at the office, but also on the road and at home, on mobile devices and on their own personal computers. They’re no longer using a limited stack of enterprise applications. Instead, they increasingly require access to a wide variety of apps, cloud services, and new communication platforms.
Most large companies have already made investments in tools that make video webcasting possible. Video is the most
vibrant and intimate medium that executives can use to convey information to large, far-flung internal audiences. Video
helps keep employees on the same page about company branding, strategic direction, and externally-facing stories and
messaging. It facilitates the transparency and authenticity that today’s employees demand.
CEOs of large, global corporations are frequently the catalyst for enterprise live streaming because they know they
can use it to make a powerful and personal connection with tens of thousands of remote employees—efficiently and
cost-effectively. They support using technology to foster communication and transparency, leading to a more engaged,
productive workforce. They recognize the power of video. And they see how engaged, satisfied employees can collectively
strengthen their company’s competitive advantage and enhance their bottom line.

Coaching is all about maximising performance, regardless of whether it’s a superstar looking to reach greater heights, a new hire wanting to start off on the right foot, or even a struggling employee who needs to improve.

reach their full potential?
