2018 finished on a big high for Aura Alliance, thanks to our annual partner conference in Asia. Held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 29th-31st October, the event drew together like-minded technology managed service specialists from across the globe, to discuss the changing world of global communications and collaboration.
Read-on for the key takeaways from the conference and to learn how the Aura Alliance is evolving to provide a truly global capability across AVAYA, Cisco, Microsoft and Genesys technologies.
Identifying key trends
Delegates at the Aura Alliance Partner Conference identified a number of key trends in the global communications space:
- Plans to shift to consumption-based operational models are more advanced than ever.
More aspects of communications technology are becoming available as on-demand services, with the likes of compliance and security taken care of. They’re flexible, scalable and more effective for global businesses.
- Digital transformation is being simplified by consolidating technology partners.
Rather than having multiple suppliers, it’s much simpler, more productive and more cost-effective for businesses to work closely with partners, who can deliver consistently on a global basis across a number of key technology fronts.
- Application and platform integration is still a significant challenge that businesses are struggling to resolve.
Gone are the days of one-dimensional communication. Businesses use a multitude of software and tools to meet their global communication needs. The current challenge is integrating these different applications and platforms to create a more practical, effective and sustainable solution.
- A consistent end-user and customer experience requires a consistent global strategy
Deploying and managing communications applications on a country-by-country basis is a barrier to delivering and maintaining a consistent user experience worldwide. Global businesses now need to plan and execute on a global scale, with a consistency of service and experience across multiple countries.
