4 Problems with the UC Market

February 27, 2017

On a LinkedIn blog, Telarus co-founder Patrick Oborn writes about the fact that 72% of businesses have not transitioned to cloud communications. 72%!!!

VOSS Solutions has been a Cisco shop for many years. Now they are launching VOSS-4-UC, a management platform for the hybrid Cisco and Microsoft environment, which I would imagine is how many Fortune 5000 companies operate. VOSS also hired a Skype for Biz Chief, in a nod to the growth of Office365+Skype4B.
