Voice telephony remains critical to many business processes throughout enterprises, and companies retain substantial voice investments they seek to modernize and optimize via cloud migration and advanced mobility strategies. Voice teams in many enterprises also have an important role in crafting and executing the contact center architecture and infrastructure strategy. So it remains vital for enterprise IT leaders to understand the dynamics and challenges of delivering enterprise voice telephony for next-generation enterprise communications. In this session, a panel of enterprise leaders who focus on voice service will share a free-ranging, open discussion on what makes a strong enterprise voice strategy, how their companies are moving forward on voice, the challenges they're encountering, and how they see the future evolving for voice. You'll be encouraged to engage with these leaders to get your concerns addressed and gain from their insights.

  • What will enterprise voice service look like in 3 years? Who will be responsible for maintaining it and continuing to plan its future?
