Project Description

Cisco Vs. Microsoft: Customizing Your Cloud UC Deployment

The two major vendors in the Unified Communications space, Cisco and Microsoft, are both strongly promoting their cloud UC deployments. If cloud UC is on your enterprise’s roadmap, but you don’t want to move to either the Microsoft cloud or the Cisco cloud, what then? What do you do if Microsoft Teams or Cisco Spark don’t meet your needs, but the current products, Skype for Business and CUCM/Jabber, do? Does it really have to be one vendor or the other, or can it be both?

In this webinar, Dr. Brent Kelly, a leading analyst/consultant and presenter of the popular Cisco vs. Microsoft session at Enterprise Connect, will address the issue of moving UC to the cloud using solutions from these vendors. You will learn:

  • Planning elements that are similar regardless of which vendor is chosen
  • Considerations for organizations with Cisco voice and Microsoft Skype for Business currently deployed
  • Nuances involved in the cloud migration for organizations with multiple locations
