Not All Clouds Are Built the Same

VEducational Webinar from NEC and UC Experts

Irving, Texas - January 18, 2016 - NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, managed services and biometric solutions, today announced that it is sponsoring a new webinar titled, "Not All Clouds Are Built the Same." Hosted by Enterprise Connect and No Jitter, the 60-minute webinar will cover cloud trends for 2016, best practices, and will include successful Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) case studies. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, January 20 at 2 p.m. ET.

With hundreds of cloud providers and technology solutions, the options can be overwhelming. However, not all cloud solutions are built the same. Webinar attendees will discover how to implement a cloud-first strategy while maintaining compatibility with their own on-premise solutions.

Webinar attendees will learn:
The four categories of cloud providers
Public, private, hybrid - which is right for your business?
Cloud benefits that are accelerating business transformation
Cloud trends in 2016
Insights from successful UCaaS case studies

"Many of the first-generation cloud communications services were built for small businesses", said Dave Michels, principle analyst at TalkingPointz and Buffalo Communications. "Today, there are a vast number of players in the cloud communications space, but few have the foundation and stability to meet enterprise-level demands."

As a leading technology provider of strategic IT and communications solutions, NEC brings more than 100 years of expertise in technological innovation to empower people, businesses and society. To address the growing adoption of cloud communications among organizations, NEC recently launched UNIVERGE BLUE Business Cloud Services.
