Most organizations understand the value of collaboration technologies such as voice and video conferencing, voicemail or customer collaboration platforms, but many lack the deep technical expertise and staff resources to successfully deploy and manage them.
Cloud collaboration is a newly emerging way of sharing and co-authoring computer files through the use of cloud computing, whereby documents are uploaded to a central “cloud” for storage, where they can then be accessed by others.
It brings together new advances in cloud computing and lets you use the power of the cloud, which plays an important role in people’s computing lives, to distribute collaboration apps to your staff or team. It also provides access anywhere, any time, on any device!
What is great, as it is becoming more and more necessary in firms operating in an increasingly globalised world. You can find more information about Cloud Collaboration at CDW’s Solutions blog.
“The way organizations work is changing, with employees no longer confined to working in the same physical location and customers increasingly involved in product and service development. As a result, collaboration technology needs are evolving,” said Christine Holloway, vice president of converged infrastructure solutions, CDW.
She added: “Today, organizations need new technologies that increase efficiency, accommodate a dispersed workforce and integrate customer communications, while freeing up IT staff to work on other projects.
Built upon industry-leading technology from Cisco, CDW Cloud Collaboration includes all the features necessary to provide organizations with top collaboration services (check the video below to know more.)
“As enterprises adopt collaboration technologies to quickly connect people with a high level of security to the resources and information they need to get work done, many businesses are requiring cloud solutions and looking for options from partners,” said Richard McLeod, senior director, Worldwide Partner Collaboration Sales at Cisco.
CDW’s Cloud Collaboration solution, powered by the Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS), provides organizations with exceptional flexibility in choosing the way that collaboration applications are deployed.
The capability to choose a hosted deployment option can also help organizations deploy collaboration technologies faster, while potentially lowering capital expenditures and operating expenses.
Collaboration encompasses a variety of communication tools and technologies, including voice and voicemail, mobility, video conferencing, contact center services, instant messaging and presence.
The cloud provides a mechanism for delivering an integrated mix of these capabilities while addressing drawbacks that are common to traditional Unified Communication rollouts.
