UC for Mobile Workers


There is growing interest in providing unified communications (UC) support for mobile workers. Vendors are extending their enterprise UC platforms to support devices such as Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, and Apple iPhone via browser-based clients and apps. It’s important to integrate mobile workers into unified communications (UC) plans, while supporting a broad range of mobile platforms. Seventy-five percent of companies now have a mobility strategy, and those with one universally say it is either extremely or very successful. Thirty-eight percent of companies are adding support for iPhone in the next 12 months.

The bottom line is IT organizations should look for mobility solutions that support a growing breadth of mobile platforms. Pro-actively plan to incorporate mobile devices into your UC strategy.
