LA QUINTA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 1, 2016) - This week at the BC Summit 2016 in La Quinta, California, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) will explore the top Unified Communications (UC) trends affecting enterprises today: the transition to Skype for Business and the adoption of UC cloud services. AVST will also demonstrate the power of CX-E -- with its suite of enterprise-class UC applications that enhance Skype for Business deployments.
AVST President & CEO Hardy Myers was selected by BCStrategies for two sessions at BC Summit. Myers will participate in a panel titled "Success Stories," held on Wednesday, November 2 at 1 p.m., which presents case study examples that explore best practices, strategies and tactics from leading UC vendors. Also on Wednesday, Myers will give a presentation titled, "Enabling the Enterprise Evolution to UC: Microsoft and Cloud," held at 4:45 p.m.
"The UC market is undergoing rapid and fundamental change at a pace we have not seen since the advent of UC in the mid '90s," said Myers. "With UC cloud adoption going mainstream, and Microsoft emerging as a dominant player, AVST is uniquely aligned to enable customer migrations to the cloud and/or Skype for Business over time."
"With more than 30 years of innovation in UC and a global following of more than 20 million users, AVST has its finger on the pulse of the most important issues affecting the market," said Jim Burton, Co-Founder of BCStrategies and Producer of BC Summit 2016. "This long-standing history -- coupled with their focus on Skype for Business applications and leading UC interoperability -- puts AVST in a perfect position to share their expertise with others in the industry."
