Persistent Systems Participates in Cisco Collaboration Summit; Releases Enterprise Collaboration Strategy Whitepaper

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 17, 2011) - CISCO COLLABORATION SUMMIT 2011 -- Persistent Systems (BOMBAY: PERSISTENT) (NSE: PERSISTENT), the leader in outsourced software product development services, today released its 'Developing the Enterprise Collaboration Strategy' whitepaper at the Cisco Collaboration Summit 2011, November 14-17, 2011. Persistent Systems is a silver sponsor of the summit where it is showcasing its Cisco Quad expertise.

At the Summit, Persistent Systems unveiled a roadmap for developing a robust enterprise collaboration strategy in its first of a series of three whitepapers on collaboration. The paper maintains that collaboration is not only about communication but connecting the resources to improve business across the enterprise. Currently, social collaboration is not considered a business imperative, but the social revolution is gaining pace. To get ahead of the curve, organizations need to develop a business-driven enterprise collaboration strategy and approach, which can then drive collaboration architecture and technology choices.

The whitepaper explores the three main steps that are necessary to develop a collaboration strategy: 1) defining where the organization is today, 2) identifying and defining a collaboration approach and 3) selecting the right technology to support the organization's specific collaboration needs.

"Today, collaboration is more than just a technology, it's about people and user adoption is the key to its success," said Sanjeev Sisodiya, VP - Enterprise Collaboration Practice, Persistent Systems. "In our whitepaper, we offer enterprises a perspective on how to maximize their chance for success by putting in the time and effort to develop a collaboration strategy that ensures collaboration tools are enablers of more efficient, more productive work, making the lives of the organization's employees, customers, and partners, easier and better."
