Many ESI representatives in sales and technology attended the event of April 21 that was intended for the industry. We noticed that a new trend is becoming increasingly predominant among the subjects of different speakers; that is cloud solutions. Indeed, several presentations focused on the subject; whether with IP telephony solutions, Microsoft Lync or unified communications, participants could attend some very good sessions. ESI was also among the presenters at the event, where we discussed the challenges of securing enterprise data with the increasing usage of mobile devices.
We also noticed that this year, contrary to previous editions, no presentation used the expression “BYOD”, which does not mean the subject was not discussed. Presenters are now instead referring to the concept using the term “mobility”.
Although topics were not identified with the “security” tag, almost all presentations dealt with IT security in the solutions or business cases presented. Security is a must, it is an integral part of all business solutions, and customers and presenters are all aware of it! Convergence, unified communications and hybrid networks were also some of the topics discussed during the 2015 edition of this Telecom Event.
