In the knowledge economy, work is not a destination or a place people go – it has become an activity. The power of technology lies in bringing “work” to wherever people are.
Whether it’s homes, offices, coffee shops or public transport, mobile video collaboration technology is enabling increasingly open and flexible work environments.
Businesses today are operating in an intensely competitive and volatile economy and there is a mounting need to accelerate growth for lower cost, putting demands on existing resources. As a result, business leaders must find innovative ways to boost productivity, and video conferencing is proving to be a game-changer in this area.
In a recent Frost & Sullivan survey of C-level executives, 85% of the respondents indicated that their investments in video conferencing were driven by productivity benefits.
To enable workers to be more productive, it is critical to deliver video conferencing over personal endpoints – the concept of congregating in meetings rooms for group collaboration, while certainly an effective method for decision-making and communication, is not always a practical option.
Employees need nimble communications that adjust to various devices, infrastructure and networks, and consequently there is a need for a new architecture that ensures:
- Ability to run on everyday devices and clients over virtually any platform
- Support for varying network conditions without the risk of performance degradation
- A highly scalable and distributed multipoint infrastructure that is capable of extending the reach of video to thousands of endpoints.
Read this report to understand why Frost & Sullivan believes video communication is an essential tool in today’s competitive and highly distributed economy. Learn how video-enabled workflows help companies retain talented workers, accelerate decision-making and foster open innovation.
