4 Reasons Global Enterprise Need Cloud

Written by Martin Borowski, Posted in Contact Center, ComputerTalk

Many global enterprises choose to manage their own technology, and with good reason. When platforms like the contact center are serving thousands of employees and millions of customers worldwide, you can’t afford to miss a beat.

Many enterprises view self-managed, on-premises solutions as more reliable and easier to control. In reality, modern-day cloud solutions are as reliable as (sometimes more reliable than) on-premises solutions. Some of the benefits to the cloud are obvious, such as cost savings, no need to manage infrastructure and reliable high availability. However, when deciding between cloud and on-premises, there are more things for global enterprises to consider. Here are 4 compelling reasons why global enterprises need the cloud:

To Cloud or Not to Cloud - the Hybrid Option

Written by Vivian Pow, Posted in Contact Center, ComputerTalk


To cloud or not to cloud is a question to which many organizations are still trying to find an answer. Go here to find out some of the common misconceptions and considerations you should keep in mind when trying to decide.

An option that is often forgotten is hybrid. 

Organizations with hybrid contact center deployments have some of their contact center applications in the cloud and the rest on their telephony infrastructure on-premises. This model bridges existing on-premises infrastructure and the cloud, helping organizations move towards a full cloud deployment or maximize the life of existing on-premises tools.

For hybrid deployments, on-premises and cloud technologies should not only co-exist but also complement each other. For example, voice recording may be on-premises, while advanced interaction analytics and quality monitoring can be housed in the cloud.

In contrast to a typical office environment, the contact center is more complex. In a typical office, standard telephony and IT systems are generally sufficient. In a contact center, integration with third-party systems, data collection and recall, and numerous other tools that end users have need to be considered. This greatly influences service delivery choice and set-up considerations.

Contact center experts can help your organization navigate the complexities around contact center environments, including hybrid set-ups.
