The VCI-Group, the voice of collaboration users around the world, announced today the organizations that will be presenting at the first annual VC DireXions Summit to be held at the ITEXPO Conference in Miami, FL January 28th through the 31st at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The VC DireXions Summit will include forums for the leading manufacturers and service providers such as Polycom, Cisco, Microsoft, LifeSize, Vidyo, Blue Jeans Networks and others to present their interoperability plans for their future products and services.
VC DireXions Summit is the first event of its kind that will enable end-user customers to actually take control of the collaboration industry, set the course for interoperability and define the future of Visual Collaboration. The Summit brings together the leading users of video/web conferencing and collaboration from Fortune 500 powerhouses to up and coming SMB players, all wanting to leverage the power of visual collaboration to innovate, reduce costs and gain competitive advantage. Users will have the choice of three tracks: User DireXions, participants will hear directly from end users defining what features and functionality are most important for them, and why. Vendor DireXions, participants will hear from VC industry leaders and emerging players about what they are doing to facilitate interoperability. Finally, Training DireXions, will offer users education on interoperability features of today’s leading Visual Collaboration solutions and achieve certification.
The VC DireXions Summit invites end-user customers of visual collaboration to each present their TOP 2 issues with interoperability and application integration, along with the expected benefits for their company and the industry. The top 100 issues as determined by a VCI-Group panel are selected for presentation at the VC DireXions Summit where they are then recorded and made available for viewing on-line.
Additionally, VCI-Group, in concert with Compass Business Solutions, will provide two (2) collaboration and videoconferencing certification classes at the VC DireXions Summit. VCI-Group, through Compass Business Solutions, will provide training and certifications in Interoperability and Introduction to Collaboration and Videoconferencing.
