“We know our user members are facing a lot of pressure to open up their video conferences and content sharing meetings to any device or end point,” said Toni Alonso, President of VCI-Group.“And we also know that many of our user members and our Alliance members have experience, suggestions and solutions to help our user members address their own BYOD issues. This is what our March 28th session is all about; helping our users prepare and plan for the BYOD tsunami.
