Hoffman Estates, Illinois (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
CIOsynergy, a provider of thought leading events, today announced that Anthony Bartolo, Senior Vice President, Unified Communications and Collaboration at Tata Communications will be participating in the event’s CIOreality™ panel discussion, an exploration of Enterprise IT and its battles, on June 26, 2014 at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York, New York.
In a global work environment, where there is as much need to communicate and collaborate outside the enterprise as there is inside, the lack of interoperability, particularly when it comes to video, desktop sharing and collaboration tools, has acted as a barrier to collaboration.
Bartolo will share his perspective about how the closed systems that currently populate unified communications are actually damaging enterprise collaboration, and how both the industry and customers profit taking on new open standards.
“We are thrilled to have Tata Communications’ Anthony Bartolo at CIOsynergy New York. The company is known as a global telecoms leader at the forefront of driving interoperability and establishing open ecosystems that in turn enable true collaboration. Anthony is well placed to provide valuable insight into what CIOs should keep front of mind in order to unleash the full potential of their Unified Communications strategies,” says Patrick Mason, Director of Communications and Marketing at CIOsynergy.
“On the road, in the office and at home, collaboration platforms need to be universally accessible. If enterprises want collaboration to succeed, they need to take an agnostic and flexible approach that fits with their corporate culture when deploying Unified Communication strategies. We believe that browser-based interoperability and open standards is key to giving employees the tools to communicate seamlessly with anyone, anywhere, with the device of their choice – collaboration on their terms,” says Anthony Bartolo, Senior Vice President, Unified Communications and Collaboration, Tata Communications.
