    Wed 17th May 11:00 to 11:30

    Microsoft UC – A successful transition to the cloud

    Many organisations find themselves in a situation where they see the advantages of Office 365 and cloud-based UC, but the transition from on-premise UC to the cloud is either too hard or too costly. Issues such as a successful on-premise model, or existing legacy kit that hasn’t reached end of life, may stand in the way of a cloud strategy. In this presentation, Christopher Martini will look at the challenges and differences between on-premise and cloud, and examine successful ways to manage that transition.

    Wed 17th May 13:40 to 14:10

    Virtualisation, Mobility and the Convergence of Voice and Video with the Digital Network

    Digital disruption has reached a tipping point: Organisations have to transform, or become irrelevant.  And it's the delivery of applications, data and now even telecoms traffic - both voice and video - at speed, on any device, simply and securely, that's central to this transformation. What does this mean for the network now everything in the organization is digital?  Ian Evans from VMware will talk about the digital network and the fundamental roles that virtualisation and mobility have in delivering convergence: from Unified Communications as a virtualised application, through to solving the technical difficulties supporting UC on a virtual desktop, to managing a UC application on a mobile device along with all other apps.

  • It's Past Time to Restructure the Internet for Better Security Add to Schedule
    Curtis Peterson  |   RingCentral  |   Networks, Analytics & Security

    Networks, Analytics & Security Theatre

    Wed 17th May 13:40 to 14:10

    It's Past Time to Restructure the Internet for Better Security

    Recent mass Internet attacks have highlighted how easy it is to take down large parts of the commercial Internet by targeting Domain Name Servers (DNS). They have also exposed a fundamental security flaw of the Internet: a packet-based architecture that is more than 30 years old and that makes it way too easy for adversaries to map and attack foundational services like DNS, as well as specific websites and cloud services. With so many businesses and other organizations relying on the Internet for their essential functions, it's past time we beefed up our Internet security by graduating to a flow-based networking architecture.

    In this presentation, RingCentral's Senior Vice President of Cloud Operations shares his thoughts on why today's aged Internet security is no match for modern security demands, and how we can fix it.

    Wed 17th May 14:20 to 14:50

    Digital Ice Breakers: Chat Bots, AI and Beyond

    We are currently going through another information revolution, and at the heart of this transformation are chat bots. Bots make it simpler and quicker to connect users with information and services using natural interactions. Personal assistants are bridging the gap between humans and services in way that seems like something out of science fiction.
     
    In this talk Lilian will explain what Conversations as a Platform is all about, from personal assistants and chat bots to Machine Learning APIs. Lilian will also go through existing, real world case studies and the challenges of developing chat bots using the Microsoft Bot Framework.

    Wed 17th May 15:00 to 15:30

    Foolproofing the 4th Network

    Network readiness is critical to implementation of a successful UC platform, but where does the network end? Collaboration doesn’t work when it’s a standalone application- it must be blended into the fabric of your customers daily personal and professional life. Business imperatives are driving flexible working, and that means call quality is not defined just by the quality of the connection, but by the environment the user is in whilst trying to collaborate. Come hear how the Plantronics evolved our culture, migrated to flexible working and architected a solution to fool proof the 4th Network.

  • Why Mixed Reality is the future for today’s workplace Add to Schedule
    Max Doelle   |   Kazendi  |   Keynote

    Keynote Theatre

    Thu 18th May 11:40 to 12:10

    Why Mixed Reality is the future for today’s workplace

    The workplace and the way we communicate with both colleagues and clients is changing rapidly. New tools are required to support these emerging behaviours. Today's smartphone simply does not cut it.

    As Europe’s leading HoloLens development studio, Kazendi is creating pioneering solutions with Mixed Reality for brands such as Unilever, Allianz and Lloyds Bank.

    Developed by Microsoft, HoloLens is a Mixed Reality device that layers interactive holograms over its environment.
    With Hololens, Mixed Reality can bring staff from the cloud to the boardroom, speed up tasks, and turn sketches into 3D models that can be modified in real-time.

    This is not the future. Kazendi is making it happen now. Max will show you on stage and you can try for yourselves in our demo area.

  • Contextual communication: How to transform customer engagement with task-based, friction-free comms Add to Schedule

    Customer Engagement Experience Theatre

    Thu 18th May 11:40 to 12:10

    Contextual communication: How to transform customer engagement with task-based, friction-free comms

    Communication is richer than ever before, but whilst tools are often successful on their own they are siloed and lack universal interoperability. If you try to introduce a customer or supplier to that ecosystem, "unified communication" becomes anything but and our external interaction all too often falls back to a bleak telephony and email world.

    WebRTC is already being used to make comms more web-centric and open. At the same time, we're getting more used to switching efficiently between high-attention, synchronous communication mechanisms like phone calls, and low-intrusion, asynchronous tools like IM.

    How are businesses using these trends to transform customer engagement?

  • How to make enterprise messaging secure, private and controlled in today's Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) workplace Add to Schedule
    Omri Sigelman  |   NURO Secure Messaging  |   Networks, Analytics & Security

    Networks, Analytics & Security Theatre

    Thu 18th May 12:20 to 12:50

    How to make enterprise messaging secure, private and controlled in today's Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) workplace

    In this session NURO will discuss the problem enterprises face from their employees bringing BYOC collaboration apps into the workplace. Mobile group collaboration apps will account for half of all team coordination and communications by 2018 (Gartner). Yet fewer than one-in-ten companies today actually have processes in place to regulate its use. The session will examine the size of the problem along with potential threats. It will also ask who should be most concerned and suggest ways to make collaboration secure, private and controlled without inconveniencing device owners.
