Avaya officials are pushing a cloud strategy for communications that will let enterprises, service providers and others build and use Avaya-based collaboration solutions in public, private and hybrid clouds.

The Avaya Collaborative Cloud framework was a central part of the keynote speech at the Enterprise Connect 2012 show in Orlando, Fla., given March 27 by Brett Shockley, senior vice president and general manager of applications and emerging technologies at the networking company.

Shockley also introduced a suite of cloud-based solutions, called AvayaLive. That includes the new AvayaLive Connect, an integrated unified communications (UC) offering for smaller businesses that includes everything from voice and voice conferencing to messaging, video and mobility.

The announcements out of Enterprise Connect are just the beginning of what Avaya wants to achieve in the cloud, according to Shockley.

"The Collaborative Cloud formalizes Avaya's cloud strategy," he said in a statement. "It expands our current portfolio of cloud-based solutions to encompass new [offerings] from the public cloud. Over the year, we will continue building new cloud-based solutions in a variety of highly flexible delivery models, enabling our customers and partners to access, utilize and extend the value of Avaya's applications, platforms and infrastructure."
