Demos Highlight Leadership in Managed Video Services -- Dimension Data booth #529

User adoption is the number one challenge many organizations face when investing in video systems. As a result, there is a growing need for the support and guidance of an experienced partner to drive adoption and ongoing usage of video solutions -- a key requirement to generate a positive return on an organization's technology investment. Dimension Data will demonstrate its recently-launched Managed Service for Visual Communications (MSVC), which provides flexible monitoring, maintenance and support for video endpoints -- including on-premise, off-premise or hybrid solutions -- with 24x7x365 local language support and an on-demand video help desk.

"This year's show gives us an opportunity to highlight our continued leadership in converged communications," said Scott Cruikshank, director of converged communications at Dimension Data. "In addition to our new MSVC service, we were recently recognized as Cisco's first global Authorized Technology Partner (ATP) for its TelePresence solutions. This acknowledgement allows Dimension Data to provide Cisco TelePresence solutions across its market of 49 countries worldwide and underscores Dimension Data's market leadership and operational excellence in visual communications."

Furthermore, Forrester Analyst, Art Schoeller, will present the following 30-minute sessions in the Dimension Data booth (#529) on Tuesday, March 27, 2012:

  • Putting the User at the Center of the New Collaboration Experience (12:30 -- 1)
  • SIP Trunking: Key Considerations for Design and Deployment (2:30 -- 3)
  • Mobility and BYOD Best Practices (3:30 -- 4)
  • Contact Center Spending Plans: Innovation and Differentiation (4:30 -- 5)

Numerous Dimension Data executives will be on site and available during the conference, discussing key topics such as SIP trunking migration, enterprise mobility, video adoption and virtual computing. If you're interested in setting up a briefing or demonstration, please contact: [email protected]
