LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/14 -- The consensus is in! Experts from TheDigest.com have determined the top 3 business VoIP providers of the year. After considering customer reviews, plan rates, help services, and quality of providers, the best 3 business VoIP providers stand as: Vonage, RingCentral, and Jive. VoIP, which stands for voice over internet protocol, is a digital phone system that uses a cloud-based communication system as opposed to traditional phone systems that use analog cables for transmitting signals. Thanks to the vastly expanding and easily accessible high speed Internet, VoIP providers can offer inexpensive and reliable services to businesses seeking more efficient modes of communication.
Vonage (formerly Vocalocity) serves small to medium-sized businesses best. Vonage is a dependable business VoIP provider, astonishingly ranking as one of the cheapest phone providers whilst offering one of the richest set of features available. Vonage's heightening features include a unified inbox for fax, email, and voicemail, call flip, voicemail transcription, and an award winning dashboard interface, along with several others. Offering unlimited local and long distance calling with flat rates and no contracts, clients with Vonage save between 50-80% on their monthly phone bill after switching away from traditional phone lines. Businesses looking to switch over to VoIP are lured in with Vonage's free IP phone for new customers and stay satisfied with Vonage's investment in their product. Vonage's low prices stem from their investment in VoIP technology, as they both own and develop everything they send you.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
