SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/04/14 -- Every business's goal is to become successful and profitable, and one of the best ways for them to do that is by finding an economically feasible way to communicate effectively, quickly, and cheaply with their various partners, customers, and clientele. Landline technology has been steadily becoming slower when compared to modern day technologies, which keep growing larger while consistently lowering their costs. If a business today is looking to simultaneously cut down on their telecommunication expenses while also increasing the speed and efficiency at which they can connect with the outside world, then they need to look into business VoIP providers.
There are a variety of benefits that a modern business can get by switching over to a business VoIP line. First of all, the service is much, much cheaper than a standard landline. Internet calling has and continues to get less and less expensive with each passing year, and those companies that provide business VoIP solutions have local plans as well as long distance or international, so there's no longer any real need to count up minutes like there had been in past decades. Aside from the financial benefit, there are quite a bit more features that come standard with VoIP than what companies get with basic landlines. These features are varied and there are different ones available with different business VoIP providers, but they are generally engineered to allow companies to maintain their existing relationships while making it easier to forge new ones.
There are a ton of business VoIP solutions out there, and each of them have their own distinct options, so how does one choose the very best for their company with so many metrics to consider? Luckily, the experts at VirtualPBXPhoneSystems.com took multiple criteria into account to create their ranking including: price, features, user reviews, expert ratings, and more. Overall, there were three top VoIP providers that outshined the rest of the competition:
Vonage is one of the leading names in the business VoIP industry, and it's easy to see why. They don't have any installation fees, nor are there any contracts. In addition to that, they have very low international rates and give their customers the ability to stay in regular contact with their clients while they're out of the office. Another thing they offer is a variety of smart phone apps, voicemail to email services, and a virtual receptionist, as well as many more options. They're a great choice for anyone who wants a streamlined and cost-effective VoIP service without any hassle.
If you're a small to medium sized business, then Mitel might be just what you need when it comes to business VoIP solutions. Their phone call sound quality is truly top notch while still being an all around affordable plan with a fantastic customer support team. In addition to that, they know how important their customers' peace of mind is and have their data-center facilities secured around the clock to guard against breaches and critical/confidential data loss. Mitel continues to strive towards all around excellence, so they should be near the top of anyone's list when they're shopping around for a VoIP service.
RingCentral is one of the most affordable VoIP services out there, but that doesn't keep them from providing the same quality as more expensive options. Installation is quick and they don't require any real hardware. Everything is managed through the cloud, including their mobile apps, conferencing features, fax service, and call management. In addition to that, their customer service is well-trained and always very friendly.
Internet technology has greatly surpassed landlines within the past years, and it's become very apparent that they'll be an important feature in any business within the years to come. Finding a good service is an important step developing a successful business, so take a look at the above business VoIP solutions to see which one would be best for your business.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.
