Vonage Executives to Discuss the Next Stage of Cloud Transformation at Enterprise Connect 2017

Named Best of Enterprise Connect Finalist for the Nexmo Voice API

HOLMDEL, N.J., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage (NYSE: VG), a leading provider of cloud communications for business, will expand upon its vision for the future of business communications through multiple speaking engagements at Enterprise Connect 2017. Vonage was also named a finalist for the Best of Enterprise Connect Award for the Nexmo Voice API. Enterprise Connect takes place March 27-30 at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

Vonage CEO Alan Masarek will participate in a general session panel entitled "What Role (If Any) Should Cloud Communications Play in Your Enterprise?", which will address the benefits of -- and differences between -- cloud communications and cloud services, and the impact of each for enterprise businesses in the future.

"The evolving needs of today's businesses demand the ability for employees to stay seamlessly connected to each other, the customers they serve, and the applications they use every day on any device, no matter where or how they choose to work," said Mr. Masarek. "To meet these growing needs, the future of cloud communications will not only include solutions for fully integrated, end-to-end business communications, but also the ability to engage with customers in new and more meaningful ways, empowering businesses to strategically compete in their industries.

"Not only does the cloud allow businesses to increase productivity, mobility and scalability, but it also enables them to provide their customers with personalized, contextual and exceptional experience, service and support, at every touchpoint, every time."

The Nexmo Voice API, which was named a finalist for the 2017 Best of Enterprise Connect Award, is the easiest way to build high-quality voice applications in the cloud.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets?

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
