Davinci Comments on Alternative Workplace Strategy Webinar

Did you see the recent webinar on alternative workplace strategies? The webinar was titled, “Alternative Workplace Strategy: Aligning for Action.” This is a solid webinar that anyone exploring the notion of alternative workplace strategies should view.

In the webinar, Jeff Root, vice president of Product Marketing and Management for PeopleCube and Diane Stegmeier, president of Stegmeier Consulting Group, discussed some of the secrets to success of an alternative workplace strategy. At the core of the message: getting buy-in from key stakeholders and proactively addressing possible objections.

“Develop your change management strategy proactively, and as early as possible in the process of developing a new workplace strategy,” Stegmeier said in the webinar. “Don’t wait until you might face resistance. I guarantee you will face some.”

Unified Communications and the Virtual Office, Part 3

In our continued exploration of Unified Communications and the virtual office, we’ll take a look today at one component: web conferencing.

A veritable explosion of Web 2.0 tools and escalating need for real-time collaboration continues to draw users to web conferencing. The rising interest in cloud-based communications is further fueling growth in this market. As users look to accelerate team productivity and support a business model that fuels innovation with better and faster decision making, applications such as web conferencing are becoming a critical component of enterprise communications.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan finds that the web conferencing market revenues are expected to reach $2.85 billion in 2015, with a projected revenue growth rate of 17.2 percent, supporting a widening user base.

"The dominant theme in 2010 among web conferencing vendors is focused on creating easier to use solutions at attractive price points to move the market beyond a niche status," says Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Roopam Jain. "The overall outlook for web conferencing hosted services is robust; IT is making web conferencing services an investment priority as part of a bigger bundle of collaborative applications for mainstream communications."

Unified Communications and the Virtual Office, Part 2

Yesterday we looked at how Unified Communications—a systems-based approach to unifying telephony, instant messaging, presence, and Web conferencing—and the growth is astonishing—and the virtual office go hand in hand. Today we’re going to look at more forecasts and solutions.

Forrester forecasts that the market for Unified Communications within enterprises in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific will reach $14.5 billion in 2015. IDC had previously predicted that unified communications market in EMEA alone will be worth just over $8 billion in 2010 and will grow to $16.6 billion by 2014. Either way, that’s heavy validation for the concept of Unified Communications.

"It is important for all businesses to prepare and architect their communications environments in a more unified and services-oriented manner,” says Jonathan Edwards, research analyst, Unified Communications at IDC. “And one of the most significant factors impeding UC adoption today is the lack of interoperability assurance for customers between their existing and pending communications and networking investments and purchases.”

When you look to a virtual office provider like Davinci Virtual Office Solutions, you don’t have to worry about what goes on in the background. You can simply enjoy a suite of solutions like telephony, web conferencing and video conferencing seamlessly. Davinci Virtual Office Solutions has virtual offices in New York and smaller cities like Lawrenceville, Ga. Small businesses don’t have to invest tens of thousands of dollars in a Unified Communications solution when they rent virtual office space from Davinci.
