Working from home is so 1990s – written by Steve Bruno  

15 years ago, Microsoft shook the roof at Enterprise Connect with the announcement of Office Communications Server and the concept of “unified communications”. I was fortunate to be a part of the start of this revolution. The internet was just getting its running feet and what is the internet, but cheap, ubiquitous communication. The components of UC were already out there: IM via yahoo, Web Conferencing via Go to Meeting, IP Telephony owned by Cisco, and Contact Center solution for Customer Service dominated by Avaya/Nortel. They were all siloed and from multivendor land. The initial reaction was “what did Microsoft understand about Telephony and Network?”. They were lauded and lumped in with the disaster that was Windows Vista. Microsoft could never do what Cisco was doing! (was the general reaction from the thought leaders at the time.) How wrong they were. Two years later every vendor that attended the show had changed their branding and their titles to “unified communications this and that” and the race was on. Cisco clearly saw the threat and tried to launch their own email platform. It was a stunning admission when everyone realized the power and value of UC is not the network or the physical phone. It was the productivity solutions with communications modalities behind it that would eventually rule the day. Read the full blog here
