It’s been an active few weeks — er, months — in UCC, and this week is no exception.
Reflecting on the pace at which this vertical has evolved, I like what André Luis Atique wrote in his column (link below) about the symbiosis of architecture and technology: “Both closed and public spaces are adapting to the demands brought by humanity, becoming more adapted to the remote and the virtual. However, the spaces need to be well-harmonized to make this reality pleasant, exciting and able to generate even more engagement in people.” This was a great read, and it transitions us nicely into a few things we’re seeing in UCC today — like new CCaaS offerings from SYNNEX, solutions for IoT from Black Box, an AI-based content camera from Huddly, a new WCD from Avocor, and so much more I’ll have to trust that you read the issue rhetorical cover to cover to find out for yourself.
Before I let you go, please read SHEinnovates’ feature on Nancy Knowlton (of Nureva and, previously, SMART). Her sense of self and balance is so refreshing. The advice Knowlton would give to her younger self: “Be active; exercise. Get outdoors into nature. Get lots of sleep. Take care of your physical health.”
I think I’ll take her advice as we head into the weekend.
