Expert Tips on Integrating Mobile and Cloud Strategies

Integrate unified communications

Start with low hanging fruit such as an integrated unified communications (UC) as a service. It s a lower risk proposition focused on improving worker collaboration that naturally incorporates mobile devices in the mix, advised Setu Shah (@setushah2), business solutions manager, Orange Business Services. With UC as a service, an initial cloud infrastructure is put into place that can later be expanded to a wide array of mobile applications, or used to store mobile data in the cloud instead of on the device itself. It s a great first step for figuring out what does and will not work in a mobile focused cloud for your organization when it comes to security parameters, bandwidth levels, and device management.
