What does unified communications (UC) look like in a Web 2.0 world? The proliferation of applications accessible through multiple devices can be an incredible IT challenge. The convergence of enterprise tools and Web 2.0 apps, like social media, brings new opportunities to the enterprise, but also new risks and an increased need for consistent policies across all UC communications.

Many organizations still need to prepare for the emerging threats and compliance implications that unified communications brings. This free 55-minute Webinar will explore issues to be aware of, examine best practices and review the benefits that drive UC value in the enterprise.
