Learn Video Collaboration Strategies at Today’s Gartner Symposium/ITxpo

This week’s Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando is covering the wide array of challenges facing IT executives and companies in the midst of digital transformation.

We hope you’ll meet with AVI-SPL experts at booth 717 at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort to learn about the value that video collaboration and unified communications solutions can bring to your business operations. You’ll see demonstrations of our Symphony management platform, which automates the scheduling, launching, and management of your meetings, and monitors your meeting rooms and devices. And you can meet with a representative from Sonic Foundry, which is handling the video capture of the educational sessions at this week’s Gartner event.

Today from 6 p.m. – 6:20 p.m., AVI-SPL’s Kirk Muffley, vice president of global accounts, will be on the panel for “UX Strategies to Create Value with Video Collaboration.” During this talk, you’ll hear insights from global F100 peers about the UX framework for creating value from your investment in video conferencing and collaboration in the digital workplace. Successful programs have user-centric models to design, deploy, embed, and measure UC and video technology as a business enabler. You’ll also get valuable information from a special client guest who will share lessons learned from their recent global collaboration roll-out and adoption program.

Webinar on Video Collaboration with Sharp

The goal of this free webinar, “Video Collaboration: Where It’s Going and How to Get There,” is to help technology professionals plan better video collaboration strategies. Each organization has different goals and variables. So the challenge becomes how to understand the key trends impacting collaboration and incorporating unique needs into a technology game plan.

Tom LeBlanc, editorial director for Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions, will discuss those challenges with expert panelists from Sharp and AVI-SPL. Together, they will analyze key trends that impact how collaboration solutions are being deployed and used in today’s work environments.

For instance, how important of a role will artificial intelligence (AI) play in the future of collaboration? According to a Microsoft survey, 95 percent of white-collar workers say they’d embrace AI if it helps them improve their workplace processes.

Saundra Merollo, senior sales engineer for Sharp, will explain which trends matter as you’re designing a collaboration strategy.
