It's no secret that mobile technology has revolutionized the way consumers conduct their lives. Mobile technology has become ubiquitous, influencing the business workplace and workforce. Last year, IDC predicted that 75% of the US and nearly 40% of the global workforce would be mobile and signs indicate that the rate of mobile growth is only being accelerated by the advancement of cloud technology, improved security, and more reliable network access.
In a world of seamless communications and collaboration, the connected mobile enterprise has the full context of its business processes with fluid and natural communications that permeate the entire workplace

(UCC), you can address these challenges by
helping people to connect more efficiently and
intuitively. You can use UCC to bring together
multiple forms of communications, like voice,
video and data services, and software applications
into a single environment, making it easier to
connect. Business processes improve as a result.

Without a doubt, technology has revolutionized the way business is done. The vast majority of internal and external communication is now done through email, instant messaging, VOIP and other types of electronic communication. In addition, most business documents exist in digital form. The digitization of business has had significant implications for litigation. Legal eDiscovery is now an essential part of settling cases between organizations. Previously, many companies believed that eDiscovery was only for organizations that were public or highly regulated, but now most companies recognize that electronically stored information (ESI) regulations are applicable to all organizations and there is an ever-increasing need for cost-effective eDiscovery.

An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare.
