The Dominion Group of Companies offers clients a wide range of professional services, including investment advising, trust services, wealth management, and insurance. Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the company has three main offices as well as independent affiliate offices in multiple locations throughout the United States. Dominion is a small but growing company, currently employing 40 people.
A recent opportunity for expansion of the trust side of the business required Dominion to branch out from its Virginia Beach headquarters, opening an office in Florida and relocating one of the firm’s principals to that location. A top priority during that transition was maintaining effective communication, despite the
distance, to limit any disruption to existing client services and workflows.

Bring security and operations together to protect your organization!
Collaborative workflow processes that eliminate friction between security and operations teams sharply lower the risk of data breaches and operational downtime. Enterprises can advance their business agenda by minimizing communications breakdowns that leave the organization vulnerable to cyberattacks. This book shows you how!
The concept of all centralizing all communication methodologies (presence, instant messaging, voice, video, and messaging services) within a single system, a.k.a. unified communications or UC, is not new. One of the most popular platforms is Microsoft. In fact, Microsoft has indicated that it has 110 million Skype for Business or Lync users around the world.
However, many organizations have yet to fully embrace the video conferencing capabilities available within Skype for Business / Lync. Overall we view Skype for Business (SfB) video conferencing as an excellent choice for sessions involving only SfB users. However, the SfB experience is focused more on content sharing and less on live video.
Download this whitepaper to learn 12 situations in which users may wish to use a different video conferencing tool. In this paper, Wainhouse also compares two options for companies seeking better video capabilities.

Mobile Workforce Management solutions enable companies to deliver superior field service and customer satisfaction (see Part I, Setting The Stage For Best Practices Service Performance). However, a successful Mobile Workforce Management transformation is dependent upon many factors beyond simply deploying new technology. It requires a full understanding of the overall business objectives, a keen understanding of historical processes, a standard system of key performance metrics along with the organization’s current performance in those metrics, and effective communication to ensure organizational readiness and project execution.
A hospital’s network is the foundation for the critical applications that run on it, where most of those applications are related to the hospitals core businesses. The return on the investments made in EMR (electronic medical records), PACS (picture archiving and communication system), clinical imaging systems and workstations on wheels, can only be truly realized if those assets are always available to the people in need in a reliable, secure and highly optimized way, at a fixed location, or while mobile.

In order to help businesses assess their collaboration strategies, Cisco recently commissioned a worldwide study to explore the business value of in-person communication in distributed organizations with respect to their interactions with partners and customers.
Managing customer relationships profitably is a challenge many businesses face. Increasingly available information and customer choices translate into a decrease in automatic loyalty. New distribution and communication channels create more complex customer interactions. Implementing powerful technology enablers may be prohibitively expensive for many firms.
To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.
Unified Communications (UC) aims to unite securely and seamlessly all the different business communications channels that exist in a company. That includes voice, video, data, IM, mobility and the Web etc. This report examines in detail the key industry drivers and benefits that are inspiring large scale enterprises to adopt a Unified Communications strategy.

SSL certificates have moved beyond the ‘Buy’ page. They are embedded in your business. For example,
they protect remote communications via webmail, chat and IM. Browser-to-server communications
for cloud-based services require SSL certificates to protect confidential information. In addition, SSL
certificates are used to secure server-to-server communications for applications and data exchange.
In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing
individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers,
different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services.
