This paper will first discuss the impact of cloud computing, consumerization of IT, and the emergence of social media in driving the transition from traditional on-premises call centers to a superior model, the cloud contact center.
The “consumerization” of healthcare and sweeping policy changes will require that healthcare providers become more competitive or risk being left behind. Gaining the competitive edge means finding scalable efficiencies, leveraging the wealth of available patient data for improved care, and figuring out how to meet (or sometimes treat) patients where they already are—whether that happens to be at work, at the mall, or on the street.
While Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT) technologies promise to create massive efficiencies and a transformed patient experience, traditional wired connectivity solutions are often costly, difficult to deploy, and don’t offer the flexibility required for effective M2M and IoHT deployments.

Users are increasingly becoming accustomed to instant gratification when using technology in their personal lives, whether for gaming, shopping or managing their daily activities. And they want the same kind of immediate service when they go to work. To address this expectation, IT support needs to adapt, evolve and even revolutionize itself or become outdated.

Consumer-focused technologies that are deployed by employees can provide tremendous value to any business and can provide IT organizations with more functionality than they can afford or are willing to deploy. However, consumer technologies must be appropriately managed in order to satisfy corporate security, compliance and other requirements. This means integrating consumer technologies into the existing IT fabric in order to achieve the greatest possible synergies between consumer-focused and IT-deployed technologies.

Enterprise conferencing and collaboration technologies today stand at an exciting crossroads. Solutions that were once considered consumer technologies are moving into the enterprise. Never has this trend been more pronounced than now, as consumerization of IT and mobile device proliferation increasingly break down the walls between business and consumer use. As a result, enterprise solutions must become increasingly simpler to deploy and more intuitive to use. At the same time they must deliver a secure and seamless communications experience. As the worlds of consumer and business communications blend, walking the line between the two has become top of mind for users and IT decision makers alike. Businesses must capitalize on these tectonic shifts in user preferences by deploying agile communications that today’s mobile users need in order to collaborate effectively wherever they are.
