President, Global Communications Solutions, Avaya
"We have a simple goal for Avaya unified communications solutions: enable any employee to use any device in any location to collaborate effectively. This can mean enabling a nurse to launch a call to a doctor from a patient care application, or enabling ad hoc collaboration that starts as an IM, escalates to a multiparty conference call with document sharing -- all with the swipe of a finger. Avaya delivers a powerful, integrated experience for end-users that's easy for IT to manage and highly cost-effective for the business."
