Avaya’s Laurent Philonenko, SVP Innovation, to Speak at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2018

Santa Clara, Calif. – September 17, 2018 – Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA) today announced that Laurent Philonenko, Avaya SVP, Innovation, will be giving a presentation titled “Harnessing Transformational Technology for Better Human Experience” at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2018 on October 17, 2018.

This year, Avaya is named a Leader in both the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Contact Center Infrastructure, Worldwide and the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications by Gartner.1

Building on its heritage as a global leader in Contact Center (CC) and Unified Communications (UC) solutions, Avaya will demonstrate several solutions driving impactful customer and employee experiences incorporating cutting-edge technologies via an open ecosystems approach.

Philonenko will provide expert insight into how consumer expectations for engaging with businesses have shifted, and contact centers—often among the first points of interaction in a customer’s journey—must follow suit. Getting there, however, isn’t simply about adding more technology. It’s about making customer service more human through the use of the right tools and technologies, like artificial intelligence, that leverage a company’s data-rich channels to create better experiences, transforming how business is conducted and building brand loyalty.

The Gartner Symposium/ITxpo is described as a gathering of thousands of CIOs and senior IT executives discussing key topics including application modernization, artificial intelligence, blockchain, business intelligence & data analytics, cloud computing, cost optimization, customer experience, digital transformation, platforms & strategy, emerging & advanced technologies, enterprise architecture, I&O modernization, innovation, Internet of Things, leadership, security & risk, and work, people & culture.

Avaya will be located at booth 233, Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort, Orlando, Florida, October 14-18.
