Santa Clara, Calif. – April 29, 2019 – Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA) today announced it has been recognized as a Leader in the The Aragon Research Globe for Unified Communications and Collaboration, 2019.
According to the report1, authored by Aragon Research lead analyst Jim Lundy and associate analyst Samra Anees, “Avaya has a robust portfolio of cloud and private cloud offerings that leverage its API based UCC platform. Avaya is fully committed to cloud, and its video-based offerings work out of the box or can be integrated into existing, client-facing applications. While Avaya has a large on-premise install base, the shift to cloud positions it well for the future.”
Avaya IX Workplace unified communication solutions help take collaboration and productivity to new levels, designed to incorporate calling, messaging, meetings, and team collaboration all into one, easy-to-use platform.

Avaya IX Workplace can be delivered in whatever way customers prefer—on premise or private, public or hybrid cloud.
