Prescriptions for Cisco, Microsoft, Polycom, Unify, Mitel, and Huawei.
Happy New Year, and welcome to 2014! It’s time for all of us to make some New Year’s resolutions and stick to them! For example, Alex Rodriguez probably resolved to lay off the steroids. Larry Ellison, I’m sure, made a resolution to not blow off his own keynote again this year. I think if we checked in with Miley Cyrus, she’s made a resolution to twerk less…or maybe more since it seemed to have re-ignited her career. For the UC industry though, there are a number of resolutions that I would like to see vendors make:
* Cisco and Microsoft resolve to make interoperability easier. There has been no greater battle to watch in UC than Cisco and Microsoft butting heads. Sometimes though, two enemies partnering together just might create a force stronger than two individuals. Remember when Randy “Macho Man” Savage partnered with Hulk Hogan, and the “Madness met the Mania?” Has there ever been a stronger tag-team combination? Or in the recent Star Trek-Into Darkness, when Kirk and Khan teamed up to defeat Admiral Marcus, they did so because of their combined strength.
