23 The UC Civil War can lead to a Frankenstein Global financial services firm Our situation is slightly more complicated in that enterprise decisions have already been made on the technology solution front. We have already chosen Cisco for enterprise voice, outsourced conference hosting to Intercall and signed an ecal with Microsoft that includes Lync. To your question below, we have an internally hosted Meeting Place environment that is being retired as part of the move to Intercall. Now we are trying to figure out how to wire this together into a seamless unified communications experience. The RFP is to hire a consultancy that will help us build what is starting to feel like a Frankenstein solution. 23 Entire contents 2011 Forrester Research, Inc. All rights reserved.

30 Recommendations Unified Communications is a journey you may need a travel agent. Use the UC checklist for success. UC is not a mandated technology so it s harder to drive it. Drive your vendors, partners to develop relevant use cases. Get executive support teach, don t tell. Consumerization, especially mobility is your ally not the enemy. Use Viral Marketing Locate who has the UC Flu Promote their stories to infect the rest of the enterprise Use your Marketing department Formal research to identify barriers Internal promotion 30 Entire contents 2011 Forrester Research, Inc.
